UPEI AVC hosts retirement party for seven beagles


The University of Prince Edward Island Atlantic Veterinary College (AVC) recently hosted a heart-warming retirement party for seven beagles. The dogs played an integral role in providing hands-on training to AVC students in the past by helping them to learn basic veterinary techniques. As the institution transitions to using lifelike model dogs, virtual reality simulations, and client-owned dogs, the seven beagles are being adopted by AVC students and community members who had already established a relationship with them. At their retirement party last week, the retirees were met with personalized certificates of appreciation, treats, toys, and best wishes as they embark on their happy retirement.
