With more than 85 million households owning at least one pet, the veterinary field is a growing field! The Veterinary Assistant program combines 35-hours of classroom training with a 24-hour volunteer experience.  Veterinary Assistants are valued team members in veterinary practices, clinics, and hospitals.  They work with veterinarians and veterinary technicians to provide quality care for healthy, sick, and injured animals.  In this program, students will receive hands-on training on the correct handling and care of pets, learn proper examination procedures, and discover how to check for signs of illness and injury.  Additional topics covered include anatomy and physiology, medical terminology and acronyms, nutrition, legal, ethical, and professional standards, and maintenance and management of a veterinary practice.  Textbook purchased separately. 

Homework, quizzes, and handouts are accessed online; access to internet, printer, and email are required.
