Veterinarians often work long and erratic hours. Some work nights or weekends, and they may have to respond to emergencies at any time. About 1 in 3 veterinarians worked more than 50 hours per week in 2012.
Veterinarians held about 70,300 jobs in 2012, of which 74 percent were in the veterinary services industry (direct animal care). The remaining 26 percent held positions at colleges or universities, in research laboratories, or in the government. About 18 percent were self-employed, double the percentage of self-employed veterinarians in 2010.

Self-Assessment Format and Cost
Each NAVLE self-assessment form consists of 200 multiple-choice items, which are presented in four sections of 50 items each. The cost of each self-assessment is $50, which can be paid by Visa or MasterCard when purchasing an assessment on-line. Self-assessment fees are non-refundable. The self-assessments do not include the on-screen calculator function available on the NAVLE.
Assessments are offered under two timing modes, standard-paced and self-paced. Participants who choose the standard-paced mode will be allowed up to 55 minutes to complete each section, for a total test time of 220 minutes. This is the same timing used on the NAVLE. Participants who choose the self-paced timing mode will be allowed up to 110 minutes to complete each section, for a total test time of 440 minutes. The timing mode cannot be changed once the self-assessment has been accessed by the participant.
The bad thing of being a veterinarian is that you working long hours and it might be stressful from time to time. You might get battle scars while at work you can get kicked and bit.
