Sm. Animal Vet. Science 1

This class will explore units in veterinary sciences with emphasis on small domesticated pets. Much of the
material can be applied to human medicine and is strongly recommended for students interested in the human medical field because of the hands-on approach to actually doing surgery on animals and working with the mammal system. Students will have an opportunity to apply practices used by veterinarians and animal scientist with dogs, cats, and laboratory animals. Units in reproductive physiology and anatomy, feeding practices, disease control, management practices, handling techniques and animal housing will be discussed. Field trips, labs, professional guest speakers, and actual
                                                                                   surgeries will supplement the classroom instruction.
