Being around animals all the time seems almost to good to be true. Also helping people to feel better that I helped to save their pet would be an amazing feeling. Yet I am definitely not excited about going to school for 7-8 years or having to put down animals when they are very sick, old or injured. Throughout my research I learned a lot more about what it takes, and the working conditions of being a vet. But the positives of being a Veterinarian outweigh the negatives and when I am old enough I am ready to be on the work field.</li></li></ul><li>Works Cited<br /><br /><br />
