Upon arrival, the students practiced more leadership staples as well as learning to write thank yous and properly Thank our hosts.  After the actual SJVC Students got on to the floor to work with the animals we divide our students into 3 groups. In each 20 Minute rotation students were put through a learning demonstration.  The different areas were Dental, Contrast Study, Physical Exam, Jerry Dog Surgery, Scrub in Demo and finally, students dissected Owl Pellets. We were treated to a Pizza Lunch provided by SJVC. After lunch students completed a career questionnaire and we discussed the CAP Presentations and talked about possible FARMS Advanced opportunities.

Student Chuyeng Xiong said, “My favorite trip that I went on was to SJVC pet tech program because we got to see how the nurses perform x-rays on the animals and care for the pets. The practice routine examinations on the pets I found interesting but did not like to watch. Learning how to properly handle the lab equipment and lab samples were cool too.”
