I want to become a vet but since my mom hates animals and thinks they're dirty, how do I convince her?

I'm not saying how old I am, but I'll say that I'm planning for the future. I REALLY want to become a vet, but my mom wants me to become a Doctor. (I'm pretty sure I can become one if I want to) Anyways, she says that why mess with animals? They're dirty and smelly, but I'm an ANIMAL LOVER! So how do I convince her? *10 POINTS FOR BEST ANSWER! :)

Why do you need to convince her? It's not her decision to make, whether you choose to become a Veterinarian or a Trash Collector, it's really your decision to make, not someone else's.

what does it matter what your mom thinks? Be what YOU want to be. She cant force you to go to medical school.
