eciding on a career path in
veterinary medicine is very
demanding. Deciding to be a
specialist in veterinary medicine is an
even larger commitment.
The American Board of Veterinary
Specialties (ABVS) is the umbrella
organization for veterinary specialties.
Currently, there are about 40 approved
specialties that require a rigorous quali-
fication process following veterinary
school graduation. Most require a one-
year internship or two years of clinical
practice before beginning a two- to
three-year residency. Once the program
is completed, the resident must pass
an exam before earning the title of
Diplomate to be considered a specialist
in that particular veterinary area.
Many veterinary specialists require
a referral for new patients. Following
treatment, the specialist may stay in
close contact with the referring veteri-
narian to provide ongoing treatment.

The growth of the numbers of vet-
erinarian specialists is determined by
animal owners demanding the best of
diagnostic and therapeutic expertise for
their pets and the willingness to pay for
those treatments.
The JN talked with three Jewish
veterinary specialists to find out what
motivates them and about their prac-
tices.
