    Would you be willing to work with animals in a lab setting? It wouldn't necessarily involve invasive procedures, but I know it's not something everyone would be comfortable with. If it's something you're willing to do, it can be a good career for people, and there are often opportunities for progression. Also, if you find you are interested by the research their are often opportunities to do a masters or PhD as well.

    A lot of people who go into this type of career will study a subject like Animal Behaviour and Welfare or Zoology at uni and gain experience with lab work while at uni through studentship projects and/or their dissertation.
