Veterinary Science is probably not going to make you rich

Veterinary Science can be a very rewarding and enjoyable career but even though is can provide a reasonable income it is most likely not going to make you rich. The earning potential of veterinarians is limited by the hours in the day, their level of expertise and the amount of money the public is willing to spend on their pets.

Veterinary fees are often seen as being expensive but it should be pointed out that providing veterinary services is also expensive and profit margins are often not as high as in other professions or industries.

The number of veterinary schools has dramatically increased in recent years and so has the number of graduates, this has possibly occurred without a corresponding increase in the requirement for veterinary services. For more reading on this topic please go to

You are strongly encouraged to do your own research on this subject. As stated above veterinary science can be a very rewarding and enjoyable career but do not enter it as a sure way of becoming wealthy.
