Come major in biology or chemistry and prepare for veterinary school
Veterinarians identify and treat medical problems in animals. They treat injuries and illnesses, perform surgery, prescribe medications, and prescribe preventive healthcare, such as vaccinations. By these methods or through research, veterinarians also help to protect people from diseases carried by animals.


“Pre-veterinary medicine” is not a major. Although not required, a bachelor’s degree is recommended for application to veterinary school. Many students major in biology or animal science while completing the prerequisites for veterinary school. Pre-requisites for veterinary schools vary, and students are responsible for checking the prerequisites at the veterinary schools for which they apply.
