Veterinarians diagnose and treat pets and animals on farms, ranches, zoos, racetracks and laboratories. They prescribe medication, vaccinate animals and educate owners on general care. They dress wounds, perform surgery and operate medical equipment, such as x-ray machines. They can also euthanize animals that are beyond help. Veterinarians are often called by their animal specialties. For example, equine veterinarians handle horses, research veterinarians work in laboratories and food animal veterinarians inspect livestock.
