For the child who says, "I want to be a veterinarian when I grow up!" And for any child who wants a gentle behind-the-scenes look at being a veterinarian.
Veterinarians help sick and hurt animals feel better. Did you know that there are many different ways to be a veterinarian? When a father and child bring Gus the dog to his check-up, they learn that there are vets who work with very large animals, vets who work with wild animals—and more.
