You’ve loved and cared for animals since you were young. You want to help them live long and healthy lives. With Post University’s equine veterinary assistant program, you can prepare to pursue a career in an equine veterinary practice, where you will support the veterinarian in treating and healing horses. Our specialized classes and practical learning opportunities in Connecticut allow you to build a solid understanding of the daily concerns of the equine practitioner and gain experience in the field even before you graduate.

Our equine veterinary assistant program explores the variety of roles and responsibilities typically performed by an equine veterinary assistant. These include clerical and office procedures, client contact, patient handling and restraint, pharmacy and inventory management, technical and surgical preparation and assistance, nursing care, laboratory specimen preparation, and assistance with common diagnostic imaging modalities. Core coursework includes:

  • General Biology I and Lab
  • General Biology II and Lab
  • Medical and Scientific Terminology
  • Pharmacology
  • Equine Veterinary Assisting
  • Equine Medical Management

Upon completion of our equine certification program, you will have the opportunity to get hands-on experience with equine veterinarians and technicians in a semester-long internship.

At Post University, we go above and beyond to equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to be a successful equestrian veterinary assistant. Our commitment to your professional goals begins the moment you enroll. You will be assigned an academic advisor — who will address your challenges and answer any questions — and work with our Equine Program Director to ensure you’re making the most of your equine education.
