Tweens and Teens Get Set for
Veterinary School

Dr. Bernadine Cruz  on Pet Life Radio

At least once a week I have a client tell me that they wanted to become a veterinarian when they were young, but never pursued the career.  They just didn’t think they had what it took.

There are so many tweens and teens who are starting to wrestle with the question ‘what do you want to do when you grow up?’  Many may entertain the idea of becoming a doctor of veterinary medicine but they also have doubts about what does it take?  Could I handle the sights, sounds and smells of being around animals?  What options are available if I like science but want to do more than tend to the traditional dogs, cats, horses and birds?  How do I go about get hands on experience?

Dr. Chris Carpenter is the founder and director of an amazing program called ‘Vet Set Go’ that incorporates his degrees in veterinary medicine and his membership in the National Science Teachers Association.  It is unique and a great way for tweens and teens to explore all the veterinary medicine can be.
