Vet shortages

Farm animal veterinarian numbers decline.

As the title suggests, farm animal vets are those who work with food animals and horses. It’s a sometimes messy and back-breaking line of work, with uncertain hours and often many weeks of on-call time.

There’s also a belief that farm animal vets make less money than vets who specialize in pets such as dogs and cats. These small-animal vets are also more likely to work regular hours, and are more likely to own their own business.

Another striking difference in the two specialties is that farm animal vets have to travel – sometimes great distances – to see their patients, while small animal vets generally wait for the patients to come to them
