Preveterinary Medicine and Animal Sciences

You love animals. You were the kid who brought home every stray dog and cat you could carry, who rescued bird nests from the rain gutters, who never forgot to feed the fish. 4-H was your life. Some of your best memories are of the state fair where you won your first blue ribbon for the lamb you raised. If you have an aptitude for science, if you're interested in learning about animals in their environments, or would like to work with international experts in animal science and ecology, consider Iowa State's world-renowned programs. We have the resources to help you become your best.
