NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Is your favorite stuffed animal due for his annual checkup? If so, you can bring him down to the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere for the yearly Teddy Bear Clinic, presented by Swuager and Suiter Pediatric Dentistry at the HCA Healthcare Veterinary Center early next month.

The clinic will be held March 4 and 5, and children can bring their favorite teddy bear or stuffed animal friend to be seen by Nashville Zoo veterinary staff. The Veterinary Department will be on call to perform routine checkups on your child’s stuffed animal during the walk-through experience.

Stuffed animals will receive a certificate of Beary Good Health, and children will receive hands-on learning experiences, take part in a photo booth and more.
