There are many strongly important elites a vet possesses to be better able to perform his/her job and not all can be learned. Before even going to school to study for vet school one must possess basic qualities: compassion, good decision making skills, communication skills, manual dexterity, and very strong problem solving skills. Vet school has always been a huge goal of mine and while further researching this field feel even more compelled to follow this dream.
Although there are some things need to improve on have discovered have many of the basic skills needed before veterinary school. Since a child I have had a strong compassion for animals and when becoming vet guarantee that compassion can reach towards the owners (necessity). I need to improve my decision making skills because I tend to get overwhelmed when have an abundance of choices, but when deciding on a treatment it will be easier to choose because I will have the ability to narrow down my choices according to the symptoms.
Communication is also a necessity and THAT, I am extremely skilled with. Being very skilled with the hands, manual dexterity, is needed for setting fractures and other medical procedures. Animals are also sensitive with how they are handled and a entitle hand can determine the ultimate outcome of the experience and what the animal takes from it. Am also skilled in this area and have spent much time handling a wide variety of animals of all breeds (from birds to horses). Eave worked to improve the necessary skills and experience since about age 12 because knew for a fact that I was going to put forth all my effort to become a vet and do whatever means possible (while keeping my dignity intact). Being a vet doesn’t mean good money. It means being what stands between what could be a cheerful puppy’s life or its last breath. Know that hen I finally achieve my dream, I will do whatever can to save an animal’s life or improve its life in anyway necessary.
The life of a vet seems great in many ways to me even though there are a few downfalls would still enjoy the career very much. I will eventually progress to working with larger animals, but for now a small animal vet seems like a wonderful dream to me. Becoming a vet tech is my first goal because I can do my core classes at GRACE while I work with a veterinarian to get my vet tech certificate (no school needed). To become a vet I would have to go to school for undergraduate lasses for 4 years, so it makes sense to work on my vet tech certificate during that time while I go to school.
