"…but you are a Doctor? Right?"
"I'm a vet"
"A combat veteran?"
(Rick and Herschel The Walking Dead)
A Veterinary Physician, or Veterinarian, (often called a Vet for short) is a doctor who treats animals.

Game and Story Use
- If animals play a significant role in your campaign; if the PC's ride mounts, for example, or if one has a familiar; the health of those animals may become important in the game. Giving a character some veterinary knowledge may be useful.
- Or, if one of their animals falls ill, they may have to seek out a professional who knows how to treat it.
- Like Herschel, they may also be the nearest thing going to an actual doctor.
