10 myths that people think about Vets!

Vets are only in the game for the money, are not dedicated to the job and have set hours? This week, we are back to dispel myths about vets!

  1. All animals appear to be the same to them.

Every animal is different with a different tale to tell.

  1. Vets have a bad memory.

Definitely not the case- Many vets can remember particular animals that they treated years ago.

  1. They are bad timekeepers.

This one may cause a small fry, but one must remember to take into consideration that their days are jam-packed and unpredictable too.

  1. Vets are not dedicated to their job.

Those 4am calving cases put that myth to bed.

  1. They are only in the game for the dosh.

We are pretty sure that there are easier ways to make a few founds!

  1. Vets are never at the other end of the phone.

There are on speed dial, available 24-hours in many cases. Always there when the ‘bed’ is out or when you’re ‘stuck at the hips’.

  1. They aren’t skilled individuals.

From performing caesarean sections to surgery, vets prove that they can throw their hand to anything.

  1. Vets are not experts in their field.

After studying an intensive undergraduate degree and claiming their ‘Dr.’ title, of course, they know their stuff.

  1. The outcome of the case does not impact them and is only a concern of the farmer/pet owner.

This isn’t the case! After spending some time treating the animal, vets are just as hopeful as the farmer/pet owner that the animal will make a full recovery when struck down with an illness etc.

  1. Vets work set hours.

That doesn’t happen with a 24-hour way of life!
