Helping animals is the best professional career one can choose and it is also a very beneficial one. To devote your life to treating animals suffering from experienced traumatic injuries and chronic illnesses must be such a good feeling. I would not think twice before swapping my job with being a vet. I can imagine how fun it would be for Vets to be surrounded by loving animals all day long and treat them like the good angles they are. It can also be a very challenging and stressful job because having animals as patients is a lot more difficult to deal with than humans and if you don’t know what you’re doing, it can be very hectic. They can not tell us their pain, where they are hurt and what exactly happened to them. So, more power to you veterinarians.
Today we pay tribute to all vets out there doing their best to help relieve animals from any kind of pain, be it physical or mental. You guys are doing a great job and setting a great example for everyone. Teaching us humanity and how to be kind. Scroll down, we have gathered a great collection of pictures of wholesome moments encountered at the clinic by vets who can not help but take pictures of the cute creatures.

The doctor of veterinary medicine and CEO of Veterinary Integration Solutions, Ivan Zak explained what it is like to devote one’s life to animals and become a veterinarian. Ivan has practised veterinary medicine for 12 years until he experienced severe burnout which led him to explore a whole different side of his profession, psychological triggers of burnouts and business methodologies that veterinary organizations can apply to work against them. After his thorough research on this topic, he obtained an MBA degree in International Healthcare Management. Now, Ivan is leading Veterinary Integration Solutions (VIS). It is a business consulting company that helps veterinary groups implement an operating framework for sustainable integration of practices, it also ultimately empowers the healthcare team to live their passion.
When asked what it is like being a vet, Ivan replied, “Being a veterinarian, no day is the same,”. He explained that not everything is exactly cute and picture-perfect as it might seem, with this profession comes a lot of complicated challenges that they have to face often. “There is a lot of stress, unpredictability, and long hours. A less obvious and frustrating challenge is accepting that not every pet owner will be able (or willing) to do everything for their animal.”
Ivan said that “Veterinary care can be expensive when you don’t have pet insurance, and veterinarians often find themselves in moral dilemmas when they can’t do what’s best for the animals because their clients can’t afford it,” He added that he finds this aspect of being a vet probably the most difficult one. “The most rewarding part that makes up for all of it is being able to apply your skills and experience to get to the bottom of a problem and diagnose a patient. An animal can’t tell you where it hurts, so connecting and being able to help is one of the most fulfilling parts of being a veterinarian.”
Ivan has a piece of advice for you if you are planning on choosing veterinary as your career, he reminds you that, “it’s a long and challenging path with many milestones to work toward: a bachelor’s degree, veterinary school admission, a veterinary degree—perhaps specialty certification. These are clear objectives that help maintain focus, so don’t lose that North Star once you get your license and go into practice.”
He suggests that “If you don’t set new goals, the motivation and passion that initially brought you into the profession will quickly fade away in the daily routines,”
Here is another tip from Ivan “to develop soft skills: communication, problem-solving, positivity. A day as a veterinarian can be very stressful, and you will really need that dexterity dealing with clients when they are frustrated. Most veterinarians choose their profession because they want to help animals, but talking to pet parents is a big part of it, too.”
