How To Become a Vet

The 2017 Become a Veterinarian Contest

Vet Set Go is dedicated to showing aspiring veterinarians how to explore their dream of becoming a veterinarian.   That is why we were so proud to have partnered with Royal Canin in April of 2017 to hold the first-ever Become a Veterinarian Camp Contest.   Grand Prize for the three top winners was a full scholarship to Auburn University’s Junior VET Camp.  

The response we had to this inaugural event was phenomenal.  We reached millions of people through social media and received hundreds of entries. The stories that future veterinarians from all over the United States shared with us were inspiring.   Vet Set Go members love animals and have already done so much to get animal experience, explore the science of animals, and help animals in need.  It made picking just three winners very difficult.   

The Three Grand Prize Winners

Three grand prize winners were selected and attended the camp the following month.  To follow these grand prize winners as they went through the camp, watch the video at the start of this page.

How was their experience?  As Gunnar, one of the three contest winners wrote afterward: “Thank you this meant a lot to me. This experience made me want to become a veterinarian even more.”   Christianna, another winner added “I had so much fun and learned so much.  The experience is one that I will never forget.” 

This was without a doubt a summer camp she will never forget. Every night, we got a call telling us about her day, the excitement was contagious! She talked about what she learned and how much fun the camp was.

The parents of the contest winners were also grateful telling us: “I have to say, this was one of the best opportunities she has ever had! Not only did she have the time of her life at Auburn she also walked away with a new love of science, a wealth of new knowledge, and most importantly new friendships. This was without a doubt a summer camp she will never forget. Every night, we got a call telling us about her day, the excitement was contagious! She talked about what she learned and how much fun the camp was. They kept the kids engaged and really made them feel like they all were intelligent and beyond just capable of their dreams.”

We are very proud to have offered these aspiring veterinarians an experience of a lifetime and look forward to helping other future veterinarians explore their own dreams in the future.  Look for upcoming future offers in the Community Section of Vet Set Go.

About Us

Vet Set Go was created to encourage future veterinarians to explore their dream of becoming a veterinarian.  We believe there is no better day than today to start down the path of becoming a veterinarian and we work hard to show tomorrow’s veterinarians how they can explore the science of animals and get animal experience.
