There are several different types of veterinarians, including:
- Small animal veterinarians: These veterinarians work with small animals such as cats, dogs, and birds.
- Large animal veterinarians: These veterinarians work with large animals such as horses, cows, and sheep.
- Exotic animal veterinarians: These veterinarians work with exotic animals such as reptiles, birds of prey, and small mammals.
- Equine veterinarians: These veterinarians specialize in the care of horses.
- Zoo veterinarians: These veterinarians work with animals in zoos and wildlife parks.
- Research veterinarians: These veterinarians work in research settings, studying animal health and diseases.

In college, veterinary students typically study a broad range of subjects related to animal health, including anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and disease prevention and treatment. Many programs also offer elective courses or clinical rotations that allow students to focus on a specific area of interest, such as small animal care or exotic animal medicine. After completing their education, veterinarians may choose to specialize in a particular area of practice by completing additional training through internships or residencies.
