My dad is a veterinarian. He has
his own private clinic which he has worked very hard to get.
Dad had to go to college for eight years to earn his
degree. He is a small animal veterinarian, which means
he cares for household pets. Surgery, x-rays, and
exams keep Dad very busy. Most of his patients are cats and
dogs. Occasionally he cares for ferrets, pot-bellied pigs,
and even injured wildlife.
All veterinarians have to have a great
love for animals. They have to have great powers of
observation, because animals can't talk. There are other
kinds of veterinarians too! Those that work in research
laboratories develop vaccines and medicines that can save millions
of human and animal lives. Others work in government
services. They inspect meat, poultry, eggs, and
butter. Veterinarians in the military, care for the animals
used by the armed forces.
