Veterinarians have a special responsibility both within and for human society i.e. the protection of the health and welfare of both animals and humans. Veterinarians are not only responsible for animal health and welfare but also for monitoring the safety of the whole food chain from feed to food as well as for safeguarding public health in terms of zoonotic diseases. All this shows that veterinarians have a broad field of occupation. An excellent and thorough undergraduate training and the willingness to maintain life-long learning are the bases for a successful undertaking as a veterinarian.
