Cincinnati Museum Center and, the nation's largest general veterinary practice, have joined together to create an exhibit celebrating the health and wellness of our four-legged family members. Visit our kid-sized Banfield Pet Hospital in the Duke Energy Children's Museum to explore the reception area, exam tables, grooming station, kennels and real veterinary tools. Practice checking vital signs of stuffed animal pets, reviewing X-rays and weighing pets.
During our Pet Academy program (previously called FutureVet), bring your young animal lovers to meet local therapy dogs and receive a stethoscope to try on your pets at home!*

Pet Academy programs
11 a.m. to noon
I love being a part of [this] program because it teaches children the concept of stewardship and responsibility for those animals who trust us with their care. We discuss the importance of preventative medical care not only or our pets but for ourselves as well. It is amazing to watch how excited the kids get when they see the animals and want to share their experiences! Being a part of this program is a gift that I hope to be a part of for a long time!- DR. ELIZABETH SANDFOSS, CHIEF OF STAFF, BANFIELD PET HOSPITAL #2344
