I Am a small animal GP veterinarian. AMA
I have seen a few ask reddit threads geared toward veterinarians but most of the comments are from pet owners, get techs, or friends/family of workers in the vet field so figured I'd offer this direct from a vet.
I'm a small animal general practice veterinarian in New England working at a family owned practice. This means I see cats, dogs, and most small mammals. I don't see reptiles, birds, or farm animals.
I've been out of school almost 5 years. I went to Tufts for vet school and before that did 4 years of undergraduate with a double major in chemistry and biology. Tufts trains vets in all aspects of veterinary medicine so south I haven't worked with farm animals or birds/reptiles I still had training with them. During my training I also did internships with a corporate vet practice, research animals, and zoo animals.
My main interests and continuing education had been focused in animal behavior, dentistry, and cat medicine
Ask me anything!
Edit: Thank you so much to everyone who participated! You guys have all given me more hope and appreciation for the amount of respect owners and the general population have for vets! I hope my answers were helpful but please always talk to your own vet about any questions as there is only so much advice I can give without knowing your pet's medical history and doing an exam. I'm going to try to get to the questions I missed over the next few days but this definitely blew up more than I expected. Thanks again!
