"Try Before You Buy."
It is imperative for any young person wishing to pursue a degree in veterinary medicine, that they are fully aware of not only the difficulty in achieving the degree, the substantial education costs and time commitment involved, but also the nature and type of work required from them, the anti-social hours, and the relatively low grades of pay for such highly educated individuals. Compared with doctors and dentists, veterinarians are underpaid.
