Transcript of Veterinary Sciences

People who are Naturalistic enjoy learning about biology, botany, and zoology.
About Veterinary Sciences
There are several different types of Veterinary Sciences that specialize and cover all domestic and wild species.
Why did I choose this career?
My 3 main Multiple Intelligences are:

Veterinary Sciences
By: Michelle Tepper
Specific Animal Practice
These vets specifically study one kind of species. e.g. Equine vets, Feline vets etc..
Small Animal Vet
These vets examine and treat small animal patients (dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs etc..) e.g. Your local vet
Interpersonal, Musical and Naturalistic.
Patience is very important when it comes to animals and dealing with people; taking your time is key when making decisions as well.
Body language is also vital because both the person and animal want to feel comfortable with your actions and not feel at risk or nervous when giving their animal to you for surgery or an examination.
These veterinarians can work from zoo's to farms to their own private clinic or hospital.

These vets care for all sorts of different species of small and large animals; not just one or the other. e.g. A zoologist
Mixed Animal Practice
Large Animal Vet
These vets work specifically with large animals such as cattle, horses, sheep, goats, cows, pigs etc... and typically work on a farm.
Why did I choose Small Animal Veterinarian?
It's very rewarding to know that you've made an animals life healthier or more comfortable.
You can specialize in a certain small animal or work with all of them.
You can also specialize in a specific treatment while other co-workers do different procedures as well.
People who have musical intelligences are good at thinking in patterns, rhythms and sounds.
This can be beneficial for memorizing certain work patterns or routines.
Often times people who have musical intelligences are good listeners and do well in lectures.
They are generally good at categorizing and cataloging information easily.
Most enjoy having pets and being outside.
Sensitive to their environment and often are gifted at nurturing and growing things as well as the ability to care for and interact with animals.
The Interview
I interviewed my local vet Dr. Tejpaul Bhatia at Cypress Animal Hospital.
His typical working day: He is the boss of the business and he works 7 days a week; 8 hours a day providing health care for the animals brought in.
The typical salary range for someone in a position like his: He said $60,000-80,000 annually; however since he is the owner he gets paid closer to $250,000 annually.
Dr. Bhatia's Path
He studied at Mysore Vet college in India to obtain his veterinarian medicine degree and then went to study at the university of Guelph, Ontario to get his Bachelor of Science.
All in all it took him 8 years in total to finish his schooling. (Because he was foreign he had to spend another year taking exams for English comprehension.)
The Path
The courses I must take from grade 10-12 in order to become a vet are: Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Physics, English, and Calculus.

In a pre-vet undergraduate program basic required classes include biology, anatomy, chemistry, physics, microbiology, organic chemistry, and biochemistry. (All pre-vet programs are different)
After obtaining a pre-vet major you can to apply to D.V.M (Doctor Of Medicine) programs if you wish.
