Veterinarian Jobs in Smithfield, VA

Diagnose, treat, and prevent health problems in animals. Veterinarians administer diagnostic tests, prescribe medications, and perform surgeries for pets, livestock, and wildlife. They operate medical equipment such as X-ray and ultrasound machines precisely to produce clear and accurate results. They also interact regularly with owners and educate them on treatment plans as well as how to promote their animals’ day-to-day wellness.

Veterinarians may specialize depending on the type of animal they see. Possible areas of focus include equine care (horses), companion animals (domestic pets), and food animals (farm livestock). Alternatively, they might address health compliance (food safety and inspection veterinarians) or work in laboratories to examine human and animal health issues (research veterinarians).
