Iowa State University Veterinarian

Veterinary medicine stands opposed to the concept of animal rights, although a number will readily contest this statement. Opposition comes from a misunderstanding of the veterinarian's role in society and a lack of knowledge of what the animal rights philosophy demands. Properly understood, it is diametrically opposed to the Veterinarian's Oath, which enjoins us to "participate in the advancement of medical knowledge." We cannot do this and meet the demands of the animal rights movement.

History Of Veterinary Medicine Jan 1939

History Of Veterinary Medicine

Iowa State University Veterinarian

The birth of veterinary art probably preceded that of human medicine. In biological existence, food is the primitive requirement. Veterinary medicine sustains life; human medicine preserves it.

Upon domestication of animal life, diseases which were not before apparent became rampant and it logically fell to the shepherds and herdsmen to care for the sick animals.
