Thursday, July 6, 2017
UNH student with a cat in the PAWS clinic, part of the veterinary technology program has named UNH’s veterinary technology program the second best in the country. The ranking is based on the exceptional hands-on learning opportunities with both large and small animals offered to students.

The program is also distinguished by PAWS, a monthly clinic run by students under veterinary supervision that provides income-eligible owners with preventive veterinary services for their pets; an on-campus veterinary diagnostic laboratory that helps monitor and control important animal diseases and provides diagnostic services and information to various state agencies; and the ability to deliver the attention and small class size of a private school with all the benefits of a full university.
