 Teddy Vet Check

Teddies are precious and we think they deserve lots of love, care and special attention, just like the animals at our zoos. So these school holidays, bring your special teddy (or plush toy) for a free Teddy Vet Check that's filled with lots of TLC (Teddy Loving Care)!

Kids can assist our Teddy Check Team to diagnose their teddy’s ailments, bandage them up and give them special care whilst learning about our amazing animals and how they are cared for.

Select the zoo you would like to visit to find out more!
