I especially like that you had photographs along with the content. The video clips were very helpful as a learning aid. The course was well organized and written in a style that was easy to understand. The course content was excellent. It was a convenient, interesting, and fun course. The case histories and examples from your practice gave an insight into a vet’s world. Thanks for a great experience.

This course offered much more information than I expected. This is a great course for pet owners, breeders and for anybody who is working with animals. All the questions on the discussion board were answered quickly and professionally. Thank you Dr. Jeff!

I enjoy the lessons so much and it gave me great insight into the practical tasks in a veterinary clinic. With the concise explanation, pictures and videos, it makes the learning process even easier. This course has really encourage me to further my interest in veterinary science. Thanks Jeff!

The course definitely covered many topics. I liked how the instructor explained everything very clearly. Sometimes textbook explanations are very confusing. The pictures were great, to better explain certain topics. I really gained a lot from this course. Dr. Grognet is a very good instructor. I look forward to taking another course of his soon. I like his style of teaching.

This is the third class I have taken with Dr. Jeff and I have been extremely pleased with all three. I plan to go on to be a vet tech and I feel they have been a great asset in helping to prepare me for my career. He makes the material interesting and the lessons enjoyable. I would definitely recommend his classes to others.

Excellent course! The course material was very organized and contained so much good information! Dr. Jeff also made it fun to learn with picture matches, crossword puzzles, and short video clips. I took the course as a pet owner (rather than a vet assistant employee) and found the information invaluable. Dr. Jeff is an excellent instructor and I would definitely another one of his classes.

I strongly recommend this course to anyone seeking a career in this field! There is so much information that I have taken from this course that will help me better understand my position as an assistant!

This course has been a very helpful tool for gaining knowledge and learning important and valuable information. For the pet owner who wants to know more about their little or big four legged family member, or someone who is pursuing a career in the veterinary field, this course has it covered. I feel much more confident about being a knowledgeable and responsible pet owner. I'm also on my way to realizing my goal of one day working as an assistant. Thank you!

This was a fantastic course. I really enjoy the style of the instructor, Dr. Grognet. He has a great way of teaching, with a good balance of intensity and humor to lighten the depth of the topics. The content of the lessons was informative, well-paced, and the activities were fun to complete at the end of each chapter. My questions were answered almost immediately and thoroughly through the discussion group postings. I found the explanations to my questions helpful in my learnings as I continued to work through the course. Overall, I found this course and others I have taken with Dr. Grognet to be really interesting and helpful in my pursuit of a second career working with animals in a veterinary hospital setting. I recommend that others take these courses if they are interested, involved pet guardians or if they are pursuing a career in animal health. Thank you.

Jeff and his teaching assistant were wonderful, warm, personable, and responsive. Even though this course was online and provided no actual personal interaction, I always felt that they were there for me for support and when I had questions. I very much enjoyed this course. I love Jeff's assignments - the crossword puzzles and other interactive activities.
