SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I read your last comments and you say you want to be a zoo vet. I do too, and I just want to make sure you know what that really entails. First off, the job most often requires board certification with usually two years of internship before that, so generally five years on top of the four years of vet school. But beyond that, a LOT of what a zoo vet job entails is filling out paperwork and being a figurehead/dealing with politics. You say you need a job with tons of excitement. But, depending on the size of the zoo and the age of its collection, there may not be tons to do each day from the medical aspect (but there will always be tons of paperwork and preparation). Lots of zoo medicine is preventative medicine. What you describe as craving sounds much more like SA emergency medicine. Just wanted to plant the seed for you to investigate zoo med further . . .
