Statistics show that over 78,000 veterinarians operate in the United States. Also known as a veterinary physician or simply "vet," a veterinarian is a professional who performs medical services for animals.
Like doctors, veterinarians focus on treating and preventing illnesses and injuries. The difference between a veterinarian and doctor, however, is that the former specializes in animal healthcare, whereas the latter specializes in human healthcare.

Veterinarians offer a variety of healthcare services for their animal patients. Many veterinarians, for example, offer vaccinations for puppies.
During the first couple months of a new puppy's life, he will need a few sets of vaccinations to protect against various types of infection illness. Puppies have a weaker immune system than full-grown dogs, so infection-causing germs are more dangerous to them.
The vaccination services offered by veterinarians, however, will strengthen a puppy's immune system while lowering the risk of infectious illness in the process. And while most of their patients consist of dogs and cats, veterinarians offer services to all types of animals, including reptiles, birds, horses, sheep, cows and more.
Of course, veterinarians offer more than just puppy vaccinations. They perform a broad range of services, including annual checkups, teeth cleaning, de-worming, blood analysis and more.
Some veterinarians will even perform house calls if an owner is unable to bring his or her animal. Large animals like cows are often difficult to take to a local veterinary office, so the veterinarian visits the cow's barn or pasture to perform the service.
