Tania’s Answer

Here is a list of the accredited vet schools in the US and abroad. There are 30 in the US, but you do not have to limit yourself to the school that are in the US, I have colleagues that graduated from schools in Canada, Scotland, and Australia. Like four year universities, vet school get ranked by USNew&World Reports. Here is the most recent ranking: https://www.usnews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-health-schools/veterinarian-rankings. But just because UC Davis, Cornell and Colorado State are at the top of the list, doesn't mean they will be the best schools for you. Veterinary School is very competitive, so just getting in is HARD, and all accredited school provide a good education. The University of Wisconsin, Madison has a very good program ranked #8 (behind 4 schools that tied for 4th place).

Another thing to keep in mind is that you will have to complete a four year degree at a collage or university prior to applying to vet school. It doesn't matter what your major is or what school you go to. The most important this is that you get good grades and good scores on the GRE, complete the prerequisites for vet school and gain some experience in the veterinary field (volunteer at animal clinics, shelters, wildlife rehab).

Steps you can take to learn more about vet schools you might be interested in:

Tania recommends the following next steps:

Do some internet research on the schools you think you might want to attend.
Find a vet who attended the school you are interested and ask them about their experience, what they liked and didn't like about the school.
Visit the schools. Many vet schools have open house events, or give tours to visitors.
