Your stuffed animal friend is due for his annual check-up!
Children are invited to bring their favorite teddy bear or stuffed animal friend to Nashville Zoo’s annual Teddy Bear Clinic presented by Swauger Pediatric Dentistry at the Zoo’s HCA Healthcare Veterinary Center.
Nashville Zoo's Veterinary Department will be on call from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm to perform routine checkups on your child’s stuffed animal. The clinic is FREE with Zoo admission. No registration is necessary.
During the event, there will be animal artifacts and learning experiences with Zoo Docents, crafts, veterinarian dress-up play, a photo booth, animal encounters and more. Children will receive a certificate of Beary Good Health at the end of the checkup.
Nashville Zoo is also participating in Nashville Fire Department, WKRN News 2 and Nashville's i106.7's annual Teddy Bear Drive to collect teddy bears for the The Nashville Children's Alliance and first responders throughout Middle Tennessee. We'll have a bin set up to collect brand new teddy bears for children in need on both event days.
