Introduction<br />Imagine walking into room with a bunch of people running around, trying their hardest to help animals of all kinds. Not only can you hear the cries of the owners of the pets, but you can also hear the cries of the injured animals. This is a typical day for the life of a veterinarian. I’ve always been great animals and always admired veterinarians work so I’m hoping that will be the career I will have for the rest of my life. In order to set a better understanding of this career field, I will be researching the working conditions, earnings, qualifications, and related occupations. Hopefully this research will further ignite my passion for becoming a veterinarian.<br />

I’m looking forward to getting to work with all different types of animals. I have always had a weak spot for dogs though. The thing I’m not looking forward to is having to put down the animals. It will make me sad, but I’m sure I will be fine after I remember that they are in a better place now and doesn’t have to go through anymore pain. My overall learning experience is that vets have to go to school for a long time and it is difficult to get a job as a veterinarian. I will not give up though because I believe that I can succeed and become a very good veterinarian. <br />
