Animal Health Technology (AHT) - Overview
Lakeland College offers you hands on clinical experience, taught by vets and vet tech professionals. You'll learn and work in a provincially inspected veterinary hospital and a nationally accredited program..
Your experience includes both small and large animals--from SPCA dogs and cats to the college’s sheep, cattle and horses.
At our small animal clinic, you’ll put what you learn to work. Some examples:
- use your knowledge of anatomy to take a diagnostic radiograph
- learn clinical lab procedures on blood and urine that you have collected.
- place a catheter and monitor anesthesia in surgery
- meet with real clients to talk about their pet’s health and nutrition.
