Hello Amanda: In order to practice, a veterinarian must meet the following educational guidelines:

Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree in chemistry, physics, biochemistry, biology, animal biology, or zoology

Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM or VMD) degree from an accredited college of veterinary medicine

In order to be accepted into a veterinary medical college, students should have a minimum undergraduate GPA of a 3.0 and prior experience working with animals. Students may be required to take some or all of the following standardized tests: GRE (Graduate Record Examination), VCAT (Veterinary College Admission Test), or the MCAT (Medical College Admission Test).

I researched your question and found some links that may be of interest to help you get started on your search. FYI, my niece completed college 2018 and is going into Animal Law.
