  2. To get ahead in veterinarian school, its good to have a better idea of the subject matter that you will be studying. Taking some helpful high school classes is a great idea. • Take as many math and science classes as you can(Helpful High School Courses). • AP classes are good if your school has them, if you do well in them you may receive collage credit(Helpful High School Courses). • Some helpful electives to take are, Anatomy and Physiology, animal Science, computer Applications, food and nutrition, safety and first Aid(Helpful High School Courses). • Students should check with their school counselor and see it they can have work-based learning opportunities, including field trips, shadowing, internship and actual work experience. This helps build your experience for real-life work(Helpful High School Courses). • Joining groups or having hobbies can help you make new friends and may help your future career choice(Helpful High School Courses).

  3. People who want to become veterinarians must have a lot of preparation and schooling. They must get at least four years of training after high school to get a job as a vet. • To get into a vet school, you need to take at least two courses in pre-veterinarian school, and most students have a bachelors degree when they apply (Preparation). • In veterinarian school, you take courses in basic sciences such as anatomy, micro biology, biochemistry, and physiology (Preparation). • You must have a high school diploma, or GED, and graduate from veterinary medicine school (Preparation). • After vet school, if you want to specialize in an area such as internal medicine, radiology, or exotic small animal medicine you must complete a one year internship. Interns usually receive a small salary(Preparation). • Finally you must pass a state licensing exam to get you veterinarian license(Preparation).

  4. Being a veterinarian requires special skills, abilities and interests. These are needed to be a veterinarian, they may also help you decide which field you want to specialize in such as small animal, large animal, or equine. • Being able to communicate is very important, you should be able to listen to others, understand and ask them questions, read and understand written information, and to be able to speak and express ideas to others (Skills and Abilities). • Veterinarians need to problem solve for a major part of the job. They need to use reasoning to identify problems and find a possible solution, be able to take a lot of information and draw a conclusion from that. They should be able to concentrate and not be distracted form a task and think of new ways to solve problems(Skills and Abilities). • Use math and science skills to solve problems (Skills and Abilities). • Work with people and things, such as tools and equipment (Skills and Abilities). • Veterinarians are people who like the accomplishments of their work, they like to make decisions and try out their own ideas, like to be the person to tell others what to do and be looked up to by others (Interests). • Bryan Mcnabb, a veterinarian in Lebanon, said that “Because I had a background in riding horses and love for them, I fashioned my education in such a manor to allow me to practice on them.  Meaning, my extra classes and internships were focused on horses.”

  5. A veterinarian has very different working conditions than other jobs, a lot of time and energy need to be devoted to the job. • A veterinarian needs socials skills since they will be working with pets and their owners(Working Conditions). • You need to be responsible for the animals you are caring for and you need to know how to deal with unhappy owners, because a sick or injured pet may make them stressed (Working Conditions). • Veterinarians need to be able to work in a team or a group of people(Working Conditions). • You need to be exact in your work, its very important that you don’t endanger the health or safety of the animal you are treating(working Conditions). • Be able to make decisions on your own, veterinarians rarely consult other veterinarians before making decisions(Working Conditions) • Vets need to be able to make strict deadlines(Working Conditions). • They work more than 50 hour work weeks, be on call for emergencies, need to travel to farms and ranches, and may works nights and evenings(Working Conditions).

Then be able to use your stomach and lower back to support the body for long periods of time without getting tired(Physical Demands). • For an equine vet their a lot of physical demands because the animals they are working with are large and unpredictable (Bryan Mcnabb).

  9. My personality survey said that I was a guardian, which is good because the personality traits match up with the general expectations of Veterinarians. • Veterinarians need to be able to work in a team or group of people(Working Conditions). The keirsey survey determined that I enjoy working as a valued member of a team(Keirsey). • Veterinarians also need to be responsible for the animals they are caring for and they need to know how to deal with unhappy owners, because a sick or injured pet may make them stressed (Working Conditions).
