Hands-on Veterinary Technology Training at CMC

At CMC, Vet Tech students gain real-life experience handling large and small animals at a farm right on campus

The farm provides opportunities not found at most Veterinary Technology programs, especially training for large animals.

The farm population averages 75 animals. You’ll care for horses, cattle, sheep, llamas and the usual assortment of turkeys, chickens, dogs and cats. A collection of exotic, laboratory and wild animals provides unusual veterinary care situations. You can care daily for owls, eagles, lizards, tortoises and hawks.

The Colorado Animal Rescue (CARE) shelter located adjacent to the farm provides high-quality care for animals awaiting adoption. This offers additional opportunities for students to learn how to care for these animals and operate a humane shelter. You can also get additional certification in Animal Shelter Management.
