From the looks of awe of those viewing live reindeer to the happy faces on children visiting with Santa for a holiday photo, the Open House at Belle Mead Animal Hospital was a huge success. The event took place on Dec. 7, 2013 from 1-4 p.m. A steady line of visitors poured into the hospital grounds while team members directed traffic and logged in visitors to the live reindeer.
Many came with leashed dogs and lined up with children and family members to have special holiday photos with Santa by professional photographer Raj Iyer. Visitors were encouraged to tour the hospital and were greeted with goodie bags, apple cider and cookie treats along the way.
Two live reindeer were on display outside on the hospital property and were a main attraction. Owner Mark Spoko of Reindeer Magic and Miracles answered questions and offered attendees background on the reindeer in a most entertaining way. To the delight of the guests, he even coaxed one of the reindeer to “dance” for the crowd.
Guests were encouraged to walk through the hospital with team members available to answer questions. Many were introduced to the hospital cats Tommy and Softee Bear, and some even got to see a few of the ferret patients up close.
This was a fun and informative afternoon spent in a top-notch animal hospital. If you’ve never seen live reindeer up close, you missed a great opportunity.
