Wet/Dry Labs

The intent of SCVECCS club sponsored labs is to allow club members the opportunity to gain experience in veterinary emergency and critical care techniques that are either not offered in the curriculum or are important for emergency practice. It is our hope that each member will not only enjoy the hands on experience, but also learn a great deal. We continue to express our sincere appreciation to the corporations, faculty, and staff that make SCVECCS wet labs possible.
