Carole’s Answer

Hi Allison: The best thing that you can do is to find a job either volunteer or paying, and get in the midst of many different animals. They have always said that the best way to cure a fear is to conquer your threat face to face. I would highly suggest that you look for a job maybe part time and become a star around and amongst all those big/little creatures. You might want to get into some classes that deal with all kinds of animal and then your fear will become less the more you know. Some of the vocational schools have programs like that, so I would start to check it out in your area. 1. To get to be a Veterinarian you must have a Bachelors Degree; 2. Earn a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine; 3. Become Licensed; 4.Gain Experience; Become Certified in a specialty; Join a Professional Association. These are steps to become a Veterinarian. But first you have to curb your fear.

Carole recommends the following next steps:

To start off find a pet store that you can work in or just volunteer. This will give you exposure. If you live near an animal park or a zoo you might be able to get some exposure to more animals. Anything that will help you to conquer your fear. You might try dog or cat sitting for more exposure to more animals and while doing that you could hopefully take some classes and learn about the different animals. It is important to conquer that fear before you can become a Veterinarian. Remember face to face to get good results!
