The two main roles within veterinary science are a veterinary surgeon, or a veterinary nurse.
Nurses are an incredibly important part of any vets and help to keep everything up and running efficiently. You may be responsible for preparing theatres for operations, assisting the vet within the procedures or caring for animals post-surgery. It’s a fast-paced environment that will see you working closely with animals every day.
Vets must obtain a Veterinary Medicine degree and are responsible for the diagnoses and treatments for sick animals, alongside surgeries and administering medicine.
Unfortunately, animals can be sick at any time of the day which means that work in this industry is often shift-based. You may also take turns being on-call and have to travel to visit sick animals.
It’s not just domestic pets that you could be working with through a career in veterinary science. You could also be helping farm and zoo animals, who often require specialist care.
