Course Objectives: VT 101 is organized to give the student the basic clinical skills
needed to handle and restrain cats and dogs safely and efficiently. Students will
become proficient in the proper procedures for physical exams, restraint, venipuncture
and medicine administration. 70% is the lowest passing grade. Students will be
expected to rotate partners, teams, and animals in lab. Cell phones and other electronic
devices should be turned off for both lecture and lab. Photography is not allowed unless
discussed with instructor first.
Students with disabilities who believe they may need academic adjustments, auxiliary
aids or services to fully participate in course activities or meet course requirements are
encouraged to register with the Access and Disability Services (ADS) Office, Room
300K in the Cascade Building. You may also call the ADS Office to make an
appointment to meet with the ADS Coordinator at (253) 964-6526 or 964-6527.
Emergency Procedures: For life-threatening emergencies call 911 and then Campus
Safety. In the event of an emergency evacuation, gather all personal belongings and
leave the building using the nearest safe exit. Be prepared to be outside for a minimum
of an hour and stand a minimum of 200 feet from any building or structure. Do not
attempt to re-enter the building until instructed. Should a class be cancelled, it is your
responsibility to keep up on reading, homework, and deliverable assignments.
Attendance: Tardiness or coming to lab unprepared will result in a deduction of 25
points. No make up tests or quizzes will be given unless a valid excuse is discussed
with the instructor BEFORE the exam.
