An M.D., or Doctor of Medicine, is an academic achievement that can take years of schooling to obtain. It is only awarded once students have shown they have the knowledge and experience required to practice medicine competently.
A student of veterinary medicine can learn how to treat and care for sick and injured animals. They may focus on a specific group of animals (equine, small animal, etc.) or deal with wildlife instead of domestic animals.
