What Exactly Is A Wildlife Veterinarian?
A wildlife veterinarian is a new type of doctor who cares for sick or injured non-domesticated animals. For instance, a wildlife veterinarian might help take care of sea life after an oil spill. Or you might help bring a forest back to life after a fire.
When you’re a wildlife veterinarian, you won’t be spending your time taking care of sick kittens or de-clawing puppies.
Don’t spend your time waiting for an old lady to bring in her poodle. As a wildlife veterinarian you’ll get out into nature.
