At the very heart of it, veterinarians love animals. And they don’t just work with cats and dogs; vets are needed at zoos and conservation centers, as well as for other domesticated animals like horses and iguanas.

Veterinarians have the chance to work with otters, tigers, and everything in between.

Quiz WriterChantelle

Chantelle took to the written word like a fish takes to water. That is to say, she found herself immersed in literature from before she was born. She’s been known to tell her friends all about how she can still remember the passages she heard her mother read to her when she was in the womb - Emily Dickinson, Jane Austen, and a bit of Hunter S. Thompson thrown in to balance it out. Whether she’s whipping up pithy one-liners to tease your brain or busy working on her second novel (the first one is available on Amazon under a pen name she refuses to disclose), Chantelle has continued to keep her feet wet with words, as it were. You’re sure to get a kick out of her giggle-worthy explanations and outrageous hints, and still come away feeling like you’ve just expanded your knowledge base.

Vets in history

The idea of veterinary medicine dates as far back as 9000 BC in the Middle East. Egypt expanded on basic knowledge and incorporated more of their medical skills. In 3000 BC in Mesopotamia, there was a man described as being “an expert in healing animals.” There continued to be individuals who had expertise in animal healing, but it didn’t become formally recognized until many years later.

A veterinary school was founded in Lyon, France in 1761 by Claude Bourgelat, and this was considered to be the official beginning of the veterinary science profession. The school focused on sheep, horse, and cattle diseases, as there was a plague affecting cows at the time. By 1791, London had its first veterinary school, and it focused on the health and well-being of animals. In 1883, the School of Veterinary Medicine was established, and it’s still in operation today.
