Veterinary Science

April 9, 2020

The 4-H Veterinary Science Project provides youth a fun and hands-on learning experience that helps them learn more about the Veterinary Science profession, and opportunities for careers in animal health. Subjects such as general health care, physiology, anatomy and careers are presented in the curricular materials, through workshops such as Science Workshops for Youth, and through hands on experiences with local veterinarians. Youth also have the opportunity to develop responsibility, decision making and communication skills through active participation in the 4-H Veterinary Science Project.
