Focus of this class will be on small animals. Students who are interested in veterinary science, vet tech, production animal science or animal owners will benefit from this introductory class. Field trips, guest speakers, job shadow opportunities and labs will make this class relevant to the real world. This class is suggested to take before the CO-OP Animal Science class held in Whitehall. This class has also been accepted as a DPI accredited science credit.
