Small Vet

Come in for a free consultation,& half off all dog treats.

What vets do for a living...

They specialize in treatment for animals. They can preform on the job that there doing differently, depending on the situation. Small vets usually preform on cats and dogs.

Why I picked this career...

I picked this career because I really like animals. I would also try to help them at any concern. I have a lot of animals at my house, and I absolutely love them all. If I could, I would take and raise every sick, hurt, and stray animal I could find.

Experience and Skills Needed...

You need to complete 4 years veterinary medicine school. But you may need to complete 4 more years. But, some veterinary programs require students to hold 4 year degrees, however, for some students, it may be hard gaining access into veterinary programs without their degrees. But if someone did not get there degree, they have to at least complete 45-90 semester hours.

Education Needed...

Like it said in the "experience and skills needed" section, you need about 8 years of college. 4 years of veterinary medicine school, and 4 more years for your bachelor degree. A bachelor's degree is usually an academic degree, earned for an undergraduate course that usually lasts fours years. Before getting a job, they want the applicants to take these classes:

organic and inorganic chemistry, physics, biochemist general biology, animal biology, animal nutrition, genetics, vertebrate embryology, cellular biology, microbiology, zoology, and systemic physiology.

What branch does this fall under and why...

The small veteran career falls under life science. I say that because it has to do with living things, like dogs, cats, guinea pigs, hamsters, bunny's, and many other small animals.

Something you found interesting about this career...

Something I found interesting about this career was that you have to go to college for almost 8 years! Most careers only go for about 6, or 7 years, not 8! Another thing I found interesting was that you don't need your bachelors degree. You just need around 45-90 semester hours.
