What types of animals do Vets treat?
The majority of veterinarians actually treat small domestic animals such as pet dogs, pet cats, along with some of the slightly more exotic pets such as reptiles, birds and rabbits, guinea pigs etc. Not altogether surprising really as the majority of people live in towns and cities where space for larger animals is limited.
It is said that about 20 percent of vets work with larger animals such as horses, cattle, pigs and sheep. Whilst an even smaller percentage of vets will specialise in the more exotic wild animals that you might find in a zoo for example.picture sourced from Wikipedia the free encyclopedia
Have you ever considered being a Vet?
What can a Vet expect to earn?
This can vary quite extensively, being largely dependant on the hours you put in to it and the nature of animals that you care for. As you become more experienced as a veterinarian, build a robust client base, and broaden your knowledge, you would expect to earn more.
Recent figures for vets earnings suggest that newly qualified vets might expect to earn between $50,000 and $70,000 per year. With more experienced vets earning between $60,000 and $100,000 per year.
