Students in this program will work directly with LIVE animals – horses, cattle, goats, pigs, rabbits, birds, dogs, and cats which live on our campus. Veterinary classes are in our new Vet Science building which provides direct experiences with our large and small animals.
Students will learn about anatomy, disease prevention, surgical assisting, and grooming. All students are required to earn 250 hours working at local animal treatment centers.
