Pet Owners and Veterinarians

Pets are living longer, healthier lives than ever before because they receive a higher level of care than in the past. Advanced techniques are becoming routine, and there is a shift to wellness care in veterinary medicine practiced today.

Wellness care addresses all aspects of health, from proper nutrition and exercise to regular veterinary care and grooming.

Many pet owners regard their pets as children and seek a very high level of care for them. In response to this demand, recent years have seen a tremendous rise in extremely specialized areas of veterinary medicine, including:

  • Toxicology
  • Lab Animal
  • Poultry
  • Theriogenology
  • Anesthesiology
  • Preventive Medicine
  • Cardiology
  • Oncology
  • Neurology
  • Pharmacology
  • Behavior
  • Dermatology
  • Emergency & Critical Care
  • Internal Medicine
  • Microbiology
  • Nutrition
  • Ophthalmology
  • Pathology
  • Preventive Medicine
  • Radiology
  • Surgery
  • Zoological
  • Dentistry

Today’s veterinarians are able to respond to the needs of pet owners by combining excellent healthcare with great warmth and empathy for our pets. This has resulted in a high degree of loyalty to veterinarians by pet owners, who display a low propensity to change veterinarians.

Veterinarians play an increasingly important role in our lives as caregivers to the animal members of our families.
