Do you love animals? So do veterinarians! Veterinarians are doctors for animals. They examine and care for animals, give them vaccinations and treat their illnesses.
The veterinarians that you may be familiar with often care for cats and dogs, but vets can also treat birds, horses, reptiles, farm animals and zoo animals!
Veterinarians can care for animals in different ways. Many examine and treat pets in animal hospitals, while others work in big specialty hospitals where they see animals who are having a medical emergency or who have a problem that requires extra care. Other veterinarians work on farms, in zoos, at vet schools or in laboratories.
Did you know there are vets who specialize in the skin (dermatologists), the heart (cardiologist), x-rays (radiologists), the brain (neurologists) and more? Just like doctors for people!
