Best Veterinary Science colleges in Texas

As a veterinarian, it is your responsibility to evaluate and administer medical care to animals of all sizes. Typically, veterinarians specialize in a particular species, though many work generally with either household pets or large livestock. If caring for exotic species like snakes or amphibians is of interest, potential students should be sure that the programs they apply for include this specialization. 

Veterinarians work closely with their patients and owners to understand the extent of injuries or medical emergencies and prescribe a program to treat and improve their daily lives. For veterinarians in the state of Texas, there are many cattle ranches, workhorses, and exotic pets that require medical care from a licensed veterinarian. 

Prospective students should note that they must earn their degree in veterinary science in-person due to the hands-on nature of the role, and may need to pursue graduate school and participate in professional observation with a licensed veterinary practice before entering the workforce full-time. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports about 5,000 veterinary roles statewide with many jobs in the Houston and Dallas metro areas.
