    • Students are not permitted to administer any drug or vaccine that is legally available only by prescription to any animal except under the supervision/direction of an SVM faculty member or a veterinarian approved by a recognized regulatory body with consent to mentor students.
    • Students in violation of any of the policies outlined above will be subject to disciplinary action, which may include dismissal.
