Veterinary technician students, along with faculty and staff, got a chance to show off their pets at the annual vet tech Pet Picnic on October 6. Proud parents of four-legged fur balls, snakes, lizards, and even a fish paraded their pets in front of a panel of NCC judges, all for the chance to win gift baskets loaded with treats to make Fido smile. Check out more fun photos from this event at Flickr.
