First-year Veterinary Science students reviewed the characteristics of living organisms, such as homeostasis, metabolism, and reproduction in class recently. These principles are “the backbone of the program,” according to Career and Technical Education teacher Christina Urbanski, who also reviewed the differences between warm-blooded and cold-blooded animals. Students were present both in class and via Zoom.

Veterinary Science students study animal anatomy and physiology, animal nutrition, animal reproduction, animal ethics and welfare issues and veterinary office practices. They also learn about careers in the animal science field including veterinarian, veterinary technician, veterinary assistant and others.
