Veterinary medicine is a Medical specialty concerned with the prevention, control, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases affecting the health of domestic and wild animals and with the prevention of transmission of animal diseases between animals and to people.

They diagnose and control animal diseases and treat sick and injured animals. They also advise owners on proper care of their pets and livestock.

       In many countries, the local nomenclature for a veterinarian is a regulated and protected term, meaning that members of the public without the prerequisite qualifications and/or licensure are not able to use the title. In many cases, the activities that may be undertaken by a veterinarian (such as treatment of illness or surgery in animals) are restricted only to those professionals who are registered as a veterinarian. For instance, in Nigeria as in other jurisdictions, animal treatment may only be performed by registered veterinary physicians (with a few designated exceptions, such as Para veterinary workers), this does not include a person who is not registered to call themselves a veterinarian, prescribe any drugs, or perform treatment.

          The Nigerian Veterinary Medical Association is the umbrella of all Veterinary Surgeons who are registered with the Veterinary Council of Nigeria. Individuals interested in pursuing a career in veterinary medicine must train at a university for at least six years to obtain a doctoral degree – the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree. Veterinarians are educated to protect the health of both animals and humans.  Not only do they address the health needs of a wide variety of animal species, they also play a critical role in environmental protection, food safety, animal welfare and public health.  A licensed veterinarian can work in several different areas including private practice, government, teaching, research or industry.

This includes small, large and mixed animal practices, as well as specialization in one type of species or discipline such as equine practice or surgery. The case is the same Utako, Abuja.
