How Far Away Is Your Veterinarian? Do You Have A 24-Hour Vet For Emergency?
It'S A 20 Minute Drive To My Vet. It Takes At Least 10 Just To Get Out Of My Neighborhood.
Mine is 10 minutes down the road. We have the pager number to 2 of the vets at the office if there is an emergency. It takes them 5 minutes to get to the office. So if anything happens we are all set. It's good to know how far you vet is from you this way you know your plan of action if something happens.

Diagnostic Medical Ultrasound A Good Major For Veterinary School?
So At One School I Am Looking At, They Offer Diagnostic Medical Ultrasound As A Major. Would This Be A Good Option If I Am Looking At Vet School? I Mean I Know I Will Also Have To Meet The Vet Schools Prerequisites, But Would This Be Good?
You have raised a very interesting question. I am going to discuss it on the premise that program you mentioned is a four-year program which leads to a bachelor's degree. A two-year associate program would not be appropriate as few, if any, of its credits would transfer to a university pre-vet program.
If you had asked about a four-year bachelor of science in nursing program, my answer would be that it is not an appropriate pre-vet major. Medical schools and presumably veterinary schools would consider your going on for a career other than nursing to be a waste of an educational experience and degree which could have been awarded to a person who would go on to become a nurse. They would hold the nursing degree against the applicant.
I cannot see any valid distinction between nursing and diagnostic sonography in this context. So my conclusion is that diagnostic sonography is not a good pre-vet major.
May I suggest animal science, chemical engineering, biological engineering, and biomedical engineering as pre-vet majors which will provide good preparation for veterinary school as well as good career opportunities, which will pay much more than diagnostic sonography, for the more than five out of seven veterinary school applicants nationwide who are not admitted to any veterinary school.
What Colleges Have A Great Veterinary/Medical Program?
In The U.S. Or Europe!
I'M Looking To Pursue A Veterinary Career Or A Medical/Nursing Career. Thanks In Advance! :)
First of all, those are three very different programs, and schools might only offer a few if any of them. Second, you must do your medical training in the country in which you live and plan to work. It does NOT easily transfer to another country. If you're not a US citizen, you can pretty much forget about med school here; most won't take foreign applicants.
You can major in nursing in college if you want to be a nurse. That's how you become a nurse. To be a doctor or a vet, you'd major in anything in college (but NOT nursing) and take the pre-med or pre-vet classes. Then you'd apply to medical or vet schools after college. Both are extremely competitive programs; going to a school for your bachelors doesn't mean you'll get in for med school. Sure, there are some great programs you could be applying to in 4-7 years, depending on where you are now. But most people are lucky to get into any program, since so many won't get in at all. You usually can't be picky.
When U Take Pre-Veterinary At A College Or University What All Do You Learn About? Is It A Requirement To Calculs Which Taking Pre-Vet Because I Didnt Take Calculs In High School?Will That Effect Me? Also How Long Would I Take Me To Be A Vet And Long Will It Take Me To Get My License??...Thanks!!!
Pre Veterinary programs consist of a lot of math and science courses, as well as the general requirements of the college (English, Foreign Language, Electives, etc.) If calculus is a prerequisite (I do not believe it is, as long as you completed the requirements for high school), the college will let you know and give you the opportunity to take classes or CLEP the course.
In order to be a DVM, you will attend college for 3-4 years and then attend veterinary school for 3-4 years. Once you complete your education, you can take the exam to get your license.
Veterinary school is HIGHLY competitive-there are few institutes in the country that offer this program of degree and more applicants than they have room for. I would look up the requirements of the college you wish to attend for pre-vet and also the requirements of the various schools that offer Veterinary degrees and be sure you are doing all that you need to-good grades, experience with animals, etc.
I wish you the best!
I Am Interested In Becoming A Vet Tech. When I Looked It Up Online Only A Few Schools Came Up As &Quot;Vet Tech&Quot; Schools. My Question Is, Do I Have To Go To A Vet Tech School And Major Specifically In Vet Tech Or Can I Go Somewhere Else And Just Major In Animal Sciences And Such, Or Even Pre-Vet? I Just Dont Like The College Options They Gave Me.... Also Are There Any Vet Techs Out There? What Dont/Do You Like About The Job? I Originally Wanted To Go All The Way And Be A Vet, But I Think Ill Settle To Be A Vet Tech For Now And Eventually If I Want, Go To Vet School For My Doctorate.
The requirements for being a veterinary technician vary from state to state, so without knowing what state you are in we can tell you if you have to get a degree in veterinary technology or if you could take an alternative route. However, in most states you must have a degree in veterinary technology from an American Veterinary Medical Association accredited program. This is because this sort of degree is required to take the National Veterinary Technician Exam. You can find a list of AVMA accredited schools here: http://www.avma.org/education/cvea/vette...
There are also AVMA approved distance education programs that will prepare you for taking the National Veterinary Technician Exam. You can find those programs as well through the AVMA website I liked above. But you must be working for a veterinarian or with a credentialed technician who is willing to mentor you to earn a degree through one of these programs.
To determine the requirements for being a veterinary technician in your state, contact the state veterinary medical or veterinary technician association. Or you can do a search for your state and "statutes & veterinary technician". Though looking up all the answers in your state laws and rules can be a real pain ;)
As for information about actually working in the profession, I started 20 years ago and I still love it. The hours can be long, the work very stressful and fast paced, or you can be just basically looking for ANYTHING to do on a given day. There are lots of frustrations in dealing with co-workers and pet owners, but you have frustrations in any job. Pay and benefits can also be quite low in most areas. You get the joy of actually making a difference in some animals' lives.
Besides just working in a veternary clinic, there are other options such as working in research, specialty practices, practice management, teaching, pharmaceutical companies, etc.
