Job Description for Veterinarian

A veterinarian performs a wide variety of services related to animal health; the work is usually done at a private practice, though it can occur at a facility such as an animal care and control center or a zoo. Some common services that are performed by veterinarians are check ups, vaccinations, administering medicine, spaying and neutering, and other surgeries. For veterinarians who work with pets, the veterinarian communicates regularly with owners on how to best provide care and discusses any needed services such as surgery or medication. Preventative care is an important part of the job to ensure long-term animal health. Other services may be offered by the facility where the veterinarian practices (such as grooming), and though veterinarians do not typically perform these services, they may recommend them. A veterinarian also has management duties, overseeing assistants who help them carry out some tasks.
