If you have access to the Internet, that's all you need. Start clicking, there are good schools everywhere. Good luck!

In the u.k -The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (absolutley ace school)
In Ontario Canada -University of Guelph (most popular)

Entrance into Guelph requires a 2yr undergrad course, work experiance with large animals, small animals, research helps :( . You have 5 "tries" to "get in", then you can't apply anymore. (to Guelph) . This may have changed since I last looked into it.

I don't know the entrance requirements for RCVS, but a friend of mine states that it's one of the best.


Good luck, hope you becaome a great vet! :D
