The Veterinary Services industry is labor intensive. In 2015, wage costs are comprised of 36.6% of industry revenue, compared with depreciation costs accounting for 2.3%. For every dollar spent on wages, the industry incurs an estimated $0.06 in capital costs. All areas of operation of an animal hospital require a significant input of knowledge and skill. There is a high level of hands-on care required in diagnosing and treating animals. Veterinarians are well educated and possess a high level of skill, which results in elevated wage costs. Support is required in the areas of registering the animal on arrival at the hospital and receiving payments as well as taking samples, exercising, feeding, grooming and cleaning animals.

The veterinary profession is, at its core, a science-based profession. Veterinary research has been responsible for remarkable scientific achievements, of which the global eradication of rinderpest and the production of the first vaccine for a retrovirus (Feline Leukaemia Virus) are but two examples. The UK has a highly efficient research base in the veterinary sciences, which is competitive nationally with other research areas of similar size (dentistry) and internationally with both established scientific powers (USA) and emerging competitors (China, Brazil).The health and welfare of the 20 million companion animals in the UK is dependent on solid research, as is the health and productivity of the more than 36 million of its food animals. Our increasing interdependence with animals and their products may well be the single most critical risk factor to our health and well-being with regard to infectious diseases. Acknowledging that profound and complex interdependence needs to be translated in visible support for the veterinary profession and veterinary research.

The role of reproduction is to provide for the continued existence of a species; it is the process by which living organisms duplicate themselves. Animals compete with other individuals in the environment to maintain themselves for a period of time sufficient to enable them to produce tissue nonessential to their own survival, but indispensable to the maintenance of the species. The additional tissue, reproductive tissue, usually becomes separated from the individual to form a new, independent organism.
Animal genetics provide advance breeding technology and testing services such as DNA typing, genetic trait tests, and genetic disease tests. In recent years, animal genetics market witnessed tremendous growth which is mainly attributed to rising demand of animal products due to increasing global population and rapid urbanization, adoption of advanced genetic technologies for larger-scale production and quality breeds, development of cutting-edge technologies in animal genetic testing, and growing awareness about veterinary genetic diseases and disorders. The animal genetics market is segmented by products, testing services, and by geography. Developed geographies like North America and Europe are likely to grow at a lower CAGRs as compared to the Asia-Pacific market, which is expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period, largely driven by the rising demand of animal derived products, increase in the population of livestock animals, and implementation of animal welfare acts.

Animal welfare denotes the desire to prevent unnecessary animal suffering. It means how an animal is coping with the conditions in which it lives. An animal is in a good state of welfare if it is healthy, comfortable and well nourished, safe, able to express innate behaviour, and if it is not suffering from unpleasant states such as pain, fear, and distress. Good animal welfare requires disease prevention and veterinary treatment, appropriate shelter, management, nutrition, humane handling and humane slaughter/killing. Animal welfare refers to the state of the animal; the treatment that an animal receives is covered by other terms such as animal care, animal husbandry, and humane treatment.

Veterinary Forensic Sciences is the application of a broad spectrum of sciences, including veterinary medicine, to answer questions of interest to a court of law related to animal abuse. It can be used to solve the animal related crime. Veterinary forensics is a growing field that holds many opportunities for research. As the field becomes more prominent, new fields of specialization will open up, giving investigators the chance to become experts in one specific aspect of veterinary forensics and each of these new areas of expertise will provide research opportunities. The melding of human and veterinary forensic science will ultimately benefit society, protecting people and animals alike.

The term "exotic pet" is loosely defined as anything but cats, dogs, fish or horses. For veterinarians, the category generally consists of reptiles and amphibians, birds and small mammals. Exotic pets have become increasingly prevalent in last few years. Some of the most popular are those on the tame end of the spectrum—rabbits, turtles, hamsters, guinea pigs and even poultry. Exotics often offer advantages as alternative pets. They can be suitable for people with allergies to furry things, and many require less space than cats or dogs.
The avian sector has undergone major structural changes during the past two decades due to the introduction of modern intensive production methods, genetic improvements, improved preventive disease control and biosecurity measures, increasing income and human population, and urbanization. These changes offer tremendous opportunities for poultry producers, particularly smallholders, to improve their farm income.

The world of animal medicine has seen drastic technological advances in the last 20 years. Many of the new tools and procedures have been adopted from human medical practice. The advances have not only led to better treatments, but also faster and more accurate diagnosis. From MRIs and Ultrasounds to the Amplatz Canine Ductal Occluder, there are many new technologies that are giving veterinarians greater ability to diagnose and ultimately save sick animals. MRI technology has been extremely influential in the progression of human neuroscience. Vets are now using the imaging technology to look into the brains of pets and other animals. On the other hand, ultrasounds have the advantage of not requiring anesthesia and being relatively cheap to perform. Laparoscopic procedures use a small camera and light source that can be inserted into the abdominal or thoracic cavity to see inside the body. This is yet another example of a human medicine technology being adapted to the animal kingdom. With the development of new veterinary technology comes the greater need for those with specialized training. Being a veterinary technician is a rewarding career for anyone who has a passion for animals.

Animal testing, also known as animal experimentation, animal research, and in vivo testing, is the use of non-human animals in experiments. The research is conducted inside universities, medical schools, pharmaceutical companies, farms, defense establishments, and commercial facilities that provide animal-testing services to industry. It includes pure research as well as applied research. Animals are also used for education, breeding, and defense research. The practice is regulated to various degrees in different countries. Worldwide it is estimated that the number of vertebrate animals from zebrafish to non-human primates ranges from the tens of millions to more than 100 million used annually. Invertebrates, mice, rats, birds, fish, frogs, and animals not yet weaned are not included in the figures in the United States, one estimate of mice and rats used in the US alone in 2001 was 80 million. Most animals are euthanized after being used in an experiment. Sources of laboratory animals vary between countries and species, most animals are purpose-bred, while a minority are caught in the wild or supplied by dealers who obtain them from auctions and pounds. According to the Humane Society, registration of a single pesticide requires more than 50 experiments and the use of as many as 12,000 animals. When used in cosmetic tests, mice, rats, rabbits, and guinea pigs are often subjected to skin and eye irritation tests where chemicals are rubbed on shaved skin or dripped into the eyes without any pain relief. In tests of potential carcinogens, subjects are given a substance every day for 2 years. Others tests involve killing pregnant animals and testing their fetuses. The real-life applications for some of the tested substances are as trivial as an “improved” laundry detergent, new eye shadow, or copycat drugs to replace a profitable pharmaceutical whose patent expired. Alternative tests achieve one or more of the “3 R’s:” replaces a procedure that uses animals with a procedure that doesn’t, reduces the number of animals used in a procedure, refines a procedure to alleviate or minimize potential animal pain.

Veterinary care is an essential part of an animal care and use Program. The primary focus of the veterinarian is to oversee the well-being and clinical care of animals used in research, testing, teaching, and production. This responsibility extends to monitoring and promoting animal well-being at all times during animal use and during all phases of the animal’s life. Well-being is determined by considering physical, physiologic, and behavioural indicators, which vary by species. The number, species, and use of animals housed in an institution may influence the complexity of the veterinary care program, but a veterinary program that offers a high quality of care and ethical standards must be provided, regardless of the number of animals or species maintained.
