So I am not a Vet, I do have a degree in Equine Science and have spent most my adult life training horses and raising horses. I have treated many different animals with many different illnesses and done a lot of self diagnosing. You have to be very observant. You may notice a symptom that the previous person or even vet missed that may be the answer you need. Some of the main characteristics that have helped me along the way are Respect, Self awareness, and most of all Patience. You have to respect the animal you are treating. You have to be self aware to be able to improve areas of weakness, and ultimately master your craft. Patience is the ultimate one for me. You cant be quick to judge or conclude. You have to be able to reason and be able to use critical thinking in order to use deductions to properly diagnose. Drs. are just vets that didn't make it. An animal cannot tell you what they are feeling. That would be my advice. You should also have Integrity and be reliable.
