Transcript of Vet

In 2010 veterinarians held just over 61,000 jobs in the US. The vast majority had jobs in the veterinary services industry, while others worked for colleges or universities, medical or research laboratories, or the government. Approximately nine percent were self-employed.
Helping Strayed/Sick Animals
In addition to helping sick animals, vets can work as animal inspectors, checking to make sure that farm animals are healthy and that their living spaces are clean. Another option for vets is doing scientific research. They try to make new medicines.
I Love Animals
I love animals because they are actually like humans . They have a lot of emotions like humans and they are very adorable.
Vets work in many different places. Vets who do research work in clean, dry laboratories. Most vets who take care of animals work in small clinics and hospitals. But some work in large hospitals with the most advanced equipment.
In order to practice in the US, a veterinarian must have a license. In addition to graduating from an accredited veterinary program, to become licensed one must pass the North American Veterinary Licensing Exam (NAVLE) administered by the . Many states also administer their own exams.
To become a veterinarian one must earn a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M. or V.M.D.) degree from an accredited college of veterinary medicine. Although many schools admit applicants who don't have a bachelor's degree, having one will increase your odds of getting accepted. There is keen competition for entry into this four year program.
Types Of Vets
A few vets work in zoos and aquariums. They care for zebras, sharks, and other wild creatures.
Why this choice???
I would like to be a veterinarian because it is awesome working with animals. I would also like to be a veterinarian because I want to save lots of animals.
Veterinarians tend to the healthcare needs of animals, including pets, livestock, and zoo and laboratory animals. Most vets work in private clinics treating companion animals, for example dogs and cats. They diagnose illnesses and perform medical procedures.
How To Become A vet

Extra Information
Extra Information
Whether animals serve as companions or work on farmland, they need caring professionals to see to their health. Veterinarians care for every step of an animal's life, from complications in birth to geriatric care. In urban areas, veterinarians may use sophisticated technology, surgery, and preventative measures to care for pets. On the farm, vets are highly valued for their ability to diagnose and treat the animals that keep business running.

A Day in the Life of a Veterinarian
The majority of veterinarians work in private practice, often owning all or part of a clinic. The daily job duties of veterinarians depend highly on their focus. Those dealing with small animals may spend their days interacting with owners in a clinic setting, while equine veterinarians may travel to ranches and farms to visit their patients.

Rural veterinarians are more likely to travel, and all experience the typical trials of working with animals--the risk of being bitten, scratched, or kicked by frightened patients. People skills are an important aspect of the job because veterinarians interact with owners as much as their animals.

Veterinarian Training and Education
All veterinarians must be trained and licensed based on the requirements of their state. A bachelor's degree or significant undergraduate coursework is the typical basis for admission to the 4-year Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree.


Typical coursework for veterinarians includes vertebrate embryology, genetics, zoology, systemic physiology, and biology. Pre-veterinary courses emphasize science, and courses in business management and career development are considered incredibly useful for veterinarians who want to run their own practice.
in 2010 for Veterinarians shows the the wage was $82,040 a year which is about $39.44 an hour. To be a professional Vet you will need a doctoral / professional degree to get to this level and salary amount. The total number of Veterinary jobs available in the job market in 2010 reported by the BLS was 61,400. The veterinarian career is expected to grow by 36% from 2010 – 2020 and will add around 22,000 jobs to the overall market over this 10 year period. Being employed in one of the best paying states for veterinarians can earn you as much as $92,000 a year which is about $10,000 more than the median pay.
