Veterinary science is a branch of medicine concerned with the health of animals and the treatment of disease or injuries that affect them. It takes much more than just the love of animals to succeed in the veterinary field! The 4-H Veterinary Science Program offers real-world science-related career exploration for youth between the ages of 5 and 19.
