I study Biology, Psychology, Geography and Photography at A Level and i want to go on to a career in animals. I have been riding for 10 years and my love just grows for four legged creatures! however, i find a career with them is either too unrealistic for me (vet surgeon) or something not quite challenging enough (yard lass). I have recently been really attracted to Veterinary Physiotherapy and I'm keen about it as i thought i could open a business after my degree and also incorporate my photography and do both in one animal focused business.
However, I'm also looking for more information on Animal Science (equine) or Veterinary Nursing as i haven't looked into these two options as much as physiotherapy.
Can anyone studying these degrees or thinking about studying any of them help? any university or course recommendations and any related information would be really helpful

Sounds like you need some time to think about this, try different areas of work, and decide on the area of 'animals' that really interests you before rushing too fast into a UCAS application. Or if photography is actually what you want to do - with time to build a really good portfolio.
Remember - nowhere does it say you can only to go to Uni straight from school. Many, many people take several years (or longer) to decide that Uni is for them and to decide what to study and WHY they want to go.
Get a job, do an apprenticeship, do voluntary work at the RSPCA / a Racing Yard / a Photographers studio or whatever. None of this will stop you going to Uni later, and it will give you a chance to think about what/why first. All of it is experience and that will certainly strengthen your eventual application. Or you may find that you can do what you want to do without going to Uni at all.
