The Royal Veterinary College (RVC) has launched a naked calendar to support veterinary charity Vetlife, which provides a free and confidential counselling service to anyone in the veterinary profession.
Students are selling the calendar on the college’s eBay account, priced at £10 and all proceeds will go to the charity.
With campuses in Camden and Hertfordshire, the RVC is the second oldest veterinary university on the world. The college runs two animal hospitals, one for dogs and cats, and one for large animals and horses.
The veterinary course is five years long, and in the final year students rotate around the different hospital departments as they begin the final preparations for graduation.
The year culminates in a series of traditions, including the naked calendar, a variety show ‘Final Year Revue’ and graduate ball.
Final year student Ben Smith, who starred in the calendar, said: “There are many traditions associated with being a final year at the RVC. We have created a naked calendar featuring our soon-to-be vets with the animals we spend our time taking care of. The sale of the calendar is supporting Vetlife a charity which provides a free and confidential counselling service to anyone in the veterinary profession.”
