Many horse lovers entertain the idea of becoming an equine veterinarian. These licensed animal health professionals work closely with horse patients and their owners. A normal day is quite busy with a range of duties performed. This field of work has a good job outlook and a decent salary. Follow along with a real vet to see if this is the career path for you!

A typical day can include basic exams, routine vaccinations, suturing wounds, performing surgeries, assisting with foaling and taking x-rays. Some veterinarians like Dr. Grace Owen also do acupuncture and chiropractic work.

Each day offers something new! If you’re interested in seeing what a typical day can look like, then check out this video.
