Large Animal

Large Animal

Whether you want to be a large animal, small animal, mixed practice, or exotics vet, you’ll need large animal experience to get through vet school! Equine practice and farm animal production are major areas of veterinary medicine and a big part of the veterinary curriculum. Our large animal component was designed from the recommendations and prerequisites of AVMA accredited veterinary institutions to give you the most relevant hands-on experience. Students work with a variety of animals in a large production setting and through our non-profit community project.
