The Veterinary Technology Program has been accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association since 1978. Graduates are eligible to become Registered Veterinary Technicians (RVT) in Texas. The program fulfills registration/licensure requirements for most other states.
Complete small and large animal facilities are located on about 200 acres adjacent to the main Cedar Valley College campus. Populations of dogs, cats, horses, cattle, goats, swine, and laboratory animals are maintained for hands-on learning under USDA specifications.
The Veterinary Technology Program is a hands-on learning experience. Students spend considerable time in laboratory activities learning the techniques that will be used in real life.
Social activities are also available. An active Veterinary Technician Student Association sponsors many events each year, including a barbecue and the annual Lancaster Christmas parade float contest.
