Answers to all your veterinary questions

The definition of a veterinarian is a professional who treats diseases, disorders, and injuries in animals. This includes diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care. The individual veterinarian’s scope of practice, specialty, and experience determine exactly what procedures they perform, but most perform surgery.

Once a veterinarian graduates, they are licensed to treat all animals. However, some veterinarians receive additional training to specialize in certain animals such as birds or large animals.

It can be difficult to decide if a pet needs to see a vet, especially since it can be traumatic for your pet to travel, and weekend and late-night issues create special problems. The veterinary experts on askonlinevets.com are always available to provide diagnosis, guidance and advice.
