To be a veterinarian you have to do the training that's needed. In vet school they have 4 years of VMP (veterinarian medicine program). The first 2 years of VMP includes advanced training and basic veterinarian science like prerequisite courses. The last 2 years of the VMP includes training in clinical procedures, disease diagnosis, and treatment such as: surgery, toxicology, obstetrics, anesthesiology, radiology and zoonosis.
The best-paid veterinarians earned $144,100 while the lowest-paid earned $51,530
Vets working in the scientific research development services, pharmaceutical and medicine manufacturing and wholesale electronic markets end to be among the highest paid.
It is projected from 2012-2022 jobs in this field will increase 12%, which in turn is a very positive outlook for someone getting into this field.

Annual Salary Needed
My career falls under the health science cluster. Which is also under Therapeutic services.
Some of the things I like about my career is the animals and helping them, and I'm still interested in this career.
What i don't like about this career is the risk of me getting diseases like Diabetes Mellitus Type 2.
I will be able to live on my salary because some vets make at least $51,530 or up to $144,100.
