About this Subject Area
VETERINARY SCIENCE is the branch of science that deals with the application of medical, surgical, public health, dental, diagnostic and therapeutic principles to non-human animals, including wildlife and domesticated animals such as livestock, working animals and companion animals. Practitioners of veterinary medicine are known as veterinarians. Veterinary science helps human health through the monitoring and control of zoonotic disease (infectious disease transmitted from non-human animals to humans). Veterinary scientists often collaborate with epiemiologists.
