What does it take to become a veterinarian?

Sunday, November 7, 2010

vet-animalIf you’re thinking of becoming a veterinarian, be prepared for years of schooling. If you are seriously considering this career, ask yourself if you are interested in animals and the natural world and do you do well in biology classes?  If the answers to these questions are yes, then study hard and consider interning for a local veterinarian. Admission to a veterinarian school is very competitive as there are fewer than sixty such schools in the country. After you graduate, there are lots of possible career paths that you could take.  Anywhere you find animals, you’ll find vets.  You’ll find them at zoo’s to movie sets.  In addition to working in a clinic or in private practice, a veterinarian could choose to work in the bio technology field. You may be interested in working on developing new pet medication and choose a research career in a lab. Maybe you would prefer working in public health or in animal shelters. Whatever you do, be prepared to study long and hard but the rewards outweigh the work involved in getting there.
