Sample Veterinarian Cover Letter

A veterinarian cover letter should include one's educational background, such as training and a college degree from a university, as well as experience working in an animal shelter or hospital. Vets treat sick and injured animals in the clinic or hospital. They also prevent problems by giving vaccinations, checking teeth, and doing regular health check-ups. Therefore, veterinarian cover letters should mention all of the above, as shown in the following letter.

Dear Dr. Anderson:

I saw your ad on JobBankUSA.com for a veterinarian to assist you in your private practice. I am interested in applying for that position and that is the purpose for this cover letter.

I graduated from Palo Verde Veterinary School in June 2005 and have worked part-time since then in a vet office near school. Now I am relocating to your city and would like to begin full-time employment in the career of my dream.

Well-trained veterinarians are needed and I'm proud to be called to this profession. It would be great to get started in your clinic under your supervision. May we meet in person to become acquainted and to see if we're a good match?

Please call me at 222-222-2222 anytime of the day to arrange an appointment that best fits your schedule.
