Veterinarians are trained physicians who deal with animal health. Veterinarians are also known as animal doctors. Veterinarians are knowledgeable in the aspect of animal anatomy and health disorders. Animal doctors undergo medical training just like human medical doctors. The veterinarians undergo formal education and earn the doctor title on completion of their course. Veterinarians are equipped to deal with both physical and psychological medical disorders in animals. Animal diseases that affect animals are diagnosed by the veterinarians. Veterinarians undertake surgical procedures on sick animals. They also offer injury treatment to animals. Animal doctors offer after-treatment care to patients that are in the process of getting well. The care offered to animals include nutritional care and physical exercise suitable for the stability of the animal’s health. Clients can request for washing and cleaning of their pets skins and fur, which can be done by the vets. Soaps and washing detergents manufactured specifically for the veterinary services are used when washing animals. The scrubbing brushes used by vets while cleaning animals are soft and gentle to the skins and fur of the animals. Medical history of sick animals is very essential in the determination of the disease of the animal and thus should be provided by the animal owner during every visit to the vet.
Animals are not verbal and should only be observed physically to help the vet figure out the disease or defect on the animal. Diagnosis process also involves medical tests in veterinary labs. Drugs prescribed and offered to the animal are administered to the animal by the vet or the owner of the animal. Healthy living of animals is encouraged by vets when they give nutritional advice and recommendations to the pet owners. Some vets sell animal feed to their clients and this helps to avoid the trouble experienced in trying to find the right animal feed in stores. Vets have designed clinics which are equipped with machinery and tools that are meant for the veterinary treatments. Clients with sick animals visit the vet clinics to receive medical diagnosis and prescriptions. Some animals cannot be taken to the vet clinics and the vets have to travel to the farms to treat the animals.
Emergencies happen and veterinarians should be ready to travel with their tools to the area of the emergency. Giving birth to young ones and bone fractures are some of the animal emergencies that can happen. The services of veterinarians can also be required in the animal parks to tame and treat wild animals. Vets have to be licensed to handle both domestic and wild animal health concerns.
