The Veterinary Science program is designed to give you a head start towards a career in the Veterinary field. Veterinary science students handle and provide care for a variety of animals on a daily basis. The basic hands-on experience gives students comfort and confidence around all animals. In the lab setting, students learn to restrain an animal, perform a physical exam, draw samples, administer injections and create preventative health management plans. Students also study animal behavior, grooming techniques and training practices.
