The University Livestock Veterinary Service provides routine herd health and medicine services to dairy clients, and a 24-hour amulatory service to local livestock owners. This unit of study will be facilitated within this service through a two-week, livestock and ruminant health focused practical experience. Veterinary student interns will be expected to participate in all facets of the clinic activities. Practical experiences in this unit of study will encompass the further development of problemsolving skills, clinical knowledge and acumen, and technical and commuication skills relevant to conditions found in ruminant species, as wellas laboratory diagnostic and pathophysiological considerations. Practical work will also provide students with important knowledge and experience in dairy production and animal welfare, and in the relationship between ruminant health and food quality and safety relevant to human populations.
