I always wanted to be a veterinarian. My college courses were built around that one goal. There is one class I cant seem to grasp the concept of and other snags along the way that have deterred me from my true goal. I am now looking into other career choices.

If you truly love animals and want to become a veterinarian you shouldn't let one class deter you from your goal. Other careers that help animals include a veterinarian assistant which is similar to a PA but with veterinary medicine. Don't get discouraged, keep up your hard work!
Obviously, veterinary medicine, at any level, is your starting point. There's research, zoo's, rescue centers, aquariums, national wildlife organizations, land management programs, and then there's sub fields within each one.
If you look at a large university's veterinarian curriculum, you might come across other degree options that will let you stay in the field, have a decent pay scale, and keep you in the preparation mode to circling back to that VET degree.
Having an interest in the welfare of animals is a noble practice and their are several career paths that you can follow. But it does involve research on your part and the best staring point would be to go to an office of a school that offers these career choices. After your diligent research, a career options will suddenly hit you, fascinate you, embrace you, and you will be eager to take that path.
