So I've been really interested in becoming a vet. I really like medical science and have taken anatomy and physiology classes and found that I'm good a medical stuff. But I don't really want to work with humans, I'd much rather work with animals, specifically horses. I know how competitive vet school is but I pull good grades and am willing to work for it. But, what do I need to do so I can know what to expect and prepare myself to get accepted into vet school.
Here's the other question. I've heard that getting you full-blown doctorate as a vet isn't the route to go because the schooling is expensive and vets make as much money as some people with a lower degree in the field. My cousin has a pre vet med degree and she's the administrator for a large animal hospital and make more money that a vet with a doctorates and still has a lot of hands on work with animals. So, what should I do for a degree.
Here's the other thing: I really would like to work with large animals and be a large animal vet than a small animal vet. And I would love to be a vet for racehorses and work with racehorses down in Kentucky. The other thing I wanted to do is just get my pre vet med and then get certified as an equine physical therapist rehabilitating injured racehorses. I feel like I would really love that, but how competitive is it become a racehorse vet and how practical is that?
