Steps to Becoming a Veterinarian

Why Are Veterinarian Important?

  • Veterinarians are important for several reasons. First they help to protect animal health by examining, diagnosing and treating many diseases and conditions of domesticated animals.
  • Second, veterinarians help protect human health. One of the main ways veterinarians do this is by vaccinating domesticated animals (particularly dogs, but also cats, horses and cattle) against rabies.
  • Third, veterinarians help improve the lives of both animals and humans through everything from investigating disease outbreaks to helping develop new drugs and medical technologies to educating both veterinarians and non-veterinarians.

Reflection

I chose to do my Personal project on Veterinarians , because I always wanted to be a Veterinarian and I love animals . I always wanted to work in a environment surrounded by animals in their natural habitat. I would love to visits Africa and see the difference types of animals they have there .Being a Zoologist or Veterinarian is very interesting because you get to work with animals all day long .You get to discover what it's like to see animals end their natural day-to-day lifestyle which I find to be very cool, because animals bring a lot of joy to a persons life. And I know doing a job like this would be something I always wanted to do.
