What is a Veterinarian for TN visa purposes?
In general, a Veterinarian, simply known as Vet, examines, conducts diagnostic tests such as CT scans, x-rays, urinalysis and blood tests, administers medication and performs surgery to treat diseases, injuries or disorders of animals. Since animals are not capable of vocalizing symptoms, a Veterinarian relies on the clinical signs exhibited by animals for administering treatment which is similar to pediatric medicine. Some other potential job titles of Veterinarian are Small Animal Veterinarian, Veterinary Medicine Doctor (DVM), Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM), Emergency Veterinarian, Staff Veterinarian, Veterinary Surgeon, Large Animal Veterinarian, Medical Director and Companion Animal Practitioner. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) provides a detailed breakdown of the Veterinarian profession through O*NET Online.
