In order to become a homeopathic vet, there are several necessary steps that have to be taken and completed, including finishing a traditional four year college or university, attending postgraduate veterinary school, and participating in a homeopathy vet training certification course. It is required that all homeopathic veterinarians are trained and educated in conventional animal care before acquiring specialized training in homeopathic medicine. This type of alternative homeopathy practice features treating the animal as a whole, as most vets focus on the injury or illness alone. The homeopathic veterinarian will access to the injured or ill animal's physical symptoms as well as evaluate the animal's emotional state to ensure a correct diagnosis and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

The first step to become a homeopathic vet is to attend an accredited four year college or university. It is recommended that the student study an appropriate field of science, just as they would for a traditional veterinarian undergraduate program. Biology, chemistry, and animal anatomy and physiology are good major options for students who wish to study veterinary sciences. During the undergraduate phase, students can choose any university or college as long as its degrees are accredited.

In the next phase of homeopathy training, students take postgraduate courses with a focus on conventional vet studies, in depth anatomy and physiology, and classes in medical treatments and procedures. Students that wish to become a homeopathic vet can expect to spend a great deal of time performing lab experiments and lessons on a variety of different animal species. For most students, it normally takes about four years to complete this part of their education. At graduation, the student will receive a doctorate degree in veterinary medicine and will be prepared to begin vet practice and continue their education in the homeopathic field.

Once the postgraduate work is completed and the student is now a doctor of veterinary science, homeopathic studies can begin. It is important for the candidate to find coursework offered by an accredited institution, such as the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy in the United States. This specialized training typically takes about six months to complete. Eligible candidates are usually required to take a qualifying exam and submit at least four case studies before taking the final exam. Once all of the requirements have been completed successfully, the vet is allowed to practice holistic veterinary procedures and treatments, though further education is always encouraged.
