Veterinary Science

Vet ScienceDo you have dreams of becoming a veterinarian? Maybe you want to understand more about your animals’ bodies and about how to keep them healthy. In this project you’ll learn first about the normal animal, basic animal anatomy, and the body’s different organ systems. Next you’ll examine health and disease topics and get an in-depth look at normal and abnormal conditions. Find out about careers in veterinary medicine and how to prepare for going to college to study animal health.
