A Question About A Veterinarian?
When I Grow Up I Wanna Be A Vet Because I Love Animals And I Wanna Help Them. When I Got To College And Do My Classes To Become One, Do I Have To Write A 1000 Page Paper??? My Brother Is In College And He Said Certain Majors Have To Write 1000 Pages Or Something Like That. So Would A Vet Have To Write A Humungo Paper??? Please Answer! Thanks:P
1,000 pages is an exaggeration, but If you go to college expect to write a long paper at the end of your college career regardless of you're major. There are very few majors that do not require the students to write a huge paper at the end of term, and the longer you're in college studying for your degree the longer you can generally expect that essay to be.
Working towards a degree to become a veterinarian you should be expecting to write a long essay at the end, for exactly how many pages that will depend on your school and professors. If that's what you want to do though then go do it, by the time you're done you'll have more than enough to write a book and doing the essay will be nothing.
I Need Information About Veterinarian?
If A Real Veterinarian Answer My Question, It Would Be Great. However, If Anyone Knows About This Job Very Well, It Would Be Great, Too!!!
Please Give Me Accurate Answer
(I Want The General Veterinarian Or Popular One)
- Salary (Starting, Average And High Salary)
- Education Required
- Growth Rate
- Job Security
- Work Time (Hours) Required
- Stress, Other Extraordinary Work Conditions
- Fringe/Other Benefits
- Things That You Feel Are Positive/Negative About The Career
- Type Of Person Is Right For This Career
- Why You Want To Pursue This Career
Salary: Starting (assuming you're not doing an internship or residency) = $60,000.
Average overall = $105,000
Average for internships/residencies = $25,000
The high is more difficult because it greatly depends on whether or not you've specialized and whether or not you're an associate or a clinic owner. Owners and specialists will make more, generally on the order of $200,000. Associates will typically be less and stay closer to the average.
Education: Minimum of 6 years. 2-4 years of undergraduate work (most people do 4) and 4 years of vet school. Internships and residencies are required if you want to be a board certified specialist, but only 1% of vet students go onto a residency.
Growth rate: Veterinarians are in demand right now. Especially in food animal medicine and public health areas. Growth rates look good as people are spending more and more on their pets. Zoonotic diseases are becoming more of a concern which opens up more jobs for veterinarians in government and military positions.
Job security: Also very good. Animals will continue to need vaccinations, and treatment in the future. Additionally, as I mentioned before, the jobs in public health areas are only growing, not going away.
Hours required: It depends on what area you've gone into. Most large/mixed animal practitioners who work out in the country are on call 24/7. Practice owners normally set their own hours. Associates typically work 45+ hours/week with Saturdays very common. If you work in industry or government, it'll be closer to 40 hour weeks with no Saturday work. But, for some of the government positions you might have to ship out at a moment's notice to deal with contagious disease outbreaks or similar emergencies. If you work in academia, you'll have a shorter work day as well, but many of them do stay longer, or come back in the evenings to help students with review sessions and questions. I've even had one professor hold a Saturday review session and they're usually in their offices on Saturdays catching up or grading.
Stress: It can be stressful, you're basically in charge of an animals life. When you're doing surgeries, treating diseases or even simple vaccinations, their care is in your hands. If something goes wrong it can be stressful. You also have to deal with stubborn owners, cruel owners, or just plain stupid owners. You'll have to deal with people wanting to put animals to sleep simply because they bark too much or shed too much. Other extraordinary working conditions on the large animal side, often times you're out pulling a calf in the snow or rain or out there in the heat in the summer. There's also a lot of heavy lifting, potentially dangerous chemicals and exposure to potential zoonotic diseases like rabies.
Benefits: You're a respected member of the community, you get discounts on dog food, lots of free stuff from drug companies including heartwork preventative, flea and tick preventative. Discounts on surgeries, medications and vaccinations. Often times free bording while you're on vacation.
Travel: Veterinarians have a lot of potential to travel, depending on the area you go into. Even small animal clinicians get to go to conferences every year (there's on in Vegas every year). If you're on the public health side you'll get to travel all over the country responding to/investigating possible threats and outbreaks. There is a program called vets without borders that lets you volunteer your time oversees. Many other areas send you all over the country to lecture to various groups including other veterinarians, veterinary students, medical doctors or the general public.
Positive: You can pretty much do anything you want with this degree. It's a fascinating field that keeps expanding as we're discovering new things. There's huge potential for growth and your salary isn't as bad as people seem to believe it is. You get to help animals.
Negative: There's always those pesky owners, like I mentioned before that don't follow your recommendations. Refuse vaccinations or tests and then get mad when there dogs keeps getting sicker. They complain they have no money for X-rays of poor fluffy's chest, but then they drive away in a brand new BMW. There is a lot of schooling to go through and it's very difficult to get accepted. It's also very expensive. The average 2008 graduate, graduated with $130,000 in student loan debt.
Type of person: You need to like animals as well as people. You need to be comfortable with science and medicine. You need to be ok with blood, and other bodily fluids. You need to be ok with dissecting animals (in school) and most of the commonly performed procedures (spay, neuter, declaw). You have to be able to analyze a lot of information, pick out what's relavent and discard the rest. You have to have good people skills both for dealing with clients, but also technicians, receptionists, assistant and other

Veterinary Receptionist-What Classes To Take For This Job?
Ive Been Looking For A Vet Receptionist Job For Over A Year Now. The Only Experience I Have Is Animal Bathing At A Grooming Salon, Volunteering ,And A Few Days Of Doggy Daycare. Are There Any Classes In College I Can Take To Better My Chances At Getting This Position? Or To Have Any Vets Actually Hire Or Call Me Back After Submitting A Resume. There Are No Vet Receptionist Programs Nearby. Anything I Can Do???
I've been a veterinary receptionist for six years. The office manager and I go over the resumes of job applicants, so I can tell you what we look for.
I'm not sure there are classes specifically for becoming a vet receptionist, but what would be helpful would be a class in medical (preferably veterinary) terminology. The job involves many difficult words, and some sort of proof that you know what they mean and can spell them would be a big plus on a resume.
We also look for some indication that an applicant can use good sense in making the appointments. It's far more than a matter of scheduling them on a first-come, first-served basis. A good receptionist has to be able to decide which calls for appointments are more urgent than others, how to balance the schedule to keep things moving yet not overbook and have to cram emergencies in, what *are* emergencies and so on. Therefore we look for responsible public contact experience.
Also emphasize your experience with animal handling. You'd be surprised how many people apply for a front office job at a vet hospital and then are amazed that the work involves touching animals, even cleaning up after them.
Army Veterinary Job?
I'Ve Heard Getting A Vet Job In The Army Is Really Hard But I Was Wondering What Are The Chances Of Getting It And How Long Of An Enlistment Does It Require?
The only thing to do is ask a recruiter what the in and out calls are for that MOS. No you do not have to be an officer only to do this job. There are NCO's and privates that work at the vet clinic. I personally see them once a week, they come to my office to turn in paperwork. Is it hard? I would think so because it is not a high demanding job, and people most likely don't get out in 4 years the become lifers because its a good job. AWESOME duty stations might I add, really good if you get it.
