The local demand for Veterinarians is expected to increase as more people take their pets to private practices for care. Veterinarians also fill roles related to animal safety, disease control and public health.

Love for animals
Do you hate seeing animals in pain and get absolutely livid when you see or hear stories about animal abuse? Do you want to cuddle and pet almost every single cute animal that you come across of? Then this is the right job for you! Your love towards the animals will help them as you diagnose and treat their illness.
Flexible in your working hours
Emergencies happen at unpredictable times. It won’t be surprising that your phone is ringing in the middle of the night with a patient crying for your help because something is wrong with their furry companions. In these cases, usually you will be rushing to the location to treat the animals even if you are still in your pajamas.
Communicate with clients, especially when the clients are emotional
It is hard to break the bad news of their beloved pet to the clients. However, it is something that needs to be done regardless of the consequences. You should be conveying the message in the best way you can to minimise the hurt and heartbreak of the clients.
You will need to possess at least a degree in Animal Science, Marine Biology or degrees of similar field in order to be a Veterinarian. You can further your studies if you wish to be a specialist in a particular field. Admission to Veterinary school is competitive. The number of accredited Veterinary universities has remained the same in Malaysia, but the number of applicants has risen significantly.
Veterinarians work longer than the typical 9 to 5 office hours. Most of them work at least 50 hours a week, may work nights, shifts or weekends depending on the opening hours of the animal clinic.
“Personally, I have always felt that the best doctor in the world is the Veterinarian. He can't ask his patients what is the matter...he's just got to know.”
- Will Rogers
