Veterinary doctors are required for extension programs i.e. they educate and encourage livestock farmers to build up the quality of their animal stock . They also advise on animal farm management and animal health problems.

Vets play an important role in captive breeding of wild animals, particularly those feared to be getting extinct.

Veterinarian surgeons attached to veterinary hospitals in cities may find themselves handling mainly domestic pets. But the government postings could also be in rural areas where responsibilities extend to cattle, sheep, goats, poultry, horses etc.

Veterinarians are employed in the pharmaceutical companies where they handle the production of vaccines or the development of animal feeds and fertilizers.
