How Can I Find Out If My Vet Works With Samoyeds?

3 mins |

When choosing a veterinary clinic, there are a few factors that are good to take into account. Price, location, services provided, and relationship with pet parents are all important in making your choice. But should we also be looking for veterinarians who are specialized in relation to a specific breed? For example, how could you find out if your vet works with Samoyeds?

Usually, most veterinarians do not have a preference for specific breeds of dogs. So, it’s usually safe to presume your vet will work with Samoyeds. If you want to find out whether a vet has previous experience with Samoyeds, you can always contact them prior to your visit.

Do All Vets Work With All Species?

The training veterinarians receive at university gives them the theoretical knowledge and basis to be able to treat all species. Depending on their experience and personal preference, most vets then choose the type of work they want to perform.

Below we’ve listed some examples of jobs performed by veterinarians:

  • Small animal clinician (dogs, cats, exotics)
  • Large animal clinician (farm animals and or horses)
  • Zoo veterinarian
  • Rescue center veterinarian
  • Public health veterinarian 
  • Food safety veterinarian (for example, in an abattoir or food production facility)
  • Wildlife veterinarian

After finishing veterinary school, there is a range of career opportunities for veterinarians. Vets play an important role not only in animal health but in human health and the health of the environment as well.
