Pre-Veterinary Medicine

If you love animals and excel at math and science, consider a career in veterinary medicine. Veterinarians care for the health of animals and work to improve public health. They diagnose, treat and research medical conditions and diseases of pets, livestock and other animals.

Most veterinarians work in private clinics and hospitals. Others travel to farms, work in laboratories or classrooms or work for the government. Veterinarians must have a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from an accredited veterinary college.
