Supporting the next generation of veterinarians!

4-H Veterinary Science Program

Teens ages 13 to 19 with an interest in animals and veterinary science careers should consider joining our 4-H Veterinary Science Program! The program is coordinated in partnership with SUNY Ulster and takes place during the Spring semester. Area veterinarians and other speakers provide instruction and lectures. Youth explore animal science, including attitude and behavior, maintaining animal health, and the organs and systems of the animal body. Animal diseases are discussed including viruses, bacteria, and parasites that affect animal health. The instructors also discuss the profession of veterinary science and career paths.

The 2024 Veterinary Science Program will take place on Thursday evenings.

Registration is now open! Click here to register now!
