Like rabbits and bunnies? Then you should take Vet Science
In My Own Words
I am taking the Veterinary Science course. I choose this class because I want to be a veterinarian when I grow up.
In class we have two baby pigs that we take care of, we also have four bunnies. We have the mother bunny which is Alice, her boyfriend Bear, their daughter Stella, and a stray named Winnie.

On that day we caught the baby pigs running around and they both slipped and fell on their sides which didn’t really hurt them. We also had a chance to pick up one of the pigs but the pigs were very noisy so I didn’t pick them up.
The bunnies on the other other hand are friendly except Winnie who bites people randomly. Luckily, I've never been bitten. Alice, Bear, and Stella are all so soft and fluffy plus they like to cuddle. A couple of days ago we had to find out the temperature, respiration rate, and the heart rate of the four bunnies and the baby pigs.
Veterinary Science Course Description
The Veterinary Science course examines the practical aspects of animal science as it relates to animal ownership, handling and health. The study of both large and small animals will be incorporated into this course. Areas to be covered include introductions to reproduction, pet care and management, animal CPR, digestive and nutrition systems, animal disease, animal rights, animal welfare, animal communication/behavior, and animal breeds. Leadership and community development will also be a part of this course. This course is recommended for any student interested in animals.
