Large animal lab at Cedar Valley College

Students are never required to travel to Cedar Valley to attend classes or complete lab practical exams. The laboratory portion of Large Animal Assisting techniques (VTHT 2325)* is offered on the Cedar Valley College campus for students who do not have access to a large animal training location. The lab is offered in the fall and spring semesters and is held over a two-day period on a Thursday and Friday. This lab covers all of the AVMA-required, hands-on large-animal tasks and gives students a chance to visit the campus, meet the instructors, and interact with other DEVTP students from all over the country. Students in DEVTP also have the option of submitting videos of the required tasks instead of traveling to campus.

*Travel fees and lodging for this lab are not included in tuition.
