Same here well for San leandro, I heard San Diego Mesa College have a good Animal Health Program. I work for the zoo and they told me with that degree you could do Veterinary Tech or a Zoo keeper(experience with exotic animals prefer).

On that note, Does anyone here know if Western Career College Vet Tech program is accredited? Is it worth 32k, well I just did the entrance exam and my test for my prereqs and manage to come down to 24k for the intuition with grants. My class won't start till July 19th, but I'm having my doubts. Did anyone graduated from here and have a problem finding a job?

Hi Samantha Lunn and xfxazknight. There are several options for northern and southern Cali. Samantha Lynn, you might check into your local community or junior college, or, since you are home-schooled, you could look into distance learning (although you will need to resource your own externship facility). xfxazknight, there are many schools in NoCal; San Leandro seems close to you.

Check out the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) site. It has good information about educational programs and professional opportunities:
