Lg. Animal Vet. Science

In this course, students will focus on the large animal veterinary sciences with specialization in horses, dairy, beef, swine, and sheep 
species. Emphasis will be placed upon knowledge and practices that veterinarians and animal scientists use daily with those animals. This is an excellent class for the student interested in the human medicine field because of the laboratory experiments done in class. Reproductive physiology, anatomy, food science, genetics, biotechnology, surgical procedures and techniques, nutrition, diseases, parasites, artificial insemination and management of large animals, will be explored. Computers will be used for genetic manipulation, identification, and management decisions. Field trips, and professional guest lectures will supplement classroom instruction.
