    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The small animal courses prepare you to handle and care for small animals and livestock animals. The material taught is very detailed. The course prepares students who are interested in becoming a veterinarian, owning a farm with livestock or any agriculture related careers. Lectures include anatomy, handling, housing and disease and parasites. Students work hands on with all the animals, learning as much as they can about the animals.

    Course highlights:

    By taking this course I have learned to handle and properly care for small animals such as rats, mice, guinea pigs, gerbils, ferrets, rabbits, and hamsters as well as livestock animals such as cows, sheep, pigs, and horses. The hands on experience is what makes the course extremely educational. The information that is learned during lecture can be applied while working directly with the animals.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDY, STUDY, STUDY!!!!! Lectures are very detailed and when learning about multiple animals it is important to know about the animals you are working with. Remember to keep yourself as well as the animal you are handling safe. Know the animals, know what the like and what they don't like. Always treat the animals with respect. They will remember who you are. If you are unsure of how to handle an animal ask for assistance from your teacher or another classmate. Have fun! If you love animals and are willing to put the time and effort into studying, this course will be your favorite and you will enjoy every minute of it.
