Veterinary students enrolled in the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine will present a community "Dogwash" on Saturday, April 22, from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. on the campus of Virginia Tech.

The community dogwash event will be held at the rear of the veterinary college complex. Signs on Southgate and Duckpond Drive will help guide dogwash participants to the event.

Presented semi-annually by Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine students enrolled in the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine, the dogwash is always a popular community event. The cost of a dog wash is $10.00 and for an additional $5.00 customers can have their dogs’ nails trimmed and ears cleaned.

Animals will be washed on a "first-come, first-served" basis and no appointments are necessary. Dogs will be washed while owners wait. Dogs must be on a leash, and be at least five months old with current vaccinations.

The dogwash is sponsored by the Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association (SCAVMA), a professional organization for DVM students, and the class of 2009.
