The Snohomish FFA Veterinary Science team is ramping up for the busy season of competitions! First up is the district meet at Ferndale High school on March 15th. This year’s focus is on “Fear Free” feline medicine and will also address the issue of coping with student loan debt. In addition, students will be quizzed on medical terminology, breed identifications, veterinary tools and general knowledge of the veterinary industry. This is a highly competitive event and after the fact, the team of four will then compete at the Washington State FFA Convention in May to earn state honors.

Back in the classroom, the Animal Biology students are busy covering the subjects of genetics, probability and Punnett squares, before segueing into DNA as the students then explore the domestication of dogs, horses and other livestock. Well done, all!
