Veterinarians
Description: Veterinarians care for pets, farm animals, zoo residents, and laboratory animals. They set broken bones, treat injuries, prescribe medicine, perform surgery, and vaccinate animals against diseases. They teach people how to care for animals. Most veterinarians treat animals in private clinics or hospitals and work 50 hours or more a week. They may work nights and weekends. Those treating large animals travel to farms or ranches to see their patients. A number of veterinarians engage in research.
