Clients of AVC’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital (VTH) got a “behind-the-scenes” look at some of the specialty services offered by the hospital earlier this month, including dentistry, oncology, theriogenology, and CT scanner technology, during the College’s second annual Client Appreciation Reception.

About 70 people attended the event. Guest speakers included Donna Hassard, a long-time client and vice-chair of the veterinary medicine priority in UPEI’s current INSPIRE! fundraising campaign, and Cheryl Jewell, of Jewell Dale Farm Inc. Jewell Dale Farm is a client of the VTH and has been since it opened in 1988. The Jewell family plays an important part in the College’s teaching program, providing opportunities for thousands of veterinary students to learn about bovine medicine, herd production, and management. For their contributions to AVC and veterinary medicine, the Jewell family and Jewell Dale Farm were awarded the College’s 2017 Honourable Eugene F. Whelan Green Hat Award earlier this fall.

The reception was jointly organized by the UPEI Department of Development and Alumni Engagement and the AVC Dean’s Office, with support from the VTH.
