A third year agriculture science course that gives students hands-on experience as well as certification within the field of Veterinary Assisting. In Veterinary Assisting you learn how to properly care for animals, learn about common veterinary practices and procedures, learn about animal diseases, and work with small and large animals. Students will work towards a Certification for Veterinary Assisting which includes both an exam and 300 work hours at a work site. Students also work with Barks N' Bubbles on-campus where they will help run and provide grooming services for community customers.
