Scope and Career Prospects
The BVSc & A.H offers wide range of job avenues for the graduates. The demand of veterinary graduates is increasing promisingly. The job profile of a veterinary doctor and animal husbandry specialist is not less than that of physician and surgeon. People have become very cautious of animal health and danger posed by the sick animals. Moreover, animal right issues and rise in people’s interest in taming animals have increased the demand of the vet doctors. The graduates can work in government departments related to animal husbandry, poultry and dairy farms, animal rearing and breeding farm, goat and sheep farms, pig and buffalo farms, cow and horse farms, private and government veterinary hospitals and clinics. They can also work in wildlife reserves and conservation area, zoological park and aviaries, pharmaceuticals companies working in the field of animal, animal food manufacturing industries, research institutes, army and security forces, etc. Not only in their own country, graduates have good career prospects internationally.
