There is no one magic formula of personality, interests and skills that you need to be a veterinarian. In general, good communication skills and enjoying working with people helps (no dog ever came walking into a vet clinic by itself carrying a checkbook and asking to be examined). Also, good time management skills, good organization skills, interest in solving puzzles and investigating, and overall helpful personality can help.

I did become a veterinarian, so for me the answer would be yes. However, this is a tough question to answer - every veterinarian has a different career path and a different passion within the profession. In general, liking or loving animals and wanting to help them is not enough - you also need a scientific mindset, good self-management skills and a desire to solve problems and be the one in charge.

No, receptionists do not need a degree. They need communication skills and office skills. They are not involved in the medical care nor answering medical questions--those should be left to the veterinarian or veterinary technician. Receptionists will need some basic knowledge on preventative care recommendations but that information will be provided on the job as recommendations may vary from veterinarian to veterinarian.
