Questions About Become A Veterinarian?
How Long Does It Take After Coming Fresh Out Of Highschool? What Degrees Do You Have To Get? What Is The Minimum Salary For Every Different Type Of Vet? Please Please Answer!!!! I Really Need Your Help!!! Thank You!!!

Out of high school it can take 2-4 years or more, but look into the schools you want to apply to, for example: Purdue has an early acceptance program where they accept high school seniors, see the section about it at the bottom of this page:
There is no degree that you "have" to get. Some people don't even have a degree and get in! Most people have degrees in Animal Science or Biology, but earning a degree that will give you a back up plan in case you don't get in to vet school can be helpful!
See the link in my sources for the Bureau of Labor information for salary information.

Here's a little bit more about becoming a veterinarian for you!

Most people who go to vet school have a bachelor's degree, but it is not required to get into vet school. There are only 28 veterinary schools in the country (There are also several international schools that are AVMA accredited) and entrance to these is highly competitive, so not having a bachelor's can make it more difficult.

The schools' requirements vary slightly, so look into the specific school you are interested in first- I have included a link in my sources to a descriptor page with requirements for each school. Most require biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, physics, math, and English. You can complete the courses you need at any college that offers them, including a community college if money is an issue. Schools also require a certain amount of experience with animals (having a pet does not count in this!) and experience working with a veterinarian. You will also need to take the GRE or MCAT before applying. This may seem like a lot, but the schools want to know you can handle the course load in vet school and know about the career. Tip: keep a record of your activities, hours, and honors- you can put things on your vet apps as far back as high school!

Where you apply depends a lot on where you live. Vet schools reserve a certain number of seats for students who are residents of the state the vet school is located in. This is where your best chance of being accepted is, but you can also apply to out of state schools. The Veterinary Medical College Application Service handles the main application. Most schools also have a supplemental application which you must get from the school itself. Most schools have interviews, but some do not.

Once you make it through the application process and are accepted, (yay!) the hard work begins. Veterinary school is four years. It is medical school, but for multiple species. Typically the structure is three years of classroom work and one year of clinical training. Each program is a little different, check into the individual schools' websites for more information. Making it through vet school is difficult. You will be in class for 8-9 hours each day during the week and will need to spend evenings and weekends studying. During clinical rotations you may be required to be at the hospital at all hours. You can also do an internship or residency after graduation to become more specialized.

Please also take cost into account when planning your undergraduate course work! The average vet student in 2010 graduated with about $130,000 in debt. Vet school tuition alone (this does not include books, room, board, and other expenses) ranges from the cheapest being $13,000 (North Carolina, in state students) to almost $60,000 (Ohio, out of state students) per year. The majority of financing is going to be in loans, which are all unsubsidized starting this year, so interest will be accruing while you are in school. There are not a lot of grants and scholarships for professional students the way there are for undergraduate students.

The average starting salary for a vet is between $43,000 and $71,000 depending on what area you are going in to. The median annual wage for veterinarians was $82,000 in 2010. Veterinarians have the worst debt to salary ratio of any of the professional school graduates (lawyers, physicians, dentists, pharmacists, etc,.) There are no veterinarians I know of who got into the career because they wanted to make lots of money. For more information on salary statistics and the career see the link to the Bureau of Labor information in my sources.

If you are still interested in becoming a veterinarian after reading all of this then fantastic! A good way to start getting a feel for the career is to call some local vets and ask if you could spend an afternoon shadowing them! There are also other careers with animals that you may not have considered that would be just as rewarding- I have put a link to a website about animal related careers in my sources, take a look at that!

Best of luck to you!!


Help Don'T Know About Veterinarian?
I Am Thinking Of Being A Vet But I Don'T Know How Much Schooling I Would Need Like What Do I Study Before I Go To Veterinary School Or Vet Tech School... And What Are Some Really Good Colleges? And The Pay And All The Different Types Of Veterinarians...

if you want to be a vet it is approximately 11 years of schooling and the cost would be approximately two hundred thousand dollars ... vet salaries vary quite significantly depending on where in the country you are, if you have any specialization (such as equine/large animal vet) ... the median salary would be about eighty thousand dollars ... there are only 28 veterinary colleges in the united states making it statistically harder to get into vet school than medical school which is why your marks would need to be competitive ...

if you want to be a vet tech, that is community college or career college and the wage upon completion would be starting about 14 to 19 dollars an hour ... - list of vet tech programs in the united states ... it is either a 2 or 4 year program ...

if you want to be a vet assistant, that would be the easiest ... sometimes you do not even need anything but a high school diploma ... the wage would be just a buck or two above minimum wage ... it might be a place to start to see if you like the field and being employed as an assistant would give you a leg up if you then intend to pursue more education in the field ...

Medical & Veterinary Students: If You Could Give One Piece Of Advice To Pre-Meds...?
I'M The Pre-Professional Faculty Advisor (Among Other Things) For A Large University, And Have Been Doing This For A Number Of Years, But It'S Always Good To Get A Fresh Perspective. If You Could Give One Piece Of Advice To Incoming First-Year Undergrads, What Would It Be? And Why? Thanks!

My husband is a fourth year medical student. (and studying for boards at the moment, so I'll answer this for him lol) There are two pieces of advice that I always hear him give to other students.

The one he gives to those still in college is this:
Have a life outside of the science building! Do theatre, sports, be involved in church or something! The things that were most concentrated on in his medical school interview were his extra-curricular activities. They wanted to know he was well rounded.

The advice he gives to first year medical students is the same that was given to him:
You can come out of medical school with straight A's, have no life and no family in residency OR you can do your best, have a life and your wife and kids will still be with you during and after residency. You may only have B's and C's with the second choice, but your family and your life will still be intact. And you will probably have a great residency spot to boot!

Does Anyone Have Opinions On The Vca Hospital Organization Of Veterinary Care?
The Vet Hospital I Have Taken My Cats And My Dog To Was Bought Up By Vca Hospitals About 18 Mos Ago. Does Anyone Have Experience With This Group? Or Opinions Good Or Bad. I Have Been Pretty Satisfied With The Care I Have Been Getting For My Dog By One Of The Drs. But Now A Little Leary Of The Care She Has Recently Been Getting....My Dog Is Very Sick With Swollen Lymph Nodes. She Was Treated Back In January With Antibiotics And Now The Swelling Is Back Again, Only Worse. We Took Her To The Pet Er Last Nite And When I Gave Them The Name Of Her Primary Vet Hospital, I Got Bad Vibes. I Have To Take Brandy There Tomorrow For Treatment And Want To Be Sure I Am Going To The Right Place For The Best Care. Thanks To Anyone Who Can Contribute Information...Especially Fellow Dog Lovers Who'S Pup Is A Member Of The Family Like My Brandy Is.

Ok well first of all VCA Hospitals are just as reputable if not more than local independent vets simply for the fact they have to follow the standards of the corporation and if the hospital is AAHA certified the regulations are even stricter so it is assumed that the quality of care is higher. Since all practicing Vets must be licensed it is really their style of treatment that may be in question. I have known many vets that to many people are great but I may feel they do not meet my standards. So I guess what I am saying is that if you don't feel your regular vet has your pets interest in heart go to one you and your pet are comfortable with. Just remember even the most skilled Dr. can not always catch and cure everything. I hope I have helped.

What Is The Solution When Large Numbers Of People Cannot Afford Veterinary Care For Their Pets?
It'S Pointless To Say &Quot;They Shouldn'T Have Pets If They Can'T Afford It&Quot;, As People Need Contact With Animals. Why Should Only Wealthy People Get To Have Pets? That Isn'T Fair. It Also Isn'T Fair To The Animals If They Don'T Get The Care They Need. What Is The Solution?

Many vets will treat animals on a 'payment plan' basis if you discuss it with them, and demonstrate you are a responsible pet owner just short of funds. I have done this very successfully in the past.

Nowadays, there are also several 'pet health fund' schemes which you can pay a monthly amount into and then, if your pet does require major treatment, most of the cost is covered.

Another option is that the RSPCA (in Australia) and some universities will offer various treatments performed by students for a much lesser rate.

The students are not 'beginners' but final year and new graduates, and are overseen by trained professionals, BUT there is always a risk.

Organisations such as the Cat protection Society (NSW) also offer subsidised veterinary care.

Recent newspaper articles have suggested that with increased apartment living and less 'leash free' open space available, many people are opting not to have pets these days, which is a real shame, as animals can be tremendously beneficial to people's health and mental wellbeing.

Perhaps local pounds could also offer some treatment 'clinics' or certain nights when discount treatment for simple matters could be offered?

I'll look forward to hearing other suggestions!

Cheers :-)
