Transcript of Veterinarian Prezi
A veterinarian is a person who cares
for and studies animals
... Now, What are
some differences in
job responsibilities? Veterinarian vs Veterinary Technician Veterinary Technicians go through a two year post-secondary program to acquire licensing, and may attend a four year post-secondary program to receive better pay.
...Note: Veterinary Technicians act almost as assistants to Veterinarians, who go though more school. Veterinarians first get a bachelor's degree, then they attend four years additional schooling to become a doctor of veterinary medicine. History of this Career Veterinary Medicine has been around for as long as people and animals have been interacting cooperatively, which is a long time Historians have found Chinese text listing diseases
in horses and livestock dating back
to 2,500 B.C. A 4,000 year old piece of Indian art shows men caring for Horses and elephants Now for some important people! Bernhard Lauritz Frederik Bang: (1848-1932) -Danish veterinarian who discovered Brucella abortus in 1897, which caused pregnant cattle to abort and caused rising and falling fever in humans. Louis J. Camuti (1893-1981) -He was the first veterinarian to specialize in cats. At the time little veterinary service was given to cats. Buster Lloyd-Jones (1914-1980) -A British veterinarian who took in huge amounts of animals during world war II. He provided these animals with veterinary care and ended up becoming a very famous veterinarian. Future Trends: -As well as adding now forms of machinery, the future of veterinary science includes the use of electronic databases and computer memory systems to record information. Different Careers: Companion animal practice: treatment of diseases of pets such as dogs, cats and horses.

$89,450 Average work week is about 45 to 55 hours a week For veterinarians it is recommended that they have a strong work ethic, because some times they may be on call outside of office hours. Evening work and weekends may be required, as well as some holidays. As a veterinarian you would need to identify and treat illnesses, perform surgery, set broken bones, prescribe medicines and give vaccinations. -Fun fact:
Near two thirds of all veterinarians work with small animals, such as cats or dogs, in private clinics. Additional Schooling/ Training To become a veterinarian, it would take about six to eight years post secondary training. Most veterinary universities require two years pre-vet schooling at a regular university, however your chances of admission are higher with a bachelor's degree. Fun fact:
There are only 27 universities offering veterinary medicine in the U.S. Once admitted, you will begin a four year veterinary school course. An additional 3 years of schooling is required to specialize in a certain group of animals.
If you succeed, you will receive your DVM. (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree) Good classes to take are anatomy and biology (required) Volunteering is an excellent way to get training for this profession, try the humane society or your local veterinary clinic. To get your DVM in veterinary medicine it would cost about:
$147,656 for residents and $211,324 for nonresidents. Personal Qualities: You would have to be a people person and have good teamwork skills, as well as a strong work ethic. I have good team work and am a people person, and also have decent work ethic. You need to attend the required schooling in order to be certified/licensed. There are national exams to be taken. The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) is a professional organization for this career. http://www.lsbvm.org/ethics.pdf This compares well with my personal ethics because this states the importance of the animal's rights. The expected income is $89,450 annually and about $43 per hour One perk of this job is its job availability and security (expected) Growth rate from 2010 to 2018: 32.95% Being a veterinarian, opportunities to specialize are there for whatever branch you choose to! Veterinarians are required 40 hours a year to continue their education to maintain licensing. Although there aren't very many jobs available for veterinarians, there aren't many people to take them, and the number of available jobs is increasing quickly.
