Did you know that Michigan 4-H is a program of Michigan State University Extension? Did you also know that Michigan State University has one of the best veterinary medicine programs in the whole country? MSU‘s veterinary medicine program is difficult to get into. But you might give yourself a leg up on the competition if you participate in 4-H veterinary science projects.
Even if becoming a veterinary isn’t your goal, there are still so many great reasons that participating in a 4-H veterinary science project could be right for you.
The health of animals influences a great many things. Because some diseases are transmitted to humans through animals, their health can affect ours. In a 4-H veterinary science project, you can explore the broad scope of veterinary medicine and animal health. You’ll also learn how animal management and feeding affect animal health.
For more information on how to get involved as a youth or volunteer, contact your county MSU Extension office or:
