Usually 8. That's four years of college for your bachelors and four years in an accredited graduate school for veterinary medicine.

To my knowledge, you must have the two-year pre-veterinary program and a four-year veterinary program. That's six. Then there's at least three years in a residency program.

In the United States, the schools of veterinary medicine teach primarily in English, so you would need to be conversationally and scientifically fluent in written and spoken English.

Incidentally, the first modern school of veterinary medicine was founded in Lyon, France, so one could make the argument that veterinary medicine was taught in French and then translated into English.

Which online vet school is the best?

There are no online veterinary colleges - the skills you need to become a veterinary are too hands-on (performing a physical exam, evaluating lameness, etc.). If there is an online college claiming to offer degrees in veterinary medicine, that school is not accredited in the US. However, there are online veterinary technician schools; as a veterinarian I would caution any applicant to ensure the school is accredited through a credible third party organization and that there is sufficient hands-on and face-to-face teaching for you to learn the technical skills required of a veterinary technician.

What high school grades do you need for veterinary medicine in Canada?

The post-secondary educational system in Canada is very similar to the United States, particularly in regards to training in veterinary medicine. You would likely need fairly strong grades, particularly in math and science courses, to be accepted to a good undergraduate college to complete your pre-requisite classes before applying to vet school. I suspect a GPA of 3.0 or better would be ideal.
