Hello everyone. I am very new to the whole veterinary scene. I am a freshman in college and have recently started considering becoming a vet. I have always been interested in medicine and I love animals so I feel like it would be a very good job for me. I just have a few questions about it. What is the lifestyle of a vet compared to that of a physician? And is the lifestyle of a general vet any different than the lifestyle of a vet specialist? Also I can not seem to find much info on salaries of vets so what is the average salary for a general and a specialist? I also am not sure if I could handle euthanasia so are there any specialties that do not do euthanasia? Thank you everyone who replies to this! I am very confused about what career to pursue so the answers to these questions will really help a lot.
