Have you ever looked at stray dogs and got a desire to do something for their poor conditions of living? Or have you ever felt heartbroken for an injured animal walking here and there helplessly? You can spend your whole life helping these voiceless creatures, getting an utmost contentment as well as earn good salary and reputation out of it. To achieve this goal you have to go through a specific course for which preparing early would be a great start. Today I will help you get the right information to become a veterinarian so that you don’t miss any chance of grabbing this wonderful career path.

 

How to begin

It is mandatory for you to be a science student to jump into this line. Focus well on your science subject in school, this will help you build up a strong foundation for this career path and will definitely get you a good score too. You have to be naturally good in Biology, if this is a subject that is dearest to you then hard work will definitely help you reach your goal. So keep well with Physics, Chemistry, and mostly Biology. NCERT books as everyone knows are the key to success to cracking any kind of entrance exam after 12th. Now let's get started with the process of securing a seat in a well-reputed university to become a veterinarian.

 

Where to apply

Being aware of what you want to be in future and how to get there; then taking all the necessary steps one by one is the key to getting into your dream job. Different states have a different process of selecting potential candidates, it is good to have information in advance about the process of getting selected. Once you are done with your 12th Board Exams with PCB you need to apply in all the possible universities out there which are as follows:

  • AIPVT (All India Pre Veterinary Test)
  • KEAM ( Kerala Engineering Agricultural Medical)
  • MH-CET ( Maharashtra Common Entrance Test)
  • CENTAC (Centralized Admission Committee under govt. of Puducherry)
  • GUJCET (Gujarat Common Entrance Test)
  • GADVASU (Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Sciences University, Punjab)
  • AICEE (All India Common Entrance Examination)

These are some the most accredited medical university which offers veterinary courses. AIPVT occupies 15% seats of all colleges whereas Puducherry has 5 reserved seats for candidates from Goa because Goa has no veterinary course. Kerala has one college which possesses 40 seats. Gujrat has 8 veterinary colleges (maybe more) and Maharashtra has 6 colleges. After attending all these exams your score will be sent to VCI (Veterinary Council of India) and they will call you for counseling and college preferences will be given to you according to your score. The course for which you will be studying is known as B.V.Sc ( Bachelor of Veterinary Science) having a duration of 5 years including 6 months of internship and AH (Animal Husbandry). You can start your career right from here or go for specialization in surgery, medicine etc. according to your interests. Now, let's know how B.V.Sc differs from AH.

 

Difference between B.V.Sc and AH

Both of these professions exposes you to dealing with animals and birds but in different ways, B.V.Sc requires you to treat animals, cure diseases and also study about various diseases occurring in animals and birds which mean dealing with the physiology of animals and birds in detail. On the other hand, AH involves mainly breeding of farm animals to get desired traits. The demand for these professions differs according to the services that they provide. Veterinarian is demanded in hospitals, zoos, urban cities as the number of people keeping pets is increasing nowadays. They are also in need in rural areas where people keep animals for their livelihood. Talking of AH, numerous farmers rely upon animal husbandry for their livelihood, one has to attempt the work relevant to feeding and breeding of farm animals such as cattle, sheep, horses, pigs, calf etc. Make your choice according to your interest.

 

Conclusion

Going for Veterinary and Animal Husbandry would turn out to be a right choice if you wish to work for animal welfare and this is a career path which is developing globally and has a bright career.
