Penn foster is a great online program throughout the country that is great to achieve your degree as a vet assistant. I would also recommend working in a veterinary setting like an shelter or a spay and neuter clinic.

Hi Evelyn -

This is a great question, there's a lot of confusing / conflicting messages when it comes to school rankings. If you're looking to become a vet, my recommendation would be to look at a school that has a clinic where you'll get real life experience verses just an education. The three best programs with actual clinics are Colorado State University, Michigan State University, and University of California - Davis location. I've found that finding a job is much easier when you can speak to having real life experience. If you'd really want to determine what it'll take to be a vet assistant, stop by your local vet to ask what they did and where they went. This may even open the window for potentially shadowing someone at their clinic to see if that's what you'd really like to do.
