I can attest to vets having serious medical chops. As I live in near abject poverty with no health insurance I generally get non-emergency medical care from a veternerian, and buy my meds from an online pet med store as it’s usually cheaper for everything but generic antibiotics (which the vet can prescribe to be picked up at a regular pharmacy)
