REGISTRATION IS OPEN FOR THE 2023 - 2024 CLASSES!
In this series of classes, we will explore the world of veterinary medicine.
What does it take to become a vet and what can you do now to prepare? What challenges and problems does a veterinarian tackle in an average day? We’ll look at a day in the life of a vet, learn about common small animal health problems, and try our hands at diagnosing a few cases along the way. Students will have a weekly assignment to complete outside of class and will have an active role in class discussions.
This program will cover a variety of topics starting with veterinary basics such as how to perform a physical exam and take a good patient history. We’ll also learn about preventative health care, common small animal diseases, household toxins, and emergency situations.
Prerequisites: a love of learning and a willingness to participate in class discussions and complete homework
Homework: Students will have a weekly assignment (roughly 30 minutes) that will be fun and educational. Students should come to class prepared to share and discuss their homework with the class.
Teacher: Jennifer Waldyke, DVM.
Jennifer is a graduate of The College of Veterinary Medicine at Oklahoma State University and practiced small animal medicine along with veterinary emergency and critical care for many years before “retiring” to homeschool her own children. She has a tortoiseshell calico cat named Buttercup and a very spoiled beagle named Cosmo.
