Does your child want to be a vet? Your child needs to be smart through high school and through college, and then lucky enough to get into medical school.
After earning a 4-year college degree, earning a DVM (doctorate in veterinary medicine) takes four more years to complete after an undergraduate college degree. And once your child gets into veterinarian school, the first three years are classroom training in animal anatomy and physiology, and then one year of clinical experience. Let me explain how to achieve the goal of becoming a vet.
How to become a veterinarian
