If working with ‘normal’ animals isn’t your thing, there is always the possibility of working with a some more unusual species!
The poultry industry is massive within the UK, and this means that several vets are required to oversee the health and welfare of these birds. It is not your ‘typical’ career, but if you find at vet school that you have a passion for poultry, there are a few specialist poultry vet practices in the UK which you could work for! If poultry aren’t for you, why not consider working as a specialist pig vet?
Believe it or not, you could even become a specialist in fish! Fish vets are important for helping aquaculture producers, performing routine and investigatory site visits across farmed species and production systems. They are vital to maintaining fish quality and maintaining biosecurity (measures to reduce risk of transmission of disease).
Of course, there is the option to be a vet in the zoo! Once you have your degree in Veterinary and have worked in general domestic practice for several years, you can then complete a postgraduate course to work as a zoo vet. This will then train you for a career in a zoo, where you will care for and treat a wide range of species. Vets are essential to conservation programmes and maintaining the health and welfare of all kinds of animals that are kept in zoos.
You could work in an abattoir - in the UK every animal that is slaughtered must have an ante-mortem inspection before it is killed to ensure they are fit for human consumption, that disease risk is low and that their health and welfare has been preserved until the time of death.
Travel abroad! There are so many places that you can work as a vet.
