PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Some famous veterinarians were in Philadelphia to bring animal science to city schools.

The Critter Fixers are made up of Dr. Terrence Ferguson and Dr. Vernard Hodges. They have a hit show on Nat Geo and Disney+ where they help animals in need.

On Monday they visited W.B. Saul High School for Agriculture in Philadelphia to host "Vet For A Day," a no cost program to bring the veterinary and animal sciences to city schools.

And they brought their camera crews to document the whole thing!

They say less than 2% of veterinarians in the United States are Black, so this is one of the missions they have to open up the field to a more diverse crowd.

Kira Fullwood is a student participating in Vet For A Day. She says she's learning so much about the field.

"I'm excited to see animals I've never seen. I think it's getting a lot of attention it gets us students to learn about animal science when we never would have thought about it before," she said.
