Veterinarians a.k.a. animal doctors, are people who take care of sick animals, just like how doctors diagnose human health conditions and treat them. The word veterinarian comes from the Latin veterinae meaning “working animals”, and almost 80% of practicing veterinarians are females. In certain situations, vets can have very dangerous jobs! No matter how well behaved an animal can be, there is no way of telling what can happen on that veterinary exam table. Statistically speaking, more than half of all vets will get seriously injured in their line of work!
