In the article “CAREERS: Veterinarian” I learned that a veterinarian is an animal doctor. Their job is to prevent and treat illnesses and injuries in animals. Their duties may include seeing and diagnosing animal patients, performing surgery, prescribing medications, giving vaccinations, and more. Also that a lot of education is required before you can become a veterinarian. A veterinarian’s job can be very rewarding. However, the job also comes with plenty of challenges. Being a vet can also take a huge mental toll. Vets struggle emotionally when they know that an animal is suffering and should be put to sleep, but the owner prefers to continue with treatment instead. 

Do you think veterinarians are as important as regular doctors?

I admire vets because it’s a very difficult job. People trust you to care for their pets. Pets can be a very important part of people’s families, and it’s in their hands to do their best to make them feel better while reassuring their owners that they are going to be okay.
