Well, there’s I think four years of a pre-vet program, then I think it was somewhere between 4-8 more years at a veterinary school. Math will be important, as will science-based classes such as biology and chemistry. I’m not sure, but you might also have to take courses dealing with animal behavior. It’s quite a long journey.

  2. Before going to vet school you have to do about 2-3 years of pre-vet coursework. These classes are going to vary from school to school, but in general lots of chemistry, and biology; a little physics, some general social sciences; english and public speaking. A math and/or statistics class might be required too.
    Go to http://www.aavmc.org
    That website lists the 28 US vet schools and links to their specific requirements.
    Once you’re in vet school it’s more science classes. Anatomy, physiology, histology, bacteriology, virology, pathology, parasitology…
    Those are mostly in your first two years. Your third years will have some clinical skills and then you’re fourth year will be all clinical.
    Vet school itself takes four years. You can find the exact curriculum of the school of your choice through the website I listed above.
