I also served as a veterinary assistant for seven years in a small animal clinic.
Homework Offered
Discussion topics will be largely student-led and related to current seasons, holidays, growing stages, etc. Students are encouraged to prepare something current to share, but no formal homework is assigned, and students may simply come to class ready to chat.
