This fact-pact and enlightening book covers everything kids need to know about becoming a vet. It also gives a realistic view of what daily life is like as a vet - the challenges and triumphs.
My name is Susanna Lee and recently my daughter Monica, who has a passion for animals, asked me to help her find information on becoming a vet. Surprisingly, I couldn't find a book that contains up-to-date information and gives a real insight into what it takes to become a vet.
Most importantly, I wanted my daughter to be able to decide for herself if veterinary medicine was truly the career for her based on getting the most rounded picture possible - the good, the bad and everything in between.
So being a journalist and writer for over 20 years, I took up the challenge to create that missing book!
In How to Become a Veterinarian, I share the latest practical information available, but also offer a human perspective on life as a vet and what it's really like to work towards that goal.
