Vets in Action at ZSL London Zoo

Saturday 10 February to Sunday 18 February 2018 

The vets will see you now!

Kids can join in with Vets in Action at ZSL London Zoo this half-term

ZSL London Zoo is inviting children to become Zoo vets this February half-term - at Animal Hospital, an award-winning role-playing experience for budding veterinarians.

From Saturday 10 to Sunday 18 February as part of Vets in Action, kids will be able to truly step into the role of a vet at ZSL London Zoo, during a packed week of interactive family events celebrating the incredible work of the Zoo’s vet team. 

After arriving for work at the hospital’s reception, junior vets will be prepped with hairnets and masks before joining the team in the Zoo’s specially recreated interactive vet centre.

Becoming part of the action, children will help experts examine, x-ray and carry out treatments on toys - experiencing first-hand the huge variety of work carried out by the Zoo’s vets, vet nurses and zookeepers on a daily basis. 

After the masks come off, a packed schedule of talks and activities throughout the week will take families further inside the exciting world of the Zoo’s animals and the people who look after them - explaining everything the ZSL team does to keep 18,000 residents in tip-top condition, from microchipping penguins to checking tiger teeth. 

Vets in Action at ZSL London Zoo, will run from Saturday 10 to Sunday 18 February 2018. A great value day out, Animal Hospital and all extra activities are included in the entry price. Beat the queues at the gate and book tickets online now at
