Veterinarians diagnose animal health problems, vaccinate against diseases, medicate animals suffering from infections or illnesses, treat and dress wounds, set fractures, perform surgery, and advise owners about animal feeding, behavior, and breeding. Some veterinarians conduct research and development.

Pre-Professional programs are selected as a second program to accompany any primary major of the student’s choosing. The Associate in Science (AS) is intended for students who ultimately wish to complete a baccalaureate science degree at a four-year college or university. The AS curriculum courses focus on courses such as biology, chemistry, engineering, geology, mathematics, or physics.

Students should keep in mind the limits on the number of credits that transfer to the four-year university and review all material on the institutions' websites. Requirements may change, and time limits often apply to science coursework.
