Have you ever been asked the question, ‘What do you want to be when you grow up? You can decide what you want to do by understanding the kind of skills you have and the types of jobs that you love. If you’re good with (and enjoy) Math, you could be a scientist or a mathematician. Are you a water baby? Then, you could try your hand at being a professional scuba diver or a swimming instructor. But no matter what you choose, if you have the skill-set associated with it and if you have a genuine passion for it, then you will be good to go. This International Day of Veterinarians, let’s take a look at what a vet does.
What Do Vets Do?
Human beings are not the only creatures that fall sick and require care. Animals, too, fall ill, get injured and require medical care and attention. Vets are doctors specifically trained to treat animals.
Vets diagnose sick animals and prescribe medication and treatment to help them heal. They administer vaccinations and immunizations, heal injuries and provides surgeries if required. If required, they provide dental treatment for animals with faulty teeth! They can also offer advice on how to take better care of your animals and livestock.
What Are the Different Kinds of Vets?
Vets are not of just one kind. Farm Vets typically treat farm animals and livestock. Some are trained solely in treating and diagnosing horses–Equine Vets. Exotic Animal Vets specialize in treating exotic and rare birds and animals. Sometimes, we need better scientific techniques and discoveries to help us understand animals better. Laboratory Vets don’t work directly with the animals but rather in labs to do just that!
