Veterinarians diagnose medical problems, dress wounds, and set broken bones. They also perform surgery, prescribe medicines, and vaccinate animals against disease. Vets counsel owners about the care and feeding of animals and advise large animal owners about breeding. Livestock inspectors even test for disease and advise owners on special treatments.
