This course will give you the basics of veterinary terminology, starting with root words and suffixes and working up to body systems, medical procedures, and lab terminology. All of the words and abbreviations are those that are standard, defined through veterinary medical boards, AAHA, and the AVMA. Your practice may have additional terminology or abbreviations that you will need to learn. This is not an “all-inclusive” course, as in most cases, you don’t need to know ALL of the terms that are used in a veterinary practice. This course will expose you to the most common ones.
