Veterinary Science is a laboratory science course that examines anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, and medical terminology while applying scientific knowledge and research to the study of various agriculture and pet animals. Medical terminology and animal disease and diagnosis will be integrated as students understand each of the nine body systems. Students will exceed core academic knowledge and demonstrate critical thinking skills as they apply knowledge to laboratory experimentation, real-life scenarios, medical case studies, and physiological response and treatment of infection. Students will perform advanced research of various physiological and pathological disorders. Students will participate in leadership activities through the Future Farmers of America (FFA)* and will be involved in an agriculture project* as a “hands-on” application of classroom knowledge.
