Clearly by the title its obvious my profession of choice. However, my father is a veterinarian and has been for over 25 yrs. I've worked off and on in his practice for a long time and have been a regular employee the past 5 months. I can honestly say w/ everything i've seen throughout my life...that vets are HIGHLY underrated and grossly underpaid (on the average). I have nothing but huge amounts of respect for what veterinarians do..and while I chose a different path...it's still just as important, difficult, and respectable as other medical professions. I think its bogus that vets get the rep of being an "easier" medical profession. Makes me sick when I hear people say this. Bottom line...you guys are awesome in my book...and Vets perform a service that only a few people have the capability of doing. Much love to all you guys! best of luck!
