America's Favorite Veterinarian contest strives to recognize the work of veterinarians from all industries. Veterinarians keep our pets healthy, but do you know some of the other pivotal roles that veterinarians play in our society?
Veterinarians work to provide a safe, wholesome and abundant food supply for the health and well-being of humans. Veterinarians are protectors of our food supply to assure the safety and care of animals in food supply production.
Veterinarians that work with governmental agencies such as the United States Public Health Service or the US Military, work to control the transmission of animal-to-human (zoonotic) diseases, deliver public health programs around the world and go on humanitarian missions.
Veterinary college/school faculty members conduct research, teach veterinary students, and provide care for animals in the veterinary teaching hospital. Research veterinarians at universities are finding new ways to diagnose, treat, and prevent animal and human health disorders.
