Why should you become a veterinarian?
One of the greatest benefits of a career in veterinary medicine, such as a veterinary pathologist, is the chance to promote the health and welfare of your patients. You also have the ability to relieve the suffering of animals that have experienced traumatic injuries or chronic illnesses.
How is it imortant?
Veterinary Science is vital to the study and protection of animal production practices, herd health and monitoring spread of widespread disease.
It requires the acquisition and application of scientific knowledge in multiple disciplines and uses technical skills towards disease prevention in both domestic and wild animals.
Human health is protected by veterinary science working closely with many medical professionals by the careful monitoring of livestock health as well as its unique training in epidemiology and emerging zoonotic diseases worldwide.
Veterinary medicine is informally as old as the human/animal bond but in recent years has expanded exponentially because of the availability of advanced diagnostic and therapeutic techniques for most species.
Animals nowadays often receive advanced medical, dental, and surgical care including insulin injections, root canals, hip replacements, cataract extractions, and pacemakers.
Veterinarians assist in ensuring the quality, quantity, and security of food supplies by working to maintain the health of livestock and inspecting the meat itself.
Veterinary scientists are very important in chemical, biological, and pharmacological research.
Why to choose Agriculture?
- Agriculture matters to the future of development.
Agriculture is up to four times more effective than other sectors in reducing poverty. Increasingly, the world is counting on agriculture to produce more nutritious food for — and improve the livelihoods of — a booming population, especially the poor.
- Sustainability is key
Agriculture has been a major key to this world for centuries, from teaching the basics of planting crops to upcoming technology. Throughout the evolution of agriculture, sustainability has been a huge part of it and that is why to be a part of it is pleasure. To help continue this industry down the right path for years to come.
- Be the change
When many hear the words "agriculture," farming comes to mind. Even though farming is vital to the agriculture industry, there is much more than farming in the agriculture industry. Over 1 in 10 jobs are agriculturally related, and they are not just trade-jobs. If you can think of it, there is most likely a career in agriculture.
Whether it is animal nutrition, engineering, or working in public relations, agriculture has a job for that.
