    Can You still be a vet if you are squeamish??

    So I really love animals and I want to be a vet, but I'm really squeamish, like I had to leave the room during a heart dissection in class. Do you guys think that is something I can get over?? If so how?? Any advice is much appreciated!!! (BTW I'm currently in sophomore year of high school)

    I don't like ALL animals...should I still pursue DVM?

    I want to pursue DVM to help decrease stray dog populations but that doesn't pay so eventually I will work in a clinic... but I don't like rodents and reptiles. I wonder if it's still worth it to go for DVM if I am limited in what animals I feel comfortable/willing to treat? What do you guys...

    Animal experimentation

    I'm planning to apply to medical school during the next application cycle (matriculation in 2018), and I was wondering whether it could possibly hurt my chances to include one of my activities involving animal experimentation. During the summer after my freshman year of college, I observed...
