Best Vet Programs???
Which University/College Has The Best Vet Program In The U.S? Name As Many As You Can Think Of That Have The Best Vet Program.
Well there's only 26 in the country and they're all good!
That being said, Cornell, Colorado, Penn and UC Davis have all been consistently ranked at the top.
When you're applying to vet school it's really important to take into account other factors than their rankings because, frankly, they're all good and you're going to have a tough time getting into one, let alone the top school.
Many vet schools select students based largely on state residency. Some schools wont consider applicants from out of state, other's reserve 50-90% of their spots for in state applicants and 10 spots for applicants from the rest of the country.
Additionally, if you are a state resident of the state the school is in your tuition will be 10-20 THOUSAND dollars lower.
Other things that you need to keep in mind are that there is NO WAY you can meet ALL the prereqs for ALL the schools - so take the courses that interest you and apply to the schools that will accept those courses (although there are a few things you're gonna have to take: orgo, chem, physics, bio, genetics, microbiology, biochemistry, statistics, etc). Additionally, some schools require additional applications, application fees, or tests, so it is important to take that into account when applying too.
So there are several factors to consider other than ranking and I hope this helps!

Humane Home Euthanization Of Cat With Leukemia? Alternatives?
I Have A 9 Year Old Female Cat That Is Positive For Feline Leukemia. In The Last Year+ She Has Had Immune Problems With Display Of Hair Loss, Sores And Bloating. Incontinence Has Become An Issue And You Can Tell She Is Constantly Miserable Now.
I Am Trying To Come To Terms With Euthanizing Her. The Cost Here Is Prohibitive... $45 Office Visit + Shot + Disposal... And I Have A Problem With The Trauma Of Not Only Transporting, But The Whole Cold, Clinical Approach.
Is There Anything I Can Use At Home That Is Humane? I Would Prefer To Provide A Quiet And Loving Atmosphere In Which To End Her Suffering... Something Effective, But Painless And Quick.
Any Alternative To This Approach Is Also Appreciated. I Have Very Little That I Am Able To Spend, But If Someone Has Had Luck With Changes In Diet, Antibiotics Or Other Treatment, I Am Open To Trying Any Suggestion Over Euthanization!
I'm sure there are ways to do at home euthanization, but personally I would be afraid I would do more harm in not doing it right, than good in having it done correctly. That's just me though.
Would your vet be willing to come to the house to euthanize? Is there a mobile veterinary service that might be able to do it at your home? When I was contemplating the same problem as you, I got the name of Vet on Wheels (I got the card from my vet's office). When I called the doctor, she was so nice and comforting and assured me that when she would be needed, she would come to the house. I didn't care about the charge which I knew was going to be expensive, just the fact that although I wasn't her client, she was compassionate enough to offer to do what needed to be done at home for me. But my cat passed before needing her services.
This is the hardest decision....I understand where you're coming from. I often wished that my beloved pets would just go to sleep in their favorite spot and not wake up so that I wouldn't have to make this decision. But it never seems to work out that way, does it?
I know having this done in your vets office seems cold and clinical to us. But a good vet will allow you to be with your pet, will make you both as comfortable as possible and will do this quickly, yet with compassion. It takes a matter of moments from beginning to end, although for us it will seem like a lifetime. Their way is effective, painless and quick. A compassionate doctor will also allow you to take your animal home for a personal burial or cremation if possible.
The wellbeing of your pet is first and foremost in your heart, I can tell. If she's suffering and becoming incontinent, that's very stressful for her as cats are basically clean animals. And I'm sure she knows she's doing something that she shouldn't be doing (going outside her litter box). It might be getting close to the time for her to leave you to go where there's no more pain.
Check around and see if you can't find a mobile veterinary service that would be willing to come to you, or perhaps speak with your vet and see if he/she would be able to do this favor for you. I have a close relationship with my vet (who is also my employer), as I've been taking my animals to him for over 30 years, so I don't feel bad asking for a favor now and then.
Prayers go out to you both.........
Where Can I Find Equine Vets In Maine?
Hey Ok We Rescued 3 Horses And They All Got Their Feet Done Today And Now We Need A Vet For Them, We Have Been Looking Everywhere But Cant Seem To Find One Fairly Close By, I Live In Bowdoinham Maine, We Are Trying To Find A Vet In The Areas Of Or Close To Bowdoinham, Bowdoin, Litchfield, Topsham, Brunswick, Richmond.... Hope Someone Could Help Me Out, If You Live By And Know Of An Equine Vet, Or Are A Vet Lol, Or Know A Site Where I Can Find A Vet That Would Be Great, Your Friend, Trish
Well, I live in Rural Maine and know of vets here, but not southern Maine. Try this- call Hearts and Horses (they are in Buxton, next town over from Gorham) and find out who they use for a vet. I volunteered there for a few weeks while I was in college and everyone working there is very nice. I'm sure they'd be glad to help. Email me if you want the number.
Also, through google I found a vet in Turner, which is sort of near Lewiston, they might have an idea of local vets, as well. http://www.turnervetservice.com/
ADD- found this list, too. Try some of these.

I Will Be A Junior In High School In August And Was Wondering What I Could Do. I Have Taken All Animal Related Classes In My School And I Am Planning On Taking Vet Med 1 Where We Learn Everything, Then In Senior Year I Will Be In Vet Med 2 Which I Will Be A Certified Vet Assistant By Then. Really Exciting! I Will Also Be Taking Advanced Animal Science As A Senior For A 4Th Science. I Just Want To Know All The Different Kinds Of Opportunities I Can Take To Get As Much Experience Possible. Can I Volunteer At A Vet Clinic? Or Care For Animals Somewhere? Is There A Camp I Can Go To? Thank You!!
1) Do really well in school (including college) ABOVE ALL ELSE!!!!!!!!! Getting into veterinary school is statistically harder than getting into human medical school. There are only 30 (2 just opened up in 2014) veterinary schools in the USA and 2 in the Caribbean (all 32 schools are AVMA accredited, so they are all "equal"). Only 10% of veterinary applicants get accepted each year vs 15% human medical school students.
2) You're doing well for now, not much you can do in high school aside from getting experience.
3) Shadow a veterinarian on the weekends or after school. I suggest shadowing a small animal vet (mainly dogs and cats) and a large animal vet (horses, cows, goats, sheep, etc). Do one vet for a quarter or semester and then another for the other. I would find as many vets to contact as you can because not all like having people shadow them. Shadowing vets will show you what their job is like and help you out later when you need a Letter of Recommendation for Vet School. In vet school, you mainly learn about cats, dogs, horses, cattle, sheep, pigs, goats, sometimes chickens/parrots, and sometimes camelids (alpacas, camels, llamas). So the more experience you have with each species, the better. You learn about each species in school but, once you graduate you can chose to work at a small animal or large animal practice. Some vets work in mixed practices and work with all species.
4) You can volunteer with a vet, if they let you. I would try and get a job with a vet if you can (once you feel comfortable, I'd say after you've done some shadowing). You could work after school or during the summers as a veterinary assistant (that is what I did when in undergrad). Whatever you do, keep your grades up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
5) Study either biology or animal science in undergrad. I recommend going to undergrad at a school that has a veterinary school. Example: I studied biology in undergrad at Iowa State University, then applied to their vet school when it was time to do that. I ended up at a Caribbean school (Ross University), but that is a different story.
6) In undergrad, I would strongly suggest biology as a major, but take some animal science courses if you can. What prepares you best for vet school are upper level biology courses in physiology, anatomy, virology, etc. Animal science courses like animal reproduction, animal nutrition, etc are very helpful in preparing/applying for/to vet school.
7) Volunteer some time at local shelters, stables, or barns if you can't work or can only shadow with a vet.
8) You need about 500 hours worth of experience with animals to be a strong applicant for vet school. By the time you apply (4-5 years from now), if you start now, you'll easily have over 500 hours. Make a log of every time you shadow or volunteer and have a vet, vet tech, or manager sign off that you were there. This will help you when applying to vet school and networking for the future. It's proof that you did the experience you did. If you get a job as a vet assistant, keep your pay stubs as they are also proof that you have experience.
9) Study really hard to get into a good college program and study hard in college
10) Study hard.
11) Did I tell you to study hard?
12) One last time, study hard.
Best of luck. Get as much experience as you can for now and ask veterinarians as many questions as you can. The more you're exposed to, the easier vet school will be. Trust me.
Job As A Marine Mammal Veterinarian?
I've Always Wanted To Be A Vet, I Have The Grades For It, I Love Science And Math, And I Would Love To Work With Mammals Such As Seals, Dolphins, Whales, Etc...
I'm Writing A Paper On It For My Modern Media Class And Needed A Few Questions Answered.
I'm Looking For Websites That Have Information On Becoming A Marine Mammal Vet, I Need To Know Salary, School Requirements, Colleges, Etc.... Also Things Like Where It's Best To Live (Obviously Near The Ocean, But Like Florida, California Etc...
Thanks For The Help, The More Websites About It The Better Chance Of Getting Best Answer, I Need Citations.
To become a Marine Mammal Veterinarian, you need as much experience working with animals, or vets, as you can (marine mammals preferred); go to college to take care of pre-vet requirements; go to vet school (one that at least has a teaching hospital for exotic animals, and/or one that has a residency/internship/externship with marine mammals); after vet school see about an internship, get an advanced degree, or find a job.
Salary of a Marine Mammal Veterinarian, I'm not sure. You should probably try to contact a Marine Mammal Veterinarian and ask them.
- for a college? varies form college to college. Look at the schools websites and/or college catalogs for school requirements, degrees, and what courses you need to take for the degree.
- for a job? depends on where you want to work and what they are looking for from an applicant. Experience, a degree(s) relating to the job, Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree, where you had your internship, letters of recommendation, conferences you have attended, clubs you've been in, associations you are in, etc.
To get into a vet school you don't necessarily need to do a pre-vet program. You just need to meet the requirements of the vet school you choose to attend. Some degress: Marine Biology, Animal Science, Zoology, Pre-Vet, etc.
best place to live? Where ever your job is. ;-p It don't necessarily need to be near an ocean (though there are probably more jobs near one), you can work anywhere there are marine mammals and they need a veterinarian. Zoos, Aquariums, Marine Parks, Marine Animal Rescues, the Navy, etc
Here are some websites. Good Luck.
How to become a marine mammal veterinarian:
To become a marine mammal veterinarian, follow the basic curriculum and schooling of other veterinarians, but try to gain practical experience with marine mammals by volunteering at an oceanarium or zoo. A few veterinary schools are developing specialized course work in the area of exotic animal medicine, including marine mammals. For more information, contact the American Veterinary Medical Association and the International Association for Aquatic Animal Medicine.
How Do I Get Into Aquatic Animal Medicine?
Advice and words of wisdom compiled and adapted from various responses by various IAAAM Board Members…
Welcome to the wonderful world of aquatic animal medicine! Just by asking your question you have joined a diverse group of people with interests in better understanding and caring for the oceans, lakes, rivers, streams and ponds that cover over 70% of our globe’s surface and the countless creatures that inhabit them. Humankind has left tire tracks on the planet Mars in our search for water- - the most essential nutrient. And the Hubble telescope has given us glimpses of the far reaches of space and time- - but we have yet to visit the deepest realms of the earth’s most precious aquatic environs. So keep asking those questions and enjoy the ride. Even the Hubble has been visited by an IAAAM member - a marine mammal veterinarian turned astronaut. Who knows where the journey may take you?
Unfortunately, there probably is no straight-forward or typical answer to achieving a career in aquatic or marine mammal medicine. First, no veterinary college has a comprehensive program for specializing in aquatic or marine mammal medicine. Most veterinary colleges (which is typically four years of dog, cat, cow, and horse medicine) sometimes have a sprinkling of non-domestic species classes that may include poultry, pet birds, lab animals, pocket pets, amphibians, reptiles, fish and sometimes marine mammals. After graduation the options are numerous, and include additional graduate work in fish or marine mammal medicine, private practice, or even a job at a facility with aquatic animals (though rarely does a new veterinary graduate get this type of position right away).
Another option is to gain a year or two of hands-on private practice, and then apply for one of the internships in aquatic medicine that are available at a variety of facilities across the country. These include internships at places such as the National Aquarium in Baltimore (marine mammal, amphibians and fish), Mystic Aquarium (marine mammal and fish), Florida Aquarium (marine mammal and fish), The California Marine Mammal Center (all marine mammal), Delta Extension and Research Center (mainly catfish), or Prince Edward Island University in Canada (mostly fish and shellfish), etc.
In the mean time, we would suggest that you get as much education and practical experience along the way as possible. This might involve volunteering at aquariums, rehabilitation facilities, research labs, or aquatic animal facilities.
Finally, you may find useful the following publication put out by the U.S. Government (in print and on the Web) which gives lots of information on the future of particular careers and includes salary projections. Keep in mind that there will be listings for generic titles such as marine biologist or veterinarian, but very specific titles are not listed. This resource is usually kept in the Reference collection of all libraries. It's called the "Occupational Outlook Handbook". The Web version (and a quarterly update) is located at http://stats.bls.gov/ocohome.htm)
Q. I am researching a career in marine veterinary medicine. I was wondering if you have any information on this career?
A. The field of marine or aquatic veterinary science is certainly an exciting and growing field! We are in the process of profiling an aquatic vet on our website. Check out the following links to explore more about the field, colleges that offer programs to prepare students for this field, and professional organizations for aquatic veterinarians.
If you wish to do your own web searches, I'm sure you'll find even more sites. Search for veterinary science or aquatic animals science.
