I completely LOVE my job 100% even through the ups and downs. Most people associate veterinary medicine with playing with animals all day and that's not all that it entails. There is ALOT of hard work and long hours that goes into working in a veterinary clinic. Hope I answered some of y'alls questions! You can always write to me or shoot me an email if you have any more questions. Don't forget to subscribe! xoxo

Would u know how I can find any books that I can read to prepare me for Vet School, and also any vet offices that I can go to get the training in Oklahoma? I have tried checking into at least 3 vets offices, and the last 2 didn't call me back, and 1 out of 3 was so rude.
I’m currently a kennel attendant and looking to pursue my degree in veterinary technology. At the moment I’m finishing up a few of my core courses before I apply for a vet tech program. How do you deal with “difficult” and “two-faced” coworkers? I’ve been told that most clinics are full of bitchy females and I’m hoping that’s not true. I’m pretty much treated like crap at the clinic where I’m at.
You love your job because you're a girl who works in a female-dominated profession. 80% of vet med classes are now women. The field is growing more feminized. I shadowed at a vet hospital, and I was the only male in the building. One of the main reasons I decided not to go into vet med. More women go to college and graduate now. Women are encouraged and coddled and given awards every step of the way. Hell, I wish our society started giving a damn about males again.
Speaking as a woman that has been in veterinary medicine for over a decade I have seen the progression of the field becoming more equally representated by both sexes. I have loved my job even when I worked with primarily men because I don't do this job for my coworkers. I do this for the patients.
CJ, I don't hide behind a computer screen. I could accuse you of doing the same thing with your nasty comments. Nor am I a misogynist by any stretch. I am pointing out a fact. Veterinary medicine is now a predominantly female field, and there is little encouragement for more men in the field. Simply because your town happens to be an exception to the general trend doesn't make my observations invalid. Women have come a long way over the past century, which is wonderful, but I think I am still allowed to have my concerns as a male. In a way, there has been an over-correction in society in favor of women in veterinary medicine and other areas. Girls are now given more incentives and encouragement in STEM in general. I don't need to tell you that. Maybe the vet field will balance itself out. I hope it will. It is a field that can profit from both men and women.
Coming from a town that has pre-dominantly male vets, with the exclusion of my clinic-- your argument is invalid. Society has "given a damn about men" for hundreds of years and women were overlooked up until the 1920's, so take your misogynist comments elsewhere instead of bullying a female who is half your age, behind a computer screen. Sorry that you weren't successful in your veterinary endeavors, but don't go attack others because they actually made it in this profession and you didn't, Andrew. Also I fear for any woman that crosses paths with you in life, because you are going to be awfully lonely with that elementary and archaic mindset. Quit hiding behind a computer screen and get a hobby, dude.
Hi Im from the Philippines. This year im going to college and my course will be veterinary medicine. I am very nervous because I need to have another entrance exam to get there plus the will be a interview session which I am very nervous about. Any words of encouragement and advices :( thanksss I would love to be your friend.
as a child i wanted to be a vet, i really wanted to be able to care for the animals around me, i thought thats i wasnt smart enough, now that its been a decade im starting to believe i was on the right path instead im going to try nursing, i want to thankyou alot for your videos, they are helping me understand what i will be getting into and what the industry is really all about.
I've always wanted to be a vet and today really showed me how far my passion goes. Today has been so heart breaking for my family. My cousins puppy has been very sick for a few days now and today my aunt rushed her to the vet because she got worse. They took her back for treatment but stopped when they heard she couldn't pay that very day. She told them she would have the money and pay it all Friday of next week but they refused because they wanted it now. My aunt 47 years old was bawling in the waiting room and begging them to help but they still refused. They told her and I quote "Take her to the Humane Society because they will put her down for free." My aunt then called more vet offices but they call refused as well. Unfortunately the poor baby died shortly after because she had Parvo and needed treatment fast but was not given any. My heart hurts so much that a place that was supposed to help animals cared more about money than one very sick baby 💔
I really appreciate you pointing out that math and science are important. I found that most of my classmates in tech school realized this far too late. Vet med is not just a love of animals but also physiology, pharmacology, people and many other things.
Keana Ash I started out volunteering at a shelter. They always need help. I also think this is a good way to figure out if vet med is a good choice for you before investing time and money on education. Tech school is not cheap or easy.
Bliss most of the math is dosage calculations and fluid calculations. It's pretty much algebra. I work emergency and icu so I often am calculating dilutions and additives to bags. I don't think the math is that hard. I do however work in a teaching hospital and have had to train all levels of technicians and I strongly believe you need the right teacher. Not everyone learns the same and I've been able to find a way to help many different people understand how to do the most common calculations.
I just found your channel! I started my career journey by volunteering for my senior project for highschool in October (: I applied for a position in February and I got hired in march! :) I'm so grateful for this job and i love how I feel like I'm not working! :)
I felt that it was really honest and I learned a lot to be vet nurse too, as soon as possible (i'm vet student from indonesia) and this gave me some great inspiration to compile my next step🤓👌 thank you for this, Victoria! xoxo
Oh my gosh- what a cool job, but I dont think I could handle seeing sick kitties and doggies and giving bad news. You are a pet hero, girl! Loved seeing this! Thanks so much for the love on my channel. I just subbed :)
I loved hearing your story on how you got into nursing, as it sounds almost exactly like mine!
I was hired as a Kennel Assistant just two days after I turned 17, and I am now doing a Vet Care Assistant course and I'm hoping to go onto Nursing in the new few years. Which is very exciting!!!
I love your blog by the way your eyelashes look beautiful. you are so right I work with adults with disabilities sometimes it's harder to work with their loved ones then it is to work with them. I had no idea that dogs can have seizures until my dog was diagnosed a year ago. you guys do amazing work thank God for veterinarians and the nurses and staff that assist them.♡
