"The Life Sciences (Biological and Agricultural) major with a specialization in Animal Health and Disease provided me with a strong foundation before entering the Faculty of Veterinarian Medicine at the University of Montreal. I had the opportunity to work with dairy cattle at Macdonald Campus Farm, participate in pre-vet clubs, and follow directly relevant courses. At Mac, you are surrounded by students that are interested in a similar subject which makes for an excellent learning environment. When you get into vet school, you will see all the true value of the courses and experiences you gathered while at Mac!"

- Tiffany Gabriel-Bellantoni, DVM graduate from the Université de Montréal

"Deciding to study at McGill in the Animal Health and Disease Specialization was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. I received an amazing education and it set me up to attend one of the best veterinary schools in the world. Transitioning from Mac to the University of Edinburgh’s veterinary school, R(D)SVS, seemed daunting, but once I got there, I realized that the in-depth knowledge that I gained at McGill complemented my veterinary program perfectly. The classes that I took at McGill, especially the lab-based and farm-based classes, gave me a strong foundation for veterinary school in both knowledge and practical skills. I feel extremely thankful to the faculty at both McGill and R(D)SVS for helping me to have such a smooth transition and providing me with an exception educational experience."
