Vintage Veterinary Exhibit at Heritage Park
Veterinarians played a significant role in the development of Western Canada’s agricultural and ranching industries. Set in the early 1900’s the project will showcase the development of the veterinary industry and the role played by veterinarians in the North West Mounted Police (NWMP), livestock inspection services, pharmaceutical products and general practice.
The interactive exhibit that vibrantly brings to life the story of the early veterinarian in Western Canada, will be located in the livery barn.
The Vintage Veterinary Exhibit will feature:
- The working office of a turn-of-the century veterinarian in Western Canada
- First-person interpretation including the activity of a traveling veterinarian in period costume via horse and carriage throughout the historical village
- A collection of artifacts that depict the tools and trappings of a veterinarian’s practice
