Courtney’s Answer

4 years for a Bachelor's Degree (science related is best...like Animal Science)

PLUS another 4 years in vet school.

(or you can become a vet tech in 2 years)

Check out this website for the steps to becoming a vet:

Typically, college and vet school takes about 6-8 years. Check out colleges which already have vet schools for a great way to get ahead.

Jess’s Answer

I believe that your Undergraduate degree should be biology related - and then you need to go to Vet school for 4 years after college. After you complete Vet school you take a big test and are a licensed Vet! If you want to be a veterinary technician (rather than primary doctor) your after undergraduate schooling is less.


Good luck!
