Dedicated Vets are Priceless
Prepare yourself for veterinary school at A&M-Commerce. Through the pre-veterinary medicine concentration, you'll be able to explore and develop knowledge in animal science, nutrition, physiology and other vital information you can use as you continue your studies and later work in the field. Along with specific topics around livestock and domestic animals, you'll also have opportunities to expand your public speaking, analytical and scientific writing skills.
This class will introduce you to the structure and function of organ systems with special reference to domestic animals.
You will become familiar with the functions of carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, lipids, minerals and water, as well as with the chemistry and physiology of digestion, absorption, and metabolism of nutrients and their metabolites in animals.
This course offers you a preliminary study of the selection, reproduction, nutrition and marketing of beef and dairy cattle, swine, sheep, horses and poultry.

When I originally came to A&M-Commerce, I wanted to develop state and national park education programs, but I have changed that goal to research. My degree in wildlife and conservation science fits well with both goals and the faculty are always opening my eyes to new opportunities and careers that I could explore.
