Inside Veterinary Infectious Diseases

While all veterinarians are trained to recognize infectious diseases, specialized training in veterinary infectious diseases can lead to opportunities studying animal diseases and zoonotic diseases. Zoonosis is the formal term for an animal disease that can spread to humans, such as rabies. Deciding on pursuing a future as a veterinarian specializing in infectious diseases can be a life-altering decision. It is best to explore and research this field as much as possible before embarking on this career path. Study.com provides relevant information that can help you with your decision-making process.
