Veterinary medicine addresses animal health and well-being. Key areas include knowledge about diseases, diagnostics, and treatment. The field includes both production animals, including farmed fish, and companion animals.
Veterinary public health pertains to all aspects of preventing the spread of disease from animals to humans, and is a field that is in increasing demand.
Understanding associations between human and animal health is crucial in order to face some of today’s most pressing health challenge as almost 80 % of known infection diseases that affect humans originate in animals.
