Becoming a Veterinarian - Top Ten Books for Kids

I have selected 10 books that I believe provide great information for kids of all ages who are expressing an early interest in working with animals. I know that if found it very difficult as a young boy to find meaningful information on this fascinating career choice. Back then, pretty much the only option available to me was the local library or the school library and the choice of books around at that time was very, very limited.

Today, there are so many more resources available and hopefully, this selection will fill that void and provide a great insight into this wonderfully worthwhile activity. I hope that you enjoy my article. I believe that the child in your life will find encouragement and inspiration from these books.


What Is It That Vets Do?

Vets are responsible for the diagnosis and treatment of animals that are sick or injured as well as the prevention of disease. They also provide advice on animal welfare and hygiene. Veterinary Surgeons will perform surgery and dentistry and when necessary euthanise animals. It is a very challenging and responsible occupation where as well as experiencing the joy of working with animals, you will need to be able to cope with the emotional impact of seeing animals in difficult and upsetting situations and to be able to deal sensitively with animal owners who are often distraught at seeing the suffering of their pets.

If you are someone who has commitment and dedication to improving the lives of animals, then this may be the career for you.

A normal day in the life of Vet will include:

  • Meet pet owners and build a good rapport with them, listening to their concerns about their animals.
  • Perform general procedures, surgery and dentistry.
  • Carry out routine and regular health checks on pets.
  • Evaluate and treat animals brought in to your practice.
  • Test for and vaccinate against diseases.
  • Treat and dress wounds.
  • Prescribe animal medication.
  • Euthanize animals.

Vet Academy - for children aged 5 to 7 years

Becoming a vet is often something that people feel driven to be. It is something of a vocation and something that many people aspire to from a very young age.

Vet Academy is a w wonderful book that will capture the interest of most young children. This activity book examines three categories of vet - Pet Vet, Zoo,Vet and Farm Vet. A great mix of learning and games that will be sure to engage and enthuse the budding young vet in your life - and perhaps foster continued interest in the life of a veterinarian enough to entice them to vet school when they are little older.

Publisher: The Ivy Press

What Types Of Animals Do Vets Treat?

The majority of veterinarians actually treat small domestic animals such as pet dogs, pet cats, along with some of the slightly more exotic pets such as reptiles, birds and rabbits, guinea pigs etc. Not altogether surprising really as the majority of people live in towns and cities where space for larger animals is limited.

It is said that about 20 percent of vets work with larger animals such as horses, cattle, pigs and sheep. Whilst an even smaller percentage of vets will specialise in the more exotic wild animals that you might find in a zoo for example.

As a vet, you will need to be comfortable handling a wide variety of creatures.

Veterinary Technician

Ideally suited for the older child. This book provides a comprehensive look into the role of the Veterinary Technician. The reader is informed via a series of stories from people who have performed this vital, yet sometimes overlooked career as part of a veterinary practice. In fact, being a Vet Tech provides many more opportunites to work with animals in areas such as agricultural programmes, Zoos and research laboratories.

This marvelous resource also gives insights into pay, the professions outlook and job conditions.

Vet Fact

All future vets must go through a veterinary college. This is a 4 year course. Competition for places is very high and any candidate must attain high grades in order to pass entry criteria.

What Can A Vet Expect To Earn?

This can vary quite extensively, being largely dependant on the hours you put in to it and the nature of animals that you care for. Don't forget that you may need to work long or unsociable hours, it is certainly not a of 9 to 5 job. As you become more experienced as a veterinarian, build a robust client base, and broaden your knowledge, you would expect to earn more.

Recent figures for vets earnings suggest that newly qualified vets might expect to earn between $50,000 and $70,000 per year. With more experienced vets earning between $60,000 and $100,000 per year.

I Want To Be A Vet

A great way to spark a young childs interest in being a Vet. This book provides an opportunity to actively engage with your child on the subject. It provides young children an insight into the working day of adults. This is important as it is very easy for anyone who has aspirations to be a vet, especially at a young age, to assume that being a vet is just a day full of cuddly animals. This book has easy-to-read captions and colour photographs, a wonderful way to help children understand what's involved caring for animals. Helps young readers learn to respect the importance of doing a job well.

      At one time I wanted to be a Vet, but when I saw animals suffering and crying it was too much for me..20 years later I started to breed Arabian Horses, and what did I have to do? a lot of things Vets did...I had to, it was too costly to have a Vet out for every little thing,,,you learn fast.

      Lot of good books here for younger readers. Like flycatcher, I LOVED the James Herriott books and watched the TV series of "All creatures Great and Small" too (I see from a quick Google search on Youtube that the TV series was over 30 years ago! It doesn't seem that long.) The books were really, really funny and fantastic page-turners and gave a great idea of a vet's day to day life in a farming practice with some small animal work. Great lens.

      When I was a kid, though not quite as young as the audience for these, I just gobbled up the James Herriott "life od a country vet" books (All Creatures Great and Small, etc) - but the required science courses ended up being my downfall on the road to veterinary medicine. :) There are a lot of books here that are new to me - thanks for the gift suggestions!

      Great list of books, the book that inspired me to want to be a vet was the James Herriot books, read them starting in 6th grade, they are still my favorite. Majored in Animal Science, worked at the vet school, but ended up in animal nutrition. In my previous career I actually taught classes at a veterinary school. So I came full circle.

      I've always loved animals, and remember as a young kid, I dreamed of being a vet one day. Our local vet allowed me to come in and work part time (as a volunteer). The first animal that came in was an adorable puppy with a broken leg. I cried all the way home and all night, and gave up my dream to become a vet.... just didn't have the heart for it. Much luv to all our vets out there taking care of our furbabies.

      @Jo-Jackson: This is one of the things that brought me to put this lense together - I too had a difficult time trying to find relevant information on vets as a kid.

      This is really helpful. I wish this info had been around when I was a kid.

      @BarbRad: I've always had great respect for vets, they do seem to install a calming, almost respectful air from the pets that visit them - I know my dogs always seem to be on their best behaviour when visiting the vet.

      Great idea for a lens. I'm the type who faints at the sight of blood and does not have a calming influence on animals, so this never would have been the job for me. I get along fine with cats, but I'm nervous around large dogs.

      @missjensen: I think becoming a vet is an aspiration for most of us who love animals, at some stage in our lives.

      My daughter decided this year that she wanted to become a vet. These books will give us a great of idea of where to start. Warmest Regards Miss Jensen
