3 thoughts on “I Want To Be A Veterinarian”

  1. Hi Sharon, I stumbled upon your blog and thought it was an oasis. I have been looking for books, sites and any other information on personal experiences on the journey to becoming a veterinarian, which has been no easy task. So first off, thank-you!

    I am actually from Canada and I have been applying and getting interviews for veterinary universities for three years now. I have increased my chances by bettering my grades and experiences.

    This year I decided to have a back up plan and applied for an Animal Health Technician program. Finding out I did not get into veterinary school this year I had made up my mind that I would start the AHT program, while still determined to apply again for veterinary medicine this upcoming year. However, one of the veterinarians that I have known and volunteered for for a number of years advised me that I should maybe reconsider as an AHT program, as it was not likely to assist me in anyway in achieving my goal and dream of becoming a veterinarian.

    I have since been trying to decide what I want to do for this upcoming year and have been trying to get as many points of view as possible before making this important decision. As such, I was curious if you could provide your opinion on how I should approach this upcoming year and if starting the AHT program would help in becoming a veterinarian.

    Thank-you so much for your time.
