what classes should i take in high school to become a veterinarian?
I'm a senior in high school and I wanted to know what classes I should take now to begin my steps towards a vet career. #veterinarian #veterinary #animal-health #veterinary-medicine #animals
I went to a career high school in the vet med pathway and these are the classes that they offered, which I took:
Equine science; small animal management; aquatic science; advanced animal science; livestock production; practicum in Agriculture, Food & natural resources; small animal management; vet med applications; Wildlife Fisheries & Ecology; Vet Med 1; Vet Med 2
If you're high school doesn't have these options, just go heavy on the science classes.
A few things you would need to look into in order to get a jump start would be math and science classes. You are going to need to know measurements and anatomy for sure as you are going to be giving medication dosages to animals and are going to need to know how to break it down by weight and size per milligram and the like as well as anatomy and biology to get a jump start on your sciences you are going to need for your veterinarian degree.
