Disciplinary Literacies Paper Mike Moffat WRA 150 Imagine one of your pets is in need of help, and you know that the only person that can help them is your local veterinarian, and as you take them there, you wonder what exactly a veterinarian consists of. Well, a veterinarian by definition is a type of doctor who treats animals and helps them in many different ways. The kinds of species that veterinarians can choose to work on are endless. It all depends on preference from the very beginning though. A student can decide to work with the normal household pets including cats, dogs, and “pocket pets,” which include hamsters, guinea pigs, and many others small animals. Another option is to work with large animals which mainly include horses and cows. Then, the last types are the exotic animals, which are the toughest to work with, but this includes all different types of animals that could range from alligators to tigers. When deciding to become a veterinarian, you have many choices with the animals you want to work with; it’s just all up to you. Many different factors influenced me to decide to become a veterinarian. I thought about having this job ever since I was a little kid. I don’t know what it was, but I was just so fascinated with animals and when I would watch shows where they are in trouble, all I thought to myself was “I want to help them as quickly and efficiently as possible.” I didn’t use big words like that when I was little, but I wanted to help them so badly that I made it my long term goal to go to college and make sure that when I finish, I can go on to become a veterinarian and live my dream. Another reason that helped contribute to my dream to become a vet was my interactions with animals. Our family first got a pet when I was seven years old when we got a cat. We named it Callie and I played with her every day when I was little. I loved being around her and then as time progressed and as I thought more about the job, I would study the cat’s habits and watch her. In addition, anytime I went over my friends’ houses they would have pets too, and anytime I

went to their house, I would get along with their pets. So, as years went on, it made me realize that this job was made for me and now all I would need is my full commitment and to get into the right school to accomplish this. But each person has their own reasons to want to become a vet; mine started when I was young and I have stayed committed to becoming one. First is what it takes to become a veterinarian through a Professor’s point of view. I interviewed Dr. Abood at Michigan State’s University Veterinary Medical Center. She had a Ph. D in Animal Nutrition, and a DVM. The average starting salary that a vet would make is primary when talking about the profession. She said that graduates start at $60-65 thousand while anyone who takes an internship at MSU; they can make about $25-35 thousand for their first year. Then, as time progresses the income goes up. Years of schooling for vet school are another important topic to

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
