Lots of different types of experience would likely be the best, but most people will have either whatever type of experience they grew up with (ie farm vs city) or the type of experience that they hope to go into in the field of veterinary medicine - aquatic medicine or racehorses for example. Having some experience and being able to explain what you got out of it that made you REALLY want to be a vet (not just " I love animals") is usually enough. Not everyone comes to vet school applications having worked for a Vet.
Todd recommends the following next steps:
- Here is a link to the University of Florida Vet school admisisions page. You can find a lot of info here. Do not be afraid to call the vet school and ask them any questions you may have. Make a list beforehand and be polite, but they are there for that purpose. You could also look for a job with a local vet or animal organization to get experience. https://education.vetmed.ufl.edu/admissions/
