What does a Veterinary do?
A Veterinary is responsible for taking care of the health of the animals. Their main job is to take care of the animals who are sick. Animals can’t speak as humans do so it can be a difficult task to find the problem and then treat them. The health of the animals and humans concerned with them must not be compromised.
