Although I am only 14 I really want to become a vet and I would like to know the requirements, pay, etc of being a vet... Also, I live in Alberta and I would like to know the closest universities/colleges close
One of the biggest things that schools will look for is experiance with animals. I've been interning with vets since I was 10, and I am a farm manager now for my farm. Read, learn. Take advanced science and math. And also, you have to have VERY good people skills. It's not just the animals. Posted via Mobile Device
its a lottttt of schooling. you have to be 100% focused on your school work. in high school - take as many science/biology and math and chemistry classes as you can. and do WELL in them - even just reading equine anatomy books will help you in the long. just constantly be learning right now. theres usually a two year prevet program and 4 year veterinary course after the prevet courses. and vet school is normally very hard to get into so make sure you do well in high school so you do well in your prevet courses and can get into your vet courses easily. ) good luck sweetie.
Thank you everyone! I am currently looking to volunteer at a vet clinic near my house. And I have always done pretty good in Science and really good in math (in the 90%'s). I've been looking at highschools to see which ones would be best and I'm looking for some scholarships to help me pay for all of the schooling
