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.
But did you know there are other specializations for veterinarians? Some veterinarians focus more on large animals, mostly farm animals. Large-animal vets often perform farm visits to do herd health checks or to treat a sick animal. These veterinarians often have a specialized truck, which holds medicines, equipment and other supplies necessary for these mobile services.
