People have pets and people have cattle and unlike humans who can go to or summon a doctor when illnesses strike, animals can’t do that, and that’s why we have veterinarians.
It’s a high paying job both at the government and private level. As a private veterinarian, you can earn lakhs tending to people’s pets and as a government veterinarian, you will be dealing with pets and cattle day in and day out. You can also move abroad to practice.
There are too few veterinarians looking after too many animals in rural and urban India. The job market is always ripe for veterinarians across the board.
Most courses are in English. They also have some courses in Kannada.
Yes. It’s the only college that offers a course in veterinary science.
It’s affordable and because it’s being offered in a government facility, you can expect some really good infrastructure and faculty.
