A more dedicated group of people you will never find.

I think the world of veterinarians.  I have had perhaps a dozen cats over the years and I rely on the vet to keep my pet happy and as healthy as possible. Each time I visit the vet's office I marvel at the dedication, competence and compassion demonstrated by everyone in the office.  These folks just seem to love what they do and I cannot imagine what animal lovers everywhere would do without them.

Things sure are different at the vets office these days.  Years ago veterinarians really were engaged in the business of treating sick and injured animals.  A noble calling for sure but today many vets also have a passion for holistic and preventive pet healthcare.  Although it is more expensive this proactive approach helps to ward off problems before they happen. And as a result our pets are living happier, healthier lives.

So the next time you bring your pet to the vet take a moment to acknowledge the tremendous work they do each and every day.  Sure there are incompetent and unethical vets out there and yes mistakes are made by even the best of them.  But at the end of the day I have found that most vets and their staffs do yeoman work and really do deserve our thanks and appreciation.    Very highly recommended!
A more dedicated group of people you will never find. A more dedicated group of people you will never find. A more dedicated group of people you will never find. A more dedicated group of people you will never find.

This is a nice tribute. I've always thought the vet that i take my dog to does such a great job with her and truly cares. I'm grateful for their skills and knowledge, because for so many of us our pets are like family. Thanks for sharing this!

Awww, yeah, you gotta hand it to veterinarians for keeping our little buddies healthy and happy. Though I'm still a bit weary on pet manicure and pedicures, and light therapy... :P Great review, Paul!

I guess I would qualify as a frustrated writer. My work requires very little writing and so since 1999 I have been writing reviews on non-fiction books and anthology CD's on amazon.com. I never could … more

About this topic


A veterinarian, often shortened to vet, is a physician for animals and a practitioner of veterinary medicine. The word comes from the Latin veterinae meaning "working animals". "Veterinarian" was first used in print by Thomas Browne in 1646.[1] Many careers are open to those with veterinary degrees (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, D.V.M.) VMD ( Veterinaria Medicina Doctoris ) or B.V.Sc. & A. H. (Bachelor of Veterinary Science and Animal Husbandry). Those working in clinical settings often practice medicine in a limited field such as "companion animal", pet medicine (small animals such as dog, cat, and pocket pets), production medicine or livestock medicine. Production medicine includes specialties in dairy cattle, beef cattle, swine, sheep, and poultry, equine medicine (e.g., sport, race track, show, rodeo), laboratory animal medicine, reptile medicine, or ratite medicine. Veterinarians may choose to specialize in medical disciplines such as surgery, dermatology or internal medicine, after post-graduate training and certification.

Some veterinarians pursue post-graduate training and enter research careers and have contributed advances in many human and veterinary medical fields, including pharmacology and epidemiology. Research veterinarians were the first to isolate oncoviruses, Salmonella species, Brucella species, and various other pathogenic agents. Veterinarians were in the fore-front in the effort to suppress malaria and yellow ...
