      How to Answer

      To be a vet you obviously need to have an interest and love of animals. This question is likely to be used as an icebreaker to an interview, to put you at ease and start the conversation flowing. There is no assessment or grading to this answer so be honest.

      "Personally I have a massive love for giraffes! As an animal, they amaze me, so graceful in the way they move and behave. The sheer size of them is unreal, and I have always had an interest in them. They are my number one animal for sure."

      Dolphins are fascinating animals! Have you ever worked with them, or do you have any plans to work alongside dolphins in the future?

      "I would have to say horses are my favourite animals, they are such interesting animals and although they require a lot of care, this is one of the reasons why I love them. My horse can have a very neurotic temperament, however, he is very gentle, and the bond we have created is unbreakable."

      Rachelle's Answer

      Horses are amazing and very loyal companions. Good response :)

      "I have two favorite animals, both for the same reason. They are the arctic fox and bees. I love them because although they are small, they are highly talented, intelligent, and have extraordinary talent and power. Arctic foxes appear cute but are ruthlessly intelligent predators that can survive the harsh extremes of the arctic. Bees work powerfully in teams to be the center of the ecosystem, allowing our environment to thrive and also to produce a beautiful end product - honey."

      Rachelle's Answer

      Terrific answer. Both examples are engaging, memorable, and your genuine interest shines through. Well done :)

      "My favorite animal is a feline. I have recently gotten a kitten, and observing her various mannerisms is so fascinating. Cats have a sense of superiority, which is not found in many other creatures. Each cat has an entirely different personality, which determines their actions. I find it fascinating how their body systems work as well, for example, their ability to dissolve their teeth."

      Rachelle's Answer

      This is very interesting! You learn something new every day :) Your answer gives the interviewer some insight into your personal life as well, which is nice.

      "The elephant is my favorite animal. Elephants demand respect for their enormous size and kind eyes. They are brilliant animals, and I find their brains fascinating. They have amazing memories and have proven to be very talented. They are emotional and social animals, and I have always loved studying their gestation period."

      Rachelle's Answer

      Very good answer - so many reasons to love elephants. Your response shows a true care for animals.
