Encourage Aspiring Veterinarians to Achieve Their Dreams

Did you know, according to a national survey, that becoming a veterinarian is the number one career choice of tweens and teens?

Basically, this boils down to 1 in 5 wanting to become a future veterinarian. I can believe it since we actually beat the statistic in our home.

Our oldest wanted to be a vet when she was younger, our middle daughter (14 years old) is considering it now, and our youngest daughter has recently started talking about it as well.

They were all born with an innate love for animals.

Encourage Aspiring Veterinarians

The love of animals is a very powerful and motivating passion that begins early in future veterinarians. Our girls have, at the very least, always been around dogs.

Whether in our home or my parent’s home, we have never not had a canine companion around. They have grown up with them since they were babies.

We’ve always encouraged them to be nurturing and kind to the animals they come in contact with, although I feel as though they were born knowing this.

Become a Veterinarian Camp Contest

Pet nutrition company Royal Canin believes veterinarians are at the core of making a better world for pets, and they are proud to partner with Vet Set Go to encourage future veterinarians across the country to pursue their dreams.

For the second year, Royal Canin and Vet Set Go, the first and only community dedicated to aspiring teen and tween veterinarians, are teaming up to launch the 2018 “Become a Veterinarian Camp Contest.”  

This contest aims to further help students interested in pursuing a career in veterinary medicine.

Royal Canin Become a Veterinarian Contest

For aspiring veterinarians, Royal Canin and Vet Set Go understand that it may be difficult to find opportunities where they can get animal experience or volunteer at a young age.

This contest is designed to be a solution to this problem and give students access to the world of veterinary medicine.

Students considering veterinary medicine can get hands-on experience with animals and training from experts.

Plus, since it’s a sold-out camp every year, students entering sixth through eighth grade are given the chance to win a coveted spot at Auburn University’s Junior Vet Camp from July 15-20, 2018.

The prize package includes free tuition, meals, and housing.

Three grand prize winners will be chosen to attend the camp to learn about veterinary medicine first-hand in classrooms, laboratories, and outdoor facilities.

These dedicated students will learn about public health, food animals, wildlife, anatomy, x-rays, and first aid, as well as gain valuable mentoring about veterinary science careers while on the campus in Auburn, Alabama.

Do you know an aspiring veterinarian?

To enter, students can share their personal stories on why they want to become a veterinarian and include a photo of them helping or enjoying time with animals. Students, with the help of their parents, can enter the contest at now through May 4, 2018.
