altMVMA Surgery Suite at the Minnesota State Fair

Thursday, August 24, through Monday, September 4, 2017

The MVMA will once again be involved at the Minnesota State Fair! The MVMA Surgery Suite is going into its 26th year of doing surgery at the Fair. Surgeries are performed at 10:00 am, 12:00 noon, 2:00 pm, and 4:00 pm. This is a great chance to give back to your profession by giving the public an up-close view at the work you do, while educating them about the importance of spaying and neutering their pets. Volunteers are needed.
