Emergency Vets... no, not the TV show.
CNN put up an article about emergency vets. It's a short, fairly light read but interesting none the less. A few vets are interviewed about what some of their more memorable patients, how their days normally progress and why they do it. Alongside the article is a sidebar of various schools and colleges that teach vetinary medicine. If you're interested in going into the vetinary field give it a skim and then check out some of the schools that are listed. Some, such as the University of Minnesota, are very well known for their courses. Others might come as a surprise. There's also an online survey, which I found to be very oddly worded, that you might like to take.
