The supply-demand relationship for qualified veterinarians in the U.S. from 1985 to 2005 indicated that the field is grossly under-supplied. Though people have been graduating from veterinary colleges, the requirement supersedes the supply. Doctors that cater to illnesses of human beings are in plenty and so are training institutes for them that are dispersed across […]

A Practice But A Lifestyle Too
Veterinary Medicine Is Not Just
Not every veterinary blog will be as informative as you would want it to be. Many happen to be plagiarised content collated from various websites and journals as-it-is.
My blog, as you will find, is a total opposite: it’s a clear indication of the deep love I, Joanne Doe, have for animals, and every bit of information picked up from my research material has been duly credited via links to the original source. I spend an average 6 to 8 hours daily researching veterinary medicine and animal behaviour so that I may be able to publish a blog that is not only educative but informative and interesting to read as well.
Animal lovers will find veterinary medicine to be an interesting career that is rewarding and popular. Though the study involved thereof is tiresome, the rewards you reap are certainly attractive and worth the sweat. If you are wondering as to why you ought to spend so many gruelling years in pursuit of a veterinary medicine […]
Those who have had pets are sure to know, by now, that animals can have anaemia. The disease is life-threatening and it comes in varying degrees in different animals. The severity of the same is what dictates whether the affected animal can have a blood transfusion or not. Other than anaemia, there are other diseases […]
By now, we have well understood that animal blood banks work in a similar manner to those of human beings. Any injured animal is required to be taken to the blood bank facility so as to ascertain whether it requires blood transfusion so as to save its life. Blood banks serve a number of areas […]
Blood transfusion for animals has to be authorized by a certified veterinary doctor before permission is granted to access the blood bank. There are various blood banks spread across a myriad of states in the U.S. Most of them operate as non-profit institutions.
The Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges asserts that the nation has a mere 30 vet schools where over 3,000 students graduate every year. It is not easy to be admitted in a school of veterinary medicine. Medical students in the U.S. are many, but this specific field requires rigorous vetting and high grades for one to be considered a bona fide student of any vet college.

Veterinarians are highly trained professionals whose main work involves taking care of the health and well-being of animals of all kinds. Vet doctors make use of problem-solving skills and in-depth knowledge of biological, social, and physical sciences to be able to perform the correct diagnosis. The proper diagnosis makes it possible to treat and further prevent the spread of contagious diseases from one animal to another.
Veterinarians also ensure that our environment is clean and free from any disease causing agents as some animal diseases can be transferred onto humans, if people are not careful and if the diseases are not treated well and in time. The profession however becomes more complicated if the practitioners do not have a place from where they can gather additional knowledge.
A Pathway for Veterinarians to Practice
Veterinarians in the United States undergo rigorous vetting and testing before they can be confirmed to be ready for veterinary medicine practice. This is because the federal government takes the course with deadly seriousness since there are very few veterinary doctors who have world-class training.
In order to avoid disappointments in the field, the government has established various pathways to be passed by those who have interest in the course. Foreigners who desire to practice veterinary medicine in the United States, however, have a different program that they have to go through. One cannot practice directly if they have not been trained as per the guidelines of the U.S. government.
