A veterinarian (American English) or a veterinary surgeon (British English), often shortened to vet, is a physician for animals (excluding humans) and a practitioner of veterinary medicine. The word comes from the Latin veterinae meaning "working animals". "Veterinarian" was first used in print by Thomas Browne in 1646.[1] Many careers are open to those with veterinary degrees (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, D.V.M.) or B.V.Sc. & A. H. (Bachelor of veterinary science and animal husbandry)

Degrees differ by country.

Training differs by country, with the average being six years. In many countries, two degrees must be completed.
