Veticus - the first high school competition for veterinary technicians in Slovenia

Do you know what your pet dog tells you when it smiles at you from the corners of its lips? Knowing the pet's body language is extremely important for the proper care of animals.

That was one of the competition topics for the 3rd- and 4th-grade veterinary students on the 1st high school competition Veticus.

140 male and female students took part in the competition, and the best 50 competed further in practical tests. Students competed in theoretical and practical knowledge of recognizing different animal species' behaviour, approaches, and fixation.

The best 15 competitors qualified for the final situation test.

Estimated total reach or number of participants: 140
