SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Davis says that they want one of your LOR to be from a vet in your area of interest, and I've heard from someone that they expect the majority of your vet hours to be in your area of interest. How important is this? I'm interested in wildlife, but the majority of my vet hours are SA, simply because they're much easier to obtain and over the years, I've accumulated more of them. Although I will have a LOR from a wildlife vet, my hours with him are not nearly as massive as my SA hours. Is this really that big of a deal?
