Omnis Animalis Blog

This year the Future Vets Club has decided to revamp the Omnis Animalis into a more casual and light-hearted – yet still educational and helpful – blog! Our vision for this blog is to feature some inspiring individuals ranging from veterinarians, faculty, student veterinarians, and undergraduate students, to bring you fun and informative information that covers a wide range of topics, as well as keep you in the loop of any exciting events that happen over the year!

Please reach out to us via email (fvc@uoguelph.ca) or Facebook messenger and let us know what you want to read about. Students are welcome to submit blog posts about any topic relating to your school journey, plans for the future, veterinary and animal experiences, or one of your own ideas, to get featured on the Omnis Animalis Blog!

Blog posts will be uploaded onto our website monthly. We are all very eager to share this with you and hope you enjoy reading it throughout the school year!
