Does Your Child Want to Become a Vet? (Sponsored Guest Post)

Being a veterinarian is an incredibly beautiful, challenging, and rewarding career choice. If your child wants to follow the path of an animal vet, then the best thing you can do to help is encourage them to attend a vet camp.
What’s better for an aspiring veterinarian than a week-long, hands-on training camp at Auburn University? They’ll learn everything they need to know to get a true feeling of what being a vet is like in the modern workplace.
Junior high students, including those who will be entering this year, will be able to follow specific programs that’ll drive their passion for animals further while also understanding the realities of the job. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience that any future vet shouldn’t pass up!

What are the Benefits of this Vet Camp Contest?
The three contestants who win the grand prize will have their entire stay paid for. This includes housing, meals, and payments required for the education. While normally this would cost thousands of dollars, your child could have it all for free!
Everyone loves animals, but it takes a special person to work with them during hard times. If you truly believe that your child has what it takes, then have them apply for the possibility of taking massive leaps and bounds towards their goal.
Auburn University is one of the most well-known schools in the country with a vet program, which is another reason why this can’t be passed up! However, such a perfect opportunity wouldn’t be possible without the help of Royal Canin and the people at Vet Set Go.

Who is Royal Canin?
Royal Canin is a pet company that focuses their efforts on the bettering of animal lives around the world. From their nutritionally-packed foods to their constant push for animal rights, protection, and love, this company is working for animals of the past, present, and future.
We all know that veterinarians play an irreplaceable role in the lives of our beloved pets, as well as wildlife in all environments. In order to ensure the health and wellness of animals as long as possible, they’re willing to cover the costs of such an educational trip.

How to You Can Enter
Prior to applying, make sure your child is entering 6th through 8th grade during the Fall of 2019. These are the only available years for entry.
To apply, your child must write up to 300 words describing why they want to attend the vet camp. Be sure that they include personal experiences with animals, the reason(s) why they love animals so much, how they’ve helped animals in the past or present, and why they want to learn how to become a vet.

Finally, snap a picture of them with their favorite animal as a testament to their friendship! Submit the application yourself once your child is finished, as an adult of 18+ years must accompany a child during the application process.
That’s it, you’re all set! Good luck, and don’t forget to encourage your child to pursue their dreams of becoming a veterinarian!


  1. I don't think I'd have the stomach to be a vet. Seeing hurting animals just aren't something I can handle - no matter how much I love them.

  2. This is such a great idea! I'm going to pass it along to my nieces and nephews, who have children that might be interested.

    1. I think it is a great idea too, thanks for passing it on!

  3. My niece who is college age now wants to be a vet. I was sad to see only 6th - 8th graders can enter. She really wants to be a vet and loves animals. Maybe therer will be a contest like this for people her age(19 years old).

    1. You never know, but I bet they assume that by 19 they are usually already in college. Maybe she could look for an internship at a Veterinary practice?

  4. I met a young man years ago that wanted to be a vet and when I read this post I wondered if he grew up to be a vet. I'm guessing he did.

    Have a purrfect day, Cody. My best to our brother and your mom. ♥

  5. That is very cool! I know someone who wants to be a vet, but she's too old for this age group or else I'd share this with her.

  6. Very helpful. Emma's birfday/Gotcha Day is March 30th.

  7. This is a wonderful idea. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Dad says he is so jealous as he would enter the contest in a second.
    Good luck to all the kids

  9. That really is super cool and I know the winners will be thrilled!

  10. What a great opportunity for a kid who wants to be a vet!

  11. My great niece is 4 and already wants to be a vet. She has a Doc Mcstuffin kit she always plays with :)

  12. What a great opportunity this is!
