ANIMAL HEALTH IN A MODERN WORLD

The majority of Veterinarians in the UK work in private practices.  Working days are often long and the work environment can be loud and noisy.  Some veterinarians specialise in farm care and may spend a great deal of time traveling to care for animals.  There are also some Veterinarians who work exclusively in research or food safety and inspection.

As a Veterinary Assistant, some of the duties you can expect include record keeping, cleaning offices and exam rooms, cleaning veterinarians’ instruments, performing animal x-rays and giving medication to animals. You may also be responsible for caring for sick animals, including those that have just had surgery.

A Veterinary Technologist performs some of the same jobs as a Veterinarian. It is the same relationship as Nurses have with Physicians.  A Veterinary Technologist is responsible for performing routine laboratory work and procedures, such as taking and testing blood samples. The Technologist assists the Veterinarian in diagnosing and treating animal diseases. Other duties may include vaccinating animals and euthanising severely ill or injured animals.

Animal Care and Service Workers are responsible for basic care of animals including training, bathing, feeding, cleaning and disinfecting cages, and exercising animals. Places where you can expect to find employment as an “Animal Care Service Worker” include pet stores, veterinary hospitals or clinics, kennels, stables, aquariums and zoos to name a few.

ANIMAL HEALTH AND WELFARE

Animal Health is a concept from the Agricultural Science sector that ensures that farm animals are healthy, free from diseases and well catered for.  Animals play very significant roles in the lives of people and communities through being livestock for food production and pets for companionship.

Animal welfare refers to the state of the animal.  The treatment that an animal receives is covered by other terms such as animal care, animal husbandry, and humane treatment.  Protecting an animal’s welfare means providing for its physical and mental needs.
