The best way to plan your future and pay for vet school is to begin by writing your goals down on paper. Also, break the goals down to smaller achievable steps. Submit an application for a grant to get you started to see what is available for you. Once you are notified that you are approved and what you are responsible to pay then you can map out your plan and create a budget for yourself. It is important to stay focused on meeting your budget, check your progress and seek employment with a vet that will allow you to do on the job training. This will allow you to make sure you continue to have the passion that you have now. Check in on your goal as well. Write down what you plan to be doing in 1 year, 2 years and 5 years setting a time limit on how long you will stay in this position and ultimately achieve this goal.

Paying for school is easily one of the most challenging things people face. I'm not sure where you are in the process (either still in high school or already working your way through college) so I'm going to start at the beginning and you can skip to the parts that are relevant. Good luck to you! A good vet is hard to find!

Hello! Great question! As an undergraduate, you would apply to college as a pre-vet major. Depending on your financial situation, you would qualify for grants (which you don't pay back) & loans through your application with FASFA. There are also scholarships to help you. Once you get into vet school, most graduate courses are paid through loans (again through FASFA). Hope this helped!
