Kids and Pets

AVA PetPEP is the Australian Veterinary Association's Pets and People Education Program. 

The Murray Bridge Veterinary Clinic values and cares for the community and participates in the AVA PetPEP program. We regularly visit day care centres, kindergartens and schools to teach children and the community about responsible pet ownership, safety around animals, healthy living (pets and people), welfare of animals and animals in the community. 

Please get your school or child care provider to contact the clinic to organise a visit. 

The AVA PetPEP webiste is for everyone - teachers, students and animal care professionals. It includes great information and fun activities to educate children on pets.
