A career in veterinary medicine takes more than loving animals. But what does it really take? What does a typical day look like in the life of a veterinarian? What sort of education do you need?

Maybe you’ve dreamed about becoming a veterinarian as long as you can remember. Maybe you’ve already been in the workforce and are thinking of changing careers to veterinary medicine. Maybe you have a friend or family member who wants to become a veterinarian, and you want to help them make an educated decision.

Visit I Want to be a Veterinarian for resources such as a downloadable brochure, veterinary life blog and the Cost of Education Map. These VIN Foundation resources and more are found on VINFoundation.org.
