Aspiring Exotic Veterinarian

Feb 8, 2016 6:02AM

Hi, my name is Alyssa, and I have wanted to be a veterinarian ever since I was a little girl. Just recently, I decided that I wanted to become a vet for a zoo. Yes, it is a lot of school, but I am up for the challenge. I have owned two cats, five dogs, and one hamster in my lifetime. They've all been amazing but my heart lies with exotic animals. They are so fascinating. I hope to volunteer and work for the Oklahoma Zoo. It would be a dream come true! I am already taking classes to prepare for my college as I am only a hogh school student. I have college credits in chemistry and soon biology as well. I can't wait to fully began my journey of becoming a vet, and this book would provide valuable insight that I desire. Thank you for letting me share my story!

Thanks for sharing Alyssa. I hope you take a look at some of the videos of exotic animal veterinarian videos on the Vet Set Go website like Meet Zoo Veterinarians and Meet a Sea Turtle Veterinarian. Most zoos have teen volunteer programs and I hope you are able to get involved with one of those.
