Amy’s Answer

I have advised several students on the pre-vet path. Some things to consider here. First, I would encourage you to volunteer time with a local veterinarian to see what the job is on a day to day basis. Many students go into this oath because they love and want to care for animals. If this is your motivation then consider some other career options in Animal Science. Working as a veterinarian is spending more time with clients and working with people than animals. One other you should consider do you love science? The training and career requires knowledge in chemistry, biology, biochemistry, physics, and math. So if you don’t like science not a career path to choose. As students started done this path in college these were two areas that many started to realize that the career of veterinarian was not for them and considered a different one.

I am not in medicine but I am required to know career paths. I believe it’s pre-med in undergrad..medical school..then interning..then residence...then I think you can branch out into different areas. You have to go through general medicine first.
