Great question!

Here's a helpful link on what you'll need to do to get to be a vet: http://vbs.psu.edu/majors/vbs/steps-to-becoming-a-veterinarian

You will need to attend a four year college, then apply to vet school after that. Typically, people who go on to vet school have college degrees in science (like biology, chemistry).
