Preveterinary Studies



Dr. Dolittle may be able to talk to the animals, but that's not enough to get him into vet school these days. Your love for animals isn't either. There are only twenty-eight veterinary schools in the United States. That makes for fierce competition. So get ready for lots of hard work to stay ahead of the pack.

At most schools, you can't major in preveterinary studies. You'll need to choose another major, such as biology, that requires many of the same courses vet schools look for. But completing one of these programs will show vet schools that you're serious about becoming a veterinarian.
