    Yes, consider veterinarian buildings as hospitals for animals, kennels as hotels for animals, and the air is treated in similar way for each. Even the materials will be similar for cleanability and safety to provide sterile working environments (animals don't clean up after themselves as good as humans do, most of the time anyways). Many animals remain outdoors (horses, cows, large birds, etc.) so the facility may provide connected outdoor areas that are covered for rain protection but not conditioned. Remember, people will be doing the majority of the work in these facilities, so the buildings need function effectively for human use as well.

    Unless a test question specifically says a fully enclosed space is not conditioned, I would assume the area will be using some type of HVAC system because that is what they are testing your knowledge on.
