How did this class help you?

“Taking the class at the end of my junior year allowed me to apply what I had previously learned in animal physiology and nutrition classes and further my understanding of those concepts in the context of canine medicine. I noticed a difference in myself while working in a small animal hospital; I was able to use what I learned in The Dog to better communicate with doctors and clients, as well as have a deeper clinical understanding of the cases I was involved with. ”

Did this course prepare you for Vet school?

“Now, as I prepare to start veterinary school at UF in a couple months, I feel I have an advantage already being familiar with some of my professors and having good introductions into many of my courses. I would highly recommend this class to anyone considering a career in veterinary medicine!”

“I took The Dog class because I wanted to learn more about my favorite species.”
