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.
Can I Sue My Vet For Not Guiding Us On The Proper Care Of My Pregnant Dog That Caused Her To Die Right After G?
My Dog Was Under A Vet And Her Clinic Since She Was 3 Months Old, At 3 Years Of Age She Became Pregnant And My Vet Never Gave Us The Proper Guidance On How To Handle The Situation, How Cs Can Help And Prevent Complications And True Enough My Dog Died Right After Giving Birth. I Asked My Vet About It She Said There Was No Way To Save The Dog Since She Had A Rare Case Of Bleeding And Even Cs And Medications Could Have Not Saved Her. I Don'T Buy That... I Need Advice... Here In The Philippines Animal Rights Are Not As Strong As In Other Countries And It Is So Difficult To Stress That A Dog Can Be Loved Like If She Was Your Own Dughter. What Shall I Do?
No you can't sue. The dog died while in your care, not in the vet's care, and YOU chose to breed her. You're looking for someone to blame and I'm sorry to say that you can only blame yourself for this. You did no research on breeding and chose to breed the dog anyway. Your vet is still an idiot in my opinion since she thinks the dog had hemophilia which can only affect MALES (look it up yourself - it's a sex linked gene) but they did nothing wrong in this case. It was your job to ask the questions and do the research. Stop blaming others. Mourn your dog and learn from this mistake.
Dog Care Tips Please ?
Hey Im 15 And I Will Be Getting A Small Dog Called A Jackapoodle Before You Ask Its A Cross Between A Jack Russel And A Poodle Please Don'T Say Mutt Of Anything Like That This Is My First Puppy Im Used To Cats But Mine Died In Easter So I Will Be Getting My First Puppy Can You Give Me Some Dog Care Tips Please :D
Okay, EVERY article on EVERY aspect can be found here:
It includes general dog care, health, nutrition, vet, grooming, etc!
Also, this is all general dog care:
The annual cost of a small dog—including food, veterinary care, toys and license—is $420. Make that $620 for a medium dog and $780 for a large pooch. This figure doesn’t include capital expenses for spay/neuter surgery, collar and leash, carrier and crate.
Note: Make sure you have all your supplies (see our checklist) before you bring your dog home.
Feeding - Puppies 8 to 12 weeks old need four meals a day.
- Feed puppies three to six months old three meals a day.
- Feed puppies six months to one year two meals a day.
- When your dog reaches his first birthday, one meal a day is usually enough.
- For some dogs, including larger canines or those prone to bloat, it's better to feed two smaller meals.
Premium-quality dry food provides a well-balanced diet for adult dogs and may be mixed with water, broth or canned food. Your dog may enjoy cottage cheese, cooked egg, fruits and vegetables, but these additions should not total more than ten percent of his daily food intake.
Puppies should be fed a high-quality, brand-name puppy food. Please limit "people food," however, because it can result in vitamin and mineral imbalances, bone and teeth problems and may cause very picky eating habits and obesity. Clean, fresh water should be available at all times, and be sure to wash food and water dishes frequently.
Dogs need exercise to burn calories, stimulate their minds, and keep healthy. Exercise also tends to help dogs avoid boredom, which can lead to destructive behaviors. Supervised fun and games will satisfy many of your pet's instinctual urges to dig, herd, chew, retrieve and chase.
Individual exercise needs vary based on breed or breed mix, sex, age and level of health—but a couple of walks around the block every day and ten minutes in the backyard probably won’t cut it. If your dog is a 6- to 18-month adolescent, or if she is an active breed or mixed-breed from the sporting, herding, hound or terrier groups, her requirements will be relatively high.
You can help keep your dog clean and reduce shedding with frequent brushing. Check for fleas and ticks daily during warm weather. Most dogs don't need to be bathed more than a few times a year. Before bathing, comb or cut out all mats from the coat. Carefully rinse all soap out of the coat, or the dirt will stick to soap residue. Click here for more grooming tips.
Small dogs, sometimes referred to as "lap dogs," are the easiest to handle. To carry a puppy or small dog, place one hand under the dog's chest, with either your forearm or other hand supporting the hind legs and rump. Never attempt to lift or grab your puppy or small dog by the forelegs, tail or back of the neck. If you do have to lift a large dog, lift from the underside, supporting his chest with one arm and his rear end with the other.
Your pet needs a warm, quiet place to rest, away from all drafts and off the floor. A training crate is ideal. You may wish to buy a dog bed, or make one out of a wooden box. Place a clean blanket or pillow inside the bed. Wash the dog's bedding often. If your dog will be spending a lot of time outdoors, be sure she has access to shade and plenty of cool water in hot weather, and a warm, dry, covered shelter when it's cold.
Licensing and Identification
Follow your community’s licensing regulations. Be sure to attach the license to your dog’s collar. This, along with an ID tag and implanted microchip or tattoo, can help secure your dog’s return should he become lost.
I Am A Veterinary Doctor.I Have 8 Yrs Experience In Poultry Job.I Am 35 Yrs Old So Now It Is Possible To Migra?
I Am A Vet.My Brother Living In Canada.I Have 8 Yrs Working Experience.Now I Want To Immigrant In Canada,I Am 35 Yrs Old.My Wife Has Msc And I Have One 3 Yrs Old Child.So It Is Possible To Immigration In Canada Now?
Well, I don't know about Canada, but if you work in America as a vet, you need to have a veterinary degree obtained in America, or obtained elsewhere but still have passed the American vet exam. I would assume it's the same in Canada. You would need to apply for immigration, which takes quite a while, then you would probably have to go to school again. Some veterinary medicine in other countries isn't quite up to par with the US or Canada standard wise....
This should really be asked in the society and culture page or something idk, not pets.
Large Animal Veterinary Doctor?
I Really Want To Be A Large Animal Vet When I'M Older. I Know It Takes Eight Years But How Much Longer Would It Take To Specialize In Equine? I'Ve Been Working Around And With Horses For About Five Years Now. Also, Does Virginia Tech Have A Riding Team? (I Ride Hunter Jumper).
There are only 28 vet schools compared to 134 medical schools in the US. It is not harder to get into vet school than medical school from an academic standpoint, but depending on the number of applicants, it can be much more competitive. One in 3 applicants to US vet schools are accepted according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
High school grades and SAT scores are only looked at by the undergraduate schools you apply to. You will need four years of college preparation before you apply to vet school. Some vet schools require you to earn a bachelor's degree, while others accept just the required numbers of credit hours without requiring a specific degree. The grades you earn as an undergrad along with your scores on the entrance exams (GRE or MCAT) are what vet schools look at.
You then spend four years in vet school with the last year allowing focus in one area such as large animal medicine, and have to pass state board licensing exams to become licensed to practice in each state.
When you graduate with your DVM, it is a general veterinary degree.
Currently there is no post graduate school of equine medicine in the US, although I've heard that the University of Illinois is considering development of one.
