Veterinarians care for the health of animals and work to improve public health. They diagnose, treat, and research medical conditions and diseases of pets, livestock, and other animals.
Sydney Stotler's insight:

1.

Undergraduate schools typically are four years long.  This includes taking courses in biology, animal sciences, microbiology, chemistry, organic chemistry, anatomy, and phisiology.  There are only 29 vet schools in the United States making it one of the most competitive schools to be accepted to.

2. In order to become a vet in the United States you must complete a certified veternary program and then pass the North American Veterinary Licensing Examination. You have to pass your boards and receive a license for the state you plan to practice in. The license changes for every state. 

8. It takes a special person to be a vet. The job contains difficult situations and a new challenge everyday. Some qualities include: compassion, desicon-making skills, interpersonal skills, management skills, manual dexterity, and problem solving skills.

9.When vet schools are decided which applications to accept they look at the amount of experience hours you have. These hours include shadowing under a licensed vet as well as any experience you have ever had working with animals.

10. You can practice as a vet whenever one receives their license but most vets choose to do an internship. This allows the vet to become more experienced in their field. Others go on to pursue more education to specialize in one specific species.
