    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it gives you access to information that not all schools can give you. Vet science is a very hands on class. Just this year I have participated in numerous dissections, field trips, and animal restraints. This gives you a glimpse into the world of veterinary science and prepares you for the years of schooling to come. Although I am not going into a career in animal science, the knowledge I have learned in this class will help me pursue a career in the medical field.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned a lot about different types of animals, body systems, and about different careers in animal health. We have a lot of guest speakers that teach us not only about traditional medical treatments, but also the less common approaches like Reiki, and Acupuncture. We also get the opportunity to deal with a lot of live animals. One of my favorites parts about this class is processing the baby piglets and goats. There is a lot of work done with them before they are even a few days old such as trimming their needle teeth, cutting the umbilical cord, and giving them their iron shots. Another exciting part is dealing with organs and dissections. We are able to get a hands on experience with hearts, lungs, and many other organs. Just last week our class got to watch a necropsy on an adult pig preformed by a veterinarian. This was an amazing opportunity because no picture or video could capture the experience I got during that autopsy.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are considering taking the class a good thing to remember is that taking this class is beneficial to more people than just those interested in veterinary medicine. Most of my class now is not interested in pursuing a career in that field but still find the information relevant to their lives. The students who have pets, horses, or know anyone with an animal, can aid from the education of this class. Another piece of advice is to study a little bit every night. In order to really remember the information and take the experiences with you after its over, you need to continuously work hard and look over your notes. If this is truly a class you are interested in, I encourage you to take this class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because I learned the basics of Veterinary Science through this class. Without it, I would not have been able to get the job I have nor would I know what career path I would want to go into. It is very hands-on but has the rigorous academics of a normal classroom course as well. It is one of the more difficult classes and draws in students who wish to specify in veterinary sciences, which is another part attraction. The students and the teacher are clearly passionate about the subject which makes learning enjoyable and interesting.

    Course highlights:

    Junior year focused on alternative medicine, animal restraints, Latin prefixes, suffixes, and roots, office protocol and interview preparation, and parasitology. This year we are focusing on anatomy and physiology and exotic animal care. So far, I have used the majority of the information learned in a real-world application.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take every opportunity that this course has to offer, because it will give you a significant advantage compared to others your age. This course gives a solid foundation to all students who are determined to go into the Animal Science field and it will be significantly harder when it comes to college and job experience without it.
