Veterinarians are doctors who provide healthcare for animals. Like all doctors, they diagnose, treat, and research a wide variety of medical conditions using advanced procedures and sophisticated medical equipment. Their patients are often household pets, but they can also be livestock, zoo and aquarium dwellers, wildlife, or any other non-human animals.
Preventing disease and healing animals that are sick or injured are at the heart of what veterinarians do. The work is varied and activities go well beyond vaccinations, sutures, setting fractured bones, and surgeries. For example, veterinarians are responsible for identifying and combating infectious diseases that can be passed from animals to humans. Their work may also involve biomedical research, education, public health policies, food safety regulations, and environmental protection. Learn about this exciting career today!
