Conservation and wildlife biology students will have a better appreciation and understanding of working with various native species for application in the field. In addition, while most veterinary graduates will enter private practice for domestic species, it is inevitable that someone from the general public will show up at the family veterinarian’s office with a baby bird, rabbit, or squirrel, or an injured wild animal at some point.

Having the skills to know how to handle these native wild animals and the basics of triage and what to do, will be added value to employers of the veterinary technician.

We have the Dr. Dana Cox scholarship for veterinary training.
