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
What Are The Advantages Of Getting A Cat Fixed By A Vet Vs. A Clinic?
The surgery will be done by a vet regardless of whether it is a regular clinic or a spay/neuter clinic. Although not as many as vets in a spay/neuter clinic, regular vets do plenty of desexings- enough that there's probably no appreciable difference in skill level.
A spay/neuter clinic obviously has the advantage of being lower cost, however some can turn into a bit of a 'production line'. If there are enough trained staff on hand, this isn't necessarily a problem. In some circumstances though it can mean that the animal isn't as well monitored whilst under anaesthetic or when it is recovering, which is an issue if the animal runs into any problems. As far as cats go, this is really only applicable to spays. I've still got 7 weeks to go before I qualify as a vet, and even I can have a cat's balls off within about five minutes flat.
Spaying A Cat At Vet Vs Mobile Clinic?
My Local Vet Made An Apmnt With Me Next Week To Spay My Kitten. I Just Found Out From A Friend That The Stop Mobile Clinic Is In My Area Next Week. My Vet Wants Almost $400.00 To Spay And Finish Shots, But The Stop Clinic Only Charges $130.00 To Do The Same. I Really Would Love To Save Almost $300.00. Is The Mobile Bus/Van Clinic Just As Safe As A Reg Business Vet? Are There Any Downs To Using This Service? Any Advise Would Help, Since I Only Have A Few Days To Decide. Thank You
In human medicine they have found the highest success rates and fewer fatalities for open-heart surgery are at the hospitals that do the MOST surgery.
So the mobile clinic has that in their favor as private vet hospitals don't do that surgery as often as the clinics.
My female kitten was spayed in a vet office this summer for around $400. My male kitten was neutered before I adopted him from the shelter for $150.
If you truly "save" the $300, put it in a fund for the kitty's future medical expenses or emergencies. Your kitty will do just as well with the mobile clinic and you will always have something on hand to continue your excellent care of her.
Please, A Vet Or Someone Doing Veterinary At Uni!?
Basically, I Really Want To Do Veterinary At University However I Know That You Must Have Loads Of Work Experience And Even Though I Am Only 15 I Think It Would Be A Good Idea To Start Now. What Are The Guide Lines For Work Experience If You Want To Get Into A Fairly Good University And Do Veterinary? I Heard It Was Something Like 4 Weeks Farming, 3 Weeks With Small Animals In A Vets And 3 Weeks With Horses Or Big Animals?
And Also Can You Count Working At A Rescue Centre With Dogs And Cats And Other Pet Animals (Not Including Horses) As Your &Quot;Working With Small Animals Work Experience&Quot;?
Start working NOW, seriously. I'm doing vet at uni and had to start working at 13.
You want everything. You want a farm job, a job at a vet practise, veterinary pathology centre, zoo, stables. Do everything, but don't let your grades slip. In my country, you need AAAAA (top grades) to get a place at uni.
What Is The Top Veterinary Hospital/Clinic In The World?
I Am Trying To Find Out:
A) What The Most Expensive Veterinary Practice In The World Is
B) What Veterinary Center Pays Their Vets The Highest, In The World
C) Which Veterinary Center Is Considered The &Quot;Best&Quot; (Best Care, Etc.) In The World
It Could Be A Center Researching Cures For Animals, A Veterinary Hospital, Avian/Aquatic Vets, Anything Like That.
All Help Appreciated!
Hi there... your question is difficult to answer because there are many world renown veterinary hospitals that specialize in particular species. One example is that Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine is the leader for feline, canine and equine best medical care, but not necessarily in other animals. However, there are other institutions that are equally as good or even better for each particular/specific species.
Veterinary salary also varies greatly for each country therefore it would be difficult to be specific as to who makes the highest salary worldwide. USA salaries range from $45,000/year up to as high as $85,000/year.
As for the most expensive veterinary practice this is relative to the region people reside. Those individuals who live in metropolitan regions will pay more than those who reside in rural regions or less densely populations respectively.
