Career Questions About Veterinarians?
After Graduating From Vet School How Long Does It Take To Become A Veterinarian?
You finally have an edge on medical doctors after finishing school. Internship and residency isn't a requirement, you can become a practicing vet right out of school, but you can still choose to pursue them.
"For those veterinarians who wish to gain more experience or become board-certified in a specific field of medicine or surgery, they can go on to complete an internship and/or a residency in their chosen area of interest."
It's funny how it's actually easier to get into med school than vet school. I think the main reason is that there's so many more med schools, so it's more competitive.
Questions About A Veterinarian...?
Ok I Have A Few Questions..
1. If I Were To Be A Veterinarian, What College Courses Do You Recommend For Me?
2. Are There Different Types Of Veterinarians...?
3. What Positions Of Jobs Could You Get At Your Local Vet.?
Thanks To All Who Try To Help! (10 Points On The Line!)
1. The college courses required will depend on the vet school you are wanting to go to. It will be a lot of chemistry, biology, and physics as well as basics like english, social sciences, public speaking. It takes 4 years to get your bachelor's degree and then 4 years of vet school (not 8 like the previous answerer said). Go to the website of the vet school you're planning to attend and look up the required courses for admission that is what you'll need to take. In addition to those, you will need to choose a degree granting major. Biology, and animal science are popular because they overlap with the pre-vet requirements but it can be in anything.
2. There are many many types of veterinarians.
General practitioners are the ones that most people think of. They do routine care, such as vaccinations, routine surgeries, etc. They can be classified based on the type of animals they work on (small animal, large animal, mixed, exotics). Most of these vets did their 4 years of vet school and went straight into practice.
Then there are specialists. These would include radiologists, dermatologists, oncologists, surgeons, etc. These vets did a 1 year internship and a 3 year residency after finishing vet school and then passed an additional board exam in their specialty. Most of them are employeed by referal clinics, and universities and they aren't usually primary care doctors.
There are also vets that do research, teach, work for the army or the government. Many of the ones that teach and do research hold PhDs in addition to their DVMs.
Most vets will probably hire you for front office work or kennel work. Definitely mention you're looking into vet med as a career. If no one is hiring definitely see if you can shadow, because that will get you minimal experience (and hopefully lead to a job later). Practical veterinary experience is extremely important to vet schools during admissions so start that asap.
How Much Does Dog Seizure Medicine Cost?
My Dog Has Siezures. About 1 A Week. We Got Her Recently From Someone. Does The Medicine Make Them Fat? Ive Heard That.
My dog had seizures and the medicine was only like $20 a month. I think it depends on the medicine though. You should take the dog to the vet and make sure there isn't something really seriously wrong with it before you get too attached to it.
People Who Have Gotten There Dog Neutered?
Im Planiing On Getting My Dog Neutered At The Spca Because Its A Low Cost Clinic Becasue I Cant Really Afford It Well I Was Wondering What Happens After U Get Ur Dog Neuter , Does His Attitude Change
How Was The Expierence Did U Like It??
His attitude will improve.
Read this excerpt:
First of all, a neutered dog and spayed dog has a longer life span as they are healthier and happier. Neutered dog will not be vulnerable to testicle cancer correspondingly spayed female dog will not be susceptible to ovarian cancer. Thus reduce the probability of getting breast cancer. Besides, neutered dog and spayed dog urine odor is not as strong as non-neutered dog.
Neutered and spayed dog live happier? How does this happen? In fact, dogs and humans are the same. Emotion is affected by the hormone in our body. Neutered or spayed dog can live happier as their hormone levels are being controlled and no mood swing occurred!
Apart from that, dogs after neutering will become less aggressive (due to the absent of male hormone) toward human or their peers. This will reduce the probability of male dog marking their territory when staying inside the house or when visiting new places. Neutered dog will be less likely to roam searching for their mate and will stay calm in the house. This will reduce the likelihood of getting into an accident too.
What Would This Veterinary Job Be Called?
I Want To:
Care For Rescues
Caring for rescues would not necessarily be a job, many people do this out of their homes fostering animals..unless you work for the pound or a dog rescue for a specific breed (most of these are volunteer positions..no pay is involved). What KIND of research/animal study? Would you study animal disease, animal husbandry, animal psychology, animal populations, wildlife management, endangered species, genetics, etc. etc. Your question it too vague to know for sure what kind of a career you are asking about.

Help With Deciding On Veterinary Job?
I'M Not Going To College Any Time Soon But I Am Prepared To Go As Much As 8 Years In College In Order To Get My Dream Occupation.
I Want To Work As A Veterinarian. But I Want To Specialize In Bones. I Want To Shift The Placement Of Bones And Put On Casts. You Get The Point. Like I Want To Look At X-Rays And Determine Problems And I Want To Give Checkups To The Animals I'M Fixing. Is There A Specific Name For This Type Of Veterinarian. If So, Could You Give Me Any Other Information On It?
When I Get Older I Really Want To Work In This Area. The Sight Of Blood Doesn'T Make Me Gag At All And I Can Deal With Animals In Pain. The Best Part About Being A Vet Is That You Can Fix Them Up And Make Them Happy Again :)
It sounds like you want to be an equine surgeon specializing in bone. You first need to get your veterinary degree (4 yrs undergrad usually, 4 yr vet degree) and then do a minimum of 3 yr surgery residency.
You may also consider a sports medicine specialty.
The hardest part of all this is getting into vet school- I figured out the statistics when I applied, and you have a 2% chance of getting into one of the 28 US veterinary colleges.
What you need: excellent grades- over a 3.75 preferred, but 3.5s have been accepted when the sciences only grades were higher.
Lots and lots of animal experience- work with horses now, cleaning stalls, riding lessons, etc. Volunteer at a humane society, ride along with vets, get a kennel assistant job (any animal experience helps get into vet school, though pets don't count). The more animal experience you have, no matter what the type, will greatly increase your chances of getting into vet school.
