The Ulster County Veterinary Science Program serves teens ages 13 to 19 who have an interest in the field of veterinary science. This year we will be offering the program virtually! A very special "THANK YOU" to Dr. Beth Alden, Professor of Biology and coordinator of the SUNY Ulster Vet Tech Program, for her many years of service to the 4-H Veterinary Science Program!

This program is held on eight consecutive Wednesdays from March through April. NEW! This year, the program will cover exotics and wildlife rehab! Area veterinarians and other speakers will provide virtual instruction and lectures. Youth will explore the normal animal, including attitude and behavior, maintaining animal health, and the organs and systems of the animal body. Animal diseases will be discussed including viruses, bacteria, and parasites that affect animal health. The instructors will also discuss the profession of veterinary science and career paths.

Participation is limited to 24 students. Registrations will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis, conditional upon receipt of the 4-H enrollment form and full payment. Sorry, no refunds.

Please note that enrolled 4-H member tickets open on 2/3. New 4-H member tickets do not open until 2/10!
