Veterinary Medicine
 
Working in the field of veterinary medicine, you will promote pet wellness and help sick animals. Veterinarians complete 4 years of college followed by 4 years of vet school to become doctors of veterinary medicine (DVM). Veterinary Technicians are vet nurses who have passed a test to become credentialed. In most cases they are required to complete 2-4 years of school in a vet tech program.
 
Veterinary Assistants are similar to techs, but are not licensed and have not attended vet tech school. Because of this, they often cannot perform more advanced nursing duties (depending on state law)
 
Those interested in working with animals have many choices under the umbrella of Animal Science or Animal Training. Students learn animal behavior, nutrition, physiology, and genetics. They work directly with animals and trainers for hands-on experience. Animal Breeders work with livestock and domestic animals through the breeding cycle, noting pedigrees and characteristics in preparation for sale. Educational requirements vary depending on the position with certification or degree in Animal Training providing optimum employment opportunities.
