This document provides tips and recommendations for advisors to better help their pre-veterinary medicine students. After reviewing numerous resources and conducting a survey with GVSU advisors and pre-veterinary students, I identified gaps in knowledge and compiled tips and information about preparing for veterinary school to increase the advisors' knowledge for the benefit of current of future GVSU pre-veterinary students. This document discusses the general path of veterinary school, how to advise students on obtaining experiences, regional and national symposiums that students and advisors can attend, things to consider when preparing for and applying for veterinary schools, specific advice for students who may be harder to advise, and links to useful resources for both the advisors and students.

As an addition to this project, I reflected over the process, my feelings, and made comments about the biology department's pre-veterinary advising page.
