APSU to offer Veterinary Technology Program

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Love of animals led Kaitlyn Peltier to own and train horses, but that same love also instilled in Peltier a desire to work in a veterinary office. She had a difficult choice to make.

She wanted to help animals, but she didn’t see herself trying to get into one of the country’s few, highly competitive veterinary schools. So, she had to choose—stay in Clarksville and continue to care for her horses, or leave her beloved animals and enroll in a veterinary technology program hours away from her home.
