I'm a 19 year old pre-veterinary student interested in equine sports medicine. My best advice is that you should get good grades. Vet schools are harder to get into then medical schools.

You cant get expirience now. To become a vet u need to study hard. and get pretty much full marks in maths or english in vce and thats it.

If you can join 4H, that would be a good start at your age. anything you can do to get experience in animal related areas is a plus. When you are older, working with a veterinary clinic or shadowing a vet will help you. Anything you can do to add to earning top grades will benefit you.

I worked for an Equine Vet up at a ranch that I was living and also working on. She would come up and I would help her do Artificial Insemination's, Embryo transfers and so on.
