Helping our next generation of animal care professionals
Dr. Pike participates in Career Day at the Van Antwerp Middle School in August, 2012. Through this program, seventh graders learn about what its like in the daily life of a small animal veterinarian.
Dr. Pike also teaches kids the ins and outs of daily veterinary life at the APF'S "Vet for a Day".
We believe strongly in the APF's mission to find forever homes for lost, stray, or abandoned pets.
We participate in the Niskayuna and Shenendehowa CEIP programs. These programs offers high school students the opportunity to "shadow" a veterinarian, allowing potential veterinarians the opportunity to see the ins and outs of a small animal practice.
"I Love My Pet" annual high school art contest
Aqueduct Animal Hospital hosts an annual art show every June. Niskayuna High School students submit animal themed artwork. Judging criteria is based on the artwork that best displays an animal's personality, beauty, purpose, and/or the human/animal bond. Four winners are selected and their art is displayed in our lobby for a year. This annual contest started in 2012. Its a great way for aspiring artists to have their work displayed as well as gain a resume-building experience.
