UC Davis Field Day

Daisy Pierson, Julie Sarmiento, Melissa Ramirez and Alexis Vasquez traveled to UC Davis Field Day to compete in the Vet Science Contest. The Veterinary Science Career Development Event (CDE) provides opportunities for participants to develop technical knowledge and demonstrate practical skills in the field of veterinary science.

For example, CDE helps effectively prepare the students for the expectations of animal health care and services (Veterinary Hospitals/Clinics, Grooming Facilities, Pet Stores, Kennels/Boarding Facilities, and Feed Stores) workplace. 

Workers seeking careers in the animal health care field must develop a high degree of knowledge, skill and ability to solve difficult problems. This event blends the testing of skills and knowledge required for careers in the animal science career pathway.
