I found this and thought it was interesting. If anyone is unclear about what veterinarians do and how one even gets to the point of being a veterinarian-here it is stated clearly:
This is particularly awesome for me:
"Employment change. Employment of veterinarians is expected to increase 33 percent over the 2008–18 decade, much faster than the average for all occupations. Veterinarians usually practice in animal hospitals or clinics and care primarily for small pets. Recent trends indicate particularly strong interest in cats as pets. Faster growth of the cat population is expected to increase the demand for feline medicine and veterinary services, while demand for veterinary care for dogs should continue to grow at a more modest pace."
I will be posting at some point about my road to this point, most of my family and friends know it, but if there are people who don't know me out there reading this-you may find it interesting!
