What is a Veterinary Specialist? How are they different from my family veterinarian?
In addition to completing undergraduate training and four years of veterinary school, Board-certified Veterinary Specialists are similar to their human medical counterparts in that they have completed an internship and residency in their specialized field (an additional 3-5 years training). In addition to this extensive training, a Board-certified Veterinary Specialist must pass rigorous examinations to achieve Board-certification from the ACVIM.

In addition, a Specialist may have diagnostic equipment not generally used by your family veterinarian.
