SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Rewind about a month: I was watching cable news and there was a segment on issues with veterinarians. They had said that at least 50% of vets who work with large animals (specficially cattle, horses) are above the age of 50. There was an issue as in the near future there would be a major shortage of vets willing to work on large animals once the older ones retire. At the end of the segment they mentioned that there is a government proposal that would pay for a vets tuition costs while in vet school in exchange for working on large animals. I was just wondering if anyone has heard this before and whether there is any concrete plans other then a proposal. Thanks!
