Penn Foster hosted a pet vaccination clinic at its Scranton headquarters Saturday, Oct. 19 in celebration of National Veterinary Technician Week.
The clinic offered rabies and distemper vaccines for cats and dogs. Dr. Amanda Teter, assistant director of the school’s veterinary technician program, administered a total of 125 vaccines to the pets of Penn Foster employees and faculty. In addition to Dr. Teter, other veterinary technician program staff members were present to assist and answer pet health-related questions.
Penn Foster’s accredited veterinary technician associate degree allows students to work toward their career goals at their own pace and gain real-world experience through practicums at animal hospitals, such as Penn Foster partner Banfield Pet Hospital, and veterinary practices.
