Animal Health Clinic

Lakeland’s animal health technology diploma program is one of the most popular programs at the College. In the fall of 2010, Lakeland launched a veterinary medical assistant certificate program.

Students in both programs use the already crowded animal clinic. Originally designed as a dairy training facility, the building was converted to an animal clinic in 1989. Despite renovations in 2000, the space no longer meets the needs of the College.

A larger, modern facility located on the farm site for easier access to large animals would be ideal. As well, industry has indicated that there are future opportunities to expand programming in the animal health field. In addition to the $5.2 million building cost, $1.5 million will be needed for the specialized animal medical equipment required for the success of this clinic.
