OP, I too was severely allergic to animal dander and at age 14, took up volunteer work at a no-kill cat shelter. I was sick for the first couple of months and did use a lot of allergy medicine, but after weekly work with the cats and eventually the adoption of my own cat, I am now almost completely immune to their dander.
You can still be a veterinarian. You'll find that the longer you're around animals, the less symptoms you will have. I'd still take an allergy medicine as backup--Allegra (prescription only) is pretty magical.
