Veterinarian profession
A veterinarian holds a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from an accredited veterinary medical school. In general, veterinarians are trained to diagnose disease, predict outcomes, prescribe necessary treatment, and perform surgery on animals.
Veterinary educational costs
The cost of obtaining a veterinary degree can be substantial. Typically, students must complete about three to four years of undergraduate classes before being qualified to apply to a veterinary school.
