Veterinarians are best known for healing ill and injured animals, but helping all kinds of creatures live longer, better lives is not all that veterinarians do.
For instance, as more and more links are being found between human and animal diseases, such as SARS, mad cow disease, West Nile virus and avian flu, among others, veterinarians are working alongside other medical professionals in public health and research.
