For instance, I have treated internal and external parasites. Also, pneumonia for goats and cows and other diseases and health problems. I have assisted in births of all of the animals on our ranch. I also strive to study many animal science books and research sites.

This is an excerpt from story and photograph that were submitted by Zoe from Oregon as part of her entry to the 2017 Become a Veterinarian Camp Contest.  We were amazed at the passion our entrants had towards animals and all that they were doing to explore their dream of becoming a veterinarian.   We wanted to share these powerful stories with everyone.

We hope that this story and all of the stories posted here in the Community section of Vet Set Go help to motivate everyone to continue to explore their dreams.  You will become a veterinarian if you just get out there.
