1. You should try to get at least a 3.5, but nothing below that. You cant make anything less than a C in your prereqs, but A's are what will get you in, especially in math and science
2. Vet school is more competitive than med school because there are less vet schools. It is even harder for a female to get into vet school, because about 75% of applicants are female
3. YES! Take any anatomy, physiology, and other sciences you can while you are in high school to better prepare for college. Also get a job at a vet clinic, this kind of experience is not only helpful, but required in most schools. Also, get into programs like FFA, 4-H, etc.
4. There are many= large animal, small animals, exotic, specialty
5. Mostly live
6. Small animal exclusive can make a good amount of money, mixed practices can make some, and large animal vets make the least, unless they are in a big equine area (NY, KY, etc.)
7. Figuring out what is wrong with an animal when they can't tell you a thing and saving their life
8. Dealing with ignorant owners
This may seem like alot of work and a hard path, but if you start now, you will be ready
Questions About Veterinarian School?
I Am A Sophomore So I Started Thinking About What College I Will Enter. I Have A Lot Of Stuff I Would Like To Become But The Most Is A Veterinarian. But I Still Have A Lot Of Questions About It.
Approximately, How Many Years Would It In College?
What Do U Have To Deal With ?
Do U Chose A Specific Profession Like Equine Vet Or Do U Learn Everything About All Animals?
I Don'T Freak Out From Reptiles Or Amphibians But I Really Cant Stand Insects And Spiders And All The Creepy Crawlies. Do U Learn About Them? And If U Do, Is There A Chance To Skip Learning About Insects And Spiders?
I Generally Love Animals And Nature Is There Any Other Animal/Environmantal-Related Careers And Professions?
Thank You A Lot!
It's 4 years of undergraduate work and 4 years of vet school. Vet school is very competitive to get into and you must get very good grades to even stand a chance. You will also need plenty of veterinary experience before you apply. Once in it's a lot of hard work. You're in class pretty much all day and so your evenings and weekends will be pretty much entirely devoted to studying.
You do learn about all animals, and working as a mixed animal vet is always a possibility. However, most people do choose to specialize in equine or small animals or large animals. And the vet school clinical curriculum does allow some flexibility for you to emphasize certain areas. Everyone learns the core stuff, but you can choose which species to take more advanced clinical rotations with.
Schools with exotic departments might see the occasional spider and you might get some basic information about them. However, this is a very very small part of the curriculum (if it's there at all) and you wouldn't be required to handle them if you don't want to. But, if you are on an exotic rotation then recognize you might be required to feed insects or meal worms to some of the reptiles that are hospitalized.
Other careers you could consider would be zookeepers or other positions working in a zoo (director, curator, educator, etc). There are also some positions out there with conservation management of wildlife. If you're not sure that vet school is for you then think about an undergraduate major in wildlife biology or conservation biology and those degrees would give you a good starting point to a variety of animal and environmental careers most of which will require graduate work as well.
What Can I Do My Dog Got Hurt And I Can'T Afford The Vet Care!?
Please Please No Bad Comments. My Dog Ran Away Last Night, Broke His Leash From The Storm I Think, And Came Back That Afternoon With Blood Dripping From His Feet. His Demenor Is Completely Changed! He'S Favoring His Hips, His Tail Is Always Between His Legs, His Ears Low, And Won'T Eat Or Lay Down. I Think He Either Got Beat Or A Fight Something Happened!
But My Vets Around Ehre Are Still Asking $150 Up Front For A Visit And That'S Not Counting Care. I Don'T Know What To Do!!! I Don'T Want Him To Suffer, I Don'T Want To Kill Him Either (For Any Sickos Out There). Please, Don'T Judge And Don'T Say, &Quot;Well You Shouldn'T Have Gotten A Dog.&Quot; I Didn'T Think Someone Would Beat Him! I Just Don'T Know What I Can Do.......
Contact your animal control AND your local shelter and ask if they have any community programs for low cost vet care for people of low income. If they say no, ask about contact info to a local dog rescue. Contact the rescue and ask which low cost vets they work with.
You can also google 'help with vet bills' and work through that list to see what applies (and yes, several things will apply but you have to do the work to look through the selections).
A leash isn't strong enough for a tie out, the snaps and actual leash loop connections can be broken. Use a metal chain next time.
It sounds like he was hit by a car, not beaten or attacked by a dog or other animal. Keep him quiet and make sure he drinks so he's hydrated. You can phone any vet and ask what to do at home to help him.
Do You Question Modern Vet Care?
Whenever You Go To The Vet, Do You Ever Feel Like Your Being Raked Over The Coals? Like It'S All About Money? Are You Sure Your Pet Really Needs All Those Annual Shots, Tests, And Prescription Diets? It'S Getting To Feel More Like A Lucrative Business To Me, And Less Like Compassionate Caretakers.
I feel that modern vet care and modern human care both are driven a lot by greed and unnecessary treatment.
When I was a kid one could give their own dog rabies shots for 2.00 per shot. That was outlawed (Veterinarian Association pushed this) and now one must pay the vet 25.00 +35.00 visitation fee to do the same procedure. Less people vaccinate their pets because of this because it not affordable. I wasn't squeamish and it didn't bother me to use the needle.
The same thing can be said for deworming which is the same capsule you can buy for .75 at a feed store. The only difference is whether you can poke it down your dog's throat or have a vet do it for 45.00.
The eye ointment for my dog's eye condition was 35.00 for a tiny, tiny tube. I looked up the ingredients and basically it was just normal old Neosporin.
Also many animals now with selective inbreeding from breed enthusiasts have a huge amount of genetic disorders such as my cocker spaniels that always went blind from retina problems. My Pekingeses that had eye and back problems.
This causes sickly animals which my vet loved and wanted to roll out such luxuries as expensive eye surgeries to halfway help. Not be heartless these inbred animals are not strong enough to live properly any length of time and some suffer greatly and have become the gravy train of Veterinarians.
For instance we had two mix breed dogs that lived from the time I was 3 till I was 26 and never went to the vet. The dogs died of old age not genetic problems. They were never fixed or vaccinated heavily. They never had puppies because when the female was in heat she was separated so no cost of fixing them.
Question For All Veterinarians ?
How Do You Feel About Humanely Euthanizing Animals ?Opinions,Comments ,Etc
There aren't many veterinarians on here as far as I know. We had a couple people posing as vets, but, they couldn't spell or construct a sentence in a way that sounded like someone that had spent the last 8 years in college.. You might get lucky, but, if not, here's my two cents worth..
I'm not a veterinarian, but, I was a euthanasia technician at a busy animal shelter. Euthanasia is easier when you know you are saving the animal from incurable suffering. It's never really easy though. Even if you're euthanizing a very sick animal, you may have the owners in there to be with it while you're euthanizing the pet. It is fairly quick, but emotions run high and you can't help but feel some of the grief of the people who have had to make that decision, even if it is the best one for that pet. It always made me think of when I had my dog put to sleep, so part of it was reliving that grief too.
The worst kind of euthanasia is when you're euthanizing because someone didn't neuter their pet. When you're euthanizing because only a couple people decided to get a shelter pet. It's pretty sickening to have to end the lives of healthy animals because people decided they would rather buy from a backyard breeder. But, what else can you do? When the shelter is full, the rescues are full, the cages at PetSmart are full, you've advertised, promoted, tried to talk your friends into adopting and yet only 2 pets leave and ten more come in - you have to euthanize.
The only thing that reconciled it with me was looking at the old street cats that came in. Cats would come in with a leg healed twisted backwards that they had suffered on horribly. They'd come in with their jaw swollen shut from when they were hit by a car, almost starved because they couldn't eat like that. We'd get dogs with no fur left from mange and bad cases of heartworm. Turning them loose just isn't an answer either. Sure, euthanizing them feels like an awful waste of life, but, at least it's a quick and painless death which is more then a lot of stray pets get..
Do Veterinarians Rescue Dogs?
I'M A 13 Year Old And I Want To Be A Veterinarian When I Grow Up And Rescue Animals Like Cats And Dogs. I Just Don'T Know If Im A Little Mixed Up.
Veterinarians try to improve the health of animals. They are not restricted to cats and dogs, they might work with parrots, horses, pig, snakes and even pet tarantulas. Some work in zoos.
Veterinarians are better equipped to work with dog or cat rescues than others, but part of the job of a veterinarian is to humanely kill animals, so it is not all about curing animals. The basic fact is, yes, you can rescue some animals as a vet, but their number is very limited. You'll be working long enough hours so you don't have time to look properly after a large number of pets. Maybe a few, but not more than other people. You also will see pet owners who let their pet die out of ignorance or lack of funds, and there isn't that much you can do.
Depending in which country you study to be a vet, you may end up with a lot of student loan debt and it might take you quite a while to pay that off. Generally you also have to be very good in school in order to get into a vet school. It can be harder to become a vet than a medical doctor for humans.
