Vet careers

We have showcased the breadth and variety of possible careers you can have with a veterinary degree and you may do several of them throughout your career.  Many people think being a vet is looking after their pets but it is far more than that.  We show that vets look after the food we eat, diseases that can spread to humans, hospitals referral centres,  illegal imports and trade of animals and animal products, animals used for research, SSPCA, Zoos and Wildlife, Farm animal health and welfare, pathology, farmed fish, Government policy,  University teaching and technology and innovation for the vet profession and the list goes on. 

Many cultures revere the art of story telling for understanding and inspiration.  In Gaelic it’s called Shanachie.  This project would not have been possible without the enthusiasm, kindness and generosity of the vets who gave their time to tell their stories to us so we could share them with you.  We have filmed these “stories” to inspire you, encourage you and keep you going on your journey to vet school and beyond and if you listen carefully you will hear no-one took a straight path all of our journeys have bumps in the road so when the going feels tough keep going – enjoy!
