|The reference text, Veterinary Medicine, defines Veterinary medicine as the care of all types of animals, including both domestic and wild species. Many veterinarians specialize in the care of special categories of animals, such as small animals (primarily domestic pets, such as dogs, cats, and birds), large animals, farm animals, or wild animals. Specializations are becoming more common also, with many veterinarians choosing to focus on areas such as dentistry, anesthesiology, cardiology, neurology, nutrition, and animal behavior. Some veterinarians have also decided to focus on the use of complementary and alternative treatment of animals, such as the use of acupuncture for the treatment of some animal diseases and injuries. The vast majority of veterinary workers are employed in neighborhood clinics, where they treat their animal clients directly. Some veterinary assistants are also employed in specialized assignments, at race tracks, in large dairy facilities, or at zoos.|
