Veterinary Assistant

The Veterinary Assistant program prepares students to assist the veterinarian in all aspects of animal care. Veterinary Assistants provide surgical and nursing care to animals in clinics, as well as field settings. They also provide basic care, perform laboratory procedures, and assist in the veterinary clinic with other functions. Veterinary Assistants work in a variety of settings including animal hospitals and clinics, animal shelters, laboratories, zoos, and animal parks.

The program includes classroom theory, laboratory, and internship experience in local veterinary clinics. Students receive hands-on experience with animals. Program content requires the application of basic math, technical reading, and communications skills.
