UNION COUNTY — The Animal and Vet Science class, offered at the Union County Career and Technology Education Center, gives high school students the opportunity to learn about all areas of animal agriculture.
One of the areas focused most strongly on is the area of veterinary medicine. During the course of the year, students get to engage in hands-on clinical and practical labs.
Recently, students have been given the opportunity to work with live animals at a local shelter administering vaccinations and performing “clicker training,” a sound and reward based training.
During the week of May 12-16, students performed many laboratories on simulator animals. Among the labs completed, were Canine CPR, IV insertion, and blood transfusions.
