DescriptionThis is a one-year hands-on program focus­ing on the skills required to work in careers involving animal care. Students spend a large portion of their time working with animals. At the local Humane Society, students develop safe handling skills and learn how to perform physical examinations and treatments. The students operate the SLC "Scruffy Dog Salon" where they groom dogs under the supervision of a national certified master groomer. Lab time is also spent learning surgical sup­port techniques and basic clinical laboratory procedures which aid in the diagnosis and treatment of disease in domestic animals.

Students learn about animal health and disease, behaviour, handling and general care (involving cats, dogs, exotic pets, wildlife and livestock), dog grooming, and basic laboratory procedures. Students also study computer operations and office procedures, and they practice communication and mar­keting techniques.

This program is not open to International students.
