The Kansas State University Veterinary Health Center provides veterinary preventive and specialty care to some 17,000 animals every year, and the facility has advanced technology comparable to that in human hospitals. Veterinary students are involved in the process as clinicians teach while attending to patients, according to veterinarian Susan Nelson. "The students examine the patient and make the diagnosis, present plans to remedy the problem, and then we go over it with them. A veterinarian always signs off on the orders," Dr. Nelson said.
