Veterinarians identify and treat medical problems in animals. They treat injuries, set broken bones, perform surgery, prescribe medicines, and administer vaccinations. By these methods and by doing research, vets help to protect people from diseases carried by animals. The minimum requirement of most veterinary colleges is two years of a science undergraduate degree, but a bachelor’s degree is usually recommended.
