People of Action 10:07 08 Aug 2021

Lizard has pneumonia, hamster has surgery. A day in the life of a veterinarian

We explain how Ukrainian animal doctors work, what owners should pay attention to in the first place to maintain the health of pets, and what to do if they find an animal on the street.

Fluffy, bald, feathered, or scaly, weighing several hundred kilograms or the size of a little finger: animals who can't explain what hurts them and how to help. Animals owe their health and sometimes their lives to doctors who've chosen veterinary medicine as a career path.

On the second Sunday of August, these specialists celebrate their professional holiday. We've prepared an article for the "People of Action" series. We'll tell you how often you should do medical checks, what to do with an animal that was picked up on the street, and what people have enough kindness for. And, of course, about the peculiarities of the profession.
