Graduate Jocelyn Schlachter is not one to back down from a challenge - and she definitely succeeded here at Stautzenberger!  Jocelyn knew she wanted to go into our Veterinary Technician program because she had always been around animals and loved them.  Her grandma encouraged her to enter the field, and she wasted no time - coming to Stautzenberger directly after high school.  We are proud of the hard work she completed while she was here!

What you Learn in our Veterinary Technician Program

During the program to receive her Associate’s degree, Joceyln took classes that were both for a general education degree like Introduction to Psychology and Written Communication.  She also took classes to increase her specialized knowledge in Veterinary science with classes like Husbandry and Disease of Large and Small Animals, Laboratory & Exotic Animal Medicine, and Principles of Anesthesia and Surgery.  In these classes, you will learn:

  • An overview of the history and science of Psychology
  • Introduction to beginning essays and shorter written works
  • The basics of husbandry, disease and immunology in first large then small animals
  • An introduction to the laws and care governing exotic animals
  • Correct usage of pre-, intra- and postsurgical anesthesia in animals
  • Correct care and procedures  for pre-, intra- and postsurgery for animals
