What Does a Veterinarian Do?

Large Animal Vet

Most of us think of veterinarians as being the medical caregivers for our pets, and that’s a true statement: Small-animal veterinarians represent more than 65 percent of all vets nationwide.

Those pet owners should bring their animals to a vet once a year for an annual checkup and necessary shots. But performing these check-ups is part of a small-animal veterinarian’s daily routine.

These veterinarians often have a specialized truck, which holds medicines, equipment and other supplies necessary for these mobile services.
