Reyna’s Answer

Hello Hello! If your drive is veterinary medicine I would encourage agriculture classes! These principles are essential learning in vetting. Please allow yourself to explore nature in ways you are not used to as well. Engaging yourself in free online veterinary education courses is also a great push, did I mention FREE? Yes. There is such thing. If your high school provides an alternative career technical center I would advice to contact them and see if they offer Veterinary Medicine courses. Taking basic human anatomy and physiology can give you an idea of how veterinary medicine and human medicine can differ or be similar.. I encourage to visit your local bookstore and finding any interesting book that has to do with medicine, animals, humans, nature, evolution, biology, and all those lovely science books too. I believe (FFA) Future Farmers of America is a national organization that can be an essential KEY to many opportunity doors. Look into these extra curricular activities, and the right mentors will start to appear. Just in time to help guide you through the journey.

Gaurav D.’s Answer

Hi Zykerria,

I wouldn't worry so much about specific "veterinarian" classes and focus on the overall medical field. Being a veterinarian is being someone who is focused on "medicine". I would focus on any classes that give you exposure to the medical field. Taking a few CNA courses will put you in the right direction to understand medicine and overall exposure in the future to get into Veterinarian school. I wish you nothing but the best.

Adelina’s Answer

There are high schools that offer technical studies to prepare you for veterinary roles. Technical courses may include: Animal Behavior, Veterinary Nursing, Veterinary Medical Terminology, Veterinary Anatomy and Physiology, Laboratory Procedures, Veterinary Nutrition, Veterinary Clinical Pathology, Anesthesia, Pharmacology, Surgical Nursing, and Radiology. If enrolling in those high schools is not an option, or if the high school you are to go to does not offer such technical courses, then see if they offer Biology, (Human) Anatomy & Physiology, Chemistry, Physics, English Research and Writing, and anything in computers and advance math classes. Physical Education is also a good class. Staying fit will help you be able to lift a heavy animal needing care, or if the animal fights you while you are trying to give them medical care. Health class is also good. Learning about your own health and well being is just as important so that you are better able to care for the animals.
