So it drives me nuts when people think: Vet school is just a simple two year jaunt that doesn't really count as school. (I can't tell you how many people I've had to explain that it's just like medical school--4 years, tough rotations, long nights studying for hard classes!) Vets are not as competent or well-trained as human docs. (Yeah, they should try working with patients that don't talk, hide how they're feeling, etc. And don't even get me started on the differences between species!) Vets can't do surgeries, place sutures, rx meds, etc. as well as MDs. Maybe I've just had a bad day at work or heard these too many times....anyone feel like I do?
