Population of the whole world is increasing with a great pace. It has become difficult for farmers to feed all the people so the cattle farming and poultry industry have become profitable business.

DVM Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Subjects, Eligibility, Career & Scope

Institutions of Veterinary education specially veterinary assistant institutions are also increasing and these are too places of employment for veterinary doctors. Government Veterinary hospitals also hire DVM doctors. But scope of private practice is also very good. Many students under rate this degree but its their wrong approach due to prejudices. O.K if you do not agree with me then tell me one thing that who are more in number animals or humans. Of course animals are many times more than humans and they need also need medical care. Those students who want to become MBBS or BDS doctors to serve humanity must remember that by treating the animals you can do this too as they are the second largest source of food for humans after agriculture products. Our religion Islam also lays great stress on rights of animals. Remember the hadith of Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) in which he said that Almighty Allah forgave a bad women due to her good behavior with an thirsty cat.

There are large cattle farms in USA, Australia, North America, Holland and many other Western countries so there is a great chance of finding a job in these countries after graduation in Veterinary Medicine. But in such case it will be better for you to get post graduation degree in your field for finding a suitable job in Western countries. In our country many veterinary doctors are treating humans too which is not a recommended at all. But i know a DVM doctor of my village who has also got a four years diploma in Homeopathy and in his clinic he also treats the general public with homeopathic medicines. A friend of mine did MBA after DVM and now he is running his own fish, poultry and cattle farm in just 2 acres rural area and earning a lot of money as in his farm office he is doing private practice too. Some doctors open Veterinary medical stores and disease diagnosis labs too with their clinic. So as far as scope of any degree is concern it largely depends upon your skill, commitment with your work and creativity.
