Veterinarians diagnose and treat illnesses in animals. In addition, they provide advice to pet owners about how to keep their pets healthy.
A doctorate in veterinary medicine is required to obtain this position. Typically, a veterinary program takes four-five years to complete. Most people already have a four-year bachelor’s degree before entering a veterinary program, although this isn’t always necessary. Some students may complete a number of pre-veterinary courses, then enroll in the veterinary medicine program.
There will likely be strong competition for these positions. Opportunities may differ based on geographical location.
