Thanks for that. I had always wondered what it would be like to go to vet school -- which I had considered. But I'm not good at math, which is why I work with words instead.

Do we have to deal with math when we go to vet? I have not figured out yet what degree should I consider. I am thinking of vet as one maybe.


Hello, Jovita,

Most veterinary schools require you to have taken a Physics class before entry. You will have to be able to do algebra and trigonometry to pass physics.

In daily practice you will need to do simple math, like figuring out drug doses. If the dose is 25mg per kilogram, and the dog weighs 44 pounds, what size pill do you give? Or how much injection, etc.
