Zoo Vet Experience

Go behind the scenes to visit Sunset Zoo's onsite veterinary clinic.  Through a partnership with Kansas State University's Veterinary Health Center, Sunset Zoo is able to provide one of the best healthcare programs in the nation for the animals in our care.  During the Zoo Vet Experience, you will see and learn about the preventative program in place that forms the basis for the healthcare program.  You will meet one of Sunset Zoo's ornate box turtles while you visit the veterinary clinic, then take a trip outside to see a screech owl and red tailed hawk. Participants in this program will receive a stethoscope to use and keep as a souvenir.

This experience is ideal for families with children interested in becoming a veterinarian, and groups interested in learning more about the efforts we take to ensure the wellbeing of the animals in our care at Sunset Zoo.
