Calling all aspiring vets

nearly a vet

For the second year running, a veterinary hospital in Brisbane is taking a novel approach in educating school children on what the job of a veterinarian entails.

On Saturday 29 June, 12-2pm, wanna-be vets are invited to Manly Road 24hr Veterinary Hospital (MRVH) to attend the ‘Nearly a Vet Convention’—the brainchild of children’s author Rebecca Johnson whose series of books include Juliet nearly a Vet and Vet Cadets.

These books are very popular with young readers so the team at MRVH approached Johnson about holding her ‘Vet Conventions’ at their hospital.

This year, attendees will again practise their vetting skills with other ‘Nearly Vets’ and learn about the real things vets do. They’ll also get some tips on great story writing and character development, as well as receive a ‘Nearly a Vet’ kit to take home, containing a proper child-sized heavy-duty lab coat, a working stethoscope, a Nearly a Vet diary, a specimen jar and much more.

For more information and to buy tickets head to the MRVH Facebook page. Or email Rebecca Porter at
