Vickey’s Answer

There are two simple things you can do to get all of your questions answered.

Vickey recommends the following next steps:

Go online and do your research. Search everything you can think of about becoming a veterinarian. Write all your questions down. (Best to keep a journal with all the information in one place.)
Make an appointment with a veterinarian. Ask that person all the questions you have.
Make an appointment with your school counselor. Tell them what you want to do and ask for their help.
Pick a few schools you would like to attend and then quiz their counselors on everything about the program. Also include things like finances, room and board, books, etc.

Kortnee’s Answer

Hello, Aileen!

The following majors are a great pathway for becoming a veterinarian:

  1. Biology
  2. Physiology
  3. Anatomy
  4. Math
  5. Physics
  6. Chemistry
  7. Zoology
  8. Microbiology


Kortnee recommends the following next steps:

Meet with a Career Counselor at your University to talk about how you may connect with alumni who are currently practicing as a veterinarian. Talking to veterinarians will give you an opportunity to learn more about the field and the majors they pursued before becoming a veterinarian.
Meet with an Academic Advisor at your university to discuss possible majors in order to become a Veterinarian.
