Can someone help me? WARNING:(Underground information)
Does anyone know if one can major in veterinary science and medicine (for human beings)?
A poster on the "Is veterinary science really harder than m.d. program" said that being doctor for animals makes more money than being a doctor for human beings, so I'd like to do both if possible.
I find this fact astounding. Can anyone provide more details.
This is from R2 from the other thread:
[quote]Yes, a well run practice for baby lions (aka kitties) and dogs and misc other critters is more profitable than being an MD. There is little in the way of insurance for pets, so it's a cash gold mine. It's a bit harder to establish a veterinary practice in the metro areas, but once you do, it become profitable much more quickly than a human practice. If you have a specialty for one or more of the four legged critters, you will think you've purchased a printing press for money.
All of this should be denied if asked in public, but here on DL, the truth is often OK since no matter what one prints, most of us will refuse to believe it.

Are you 10 years old? You can major in anything you want. You can go to college for the rest of your life. You obviously can't go to Veterinary School at the same time you are going to Medical School

That isn't true. Drs make more than vets. It is HARDER to get into Veterinary School because there aren't that many Veterinary Schools. There are only 28 Veterinary Schools as opposed to 141 Medical Schools and 29 Osteopathy Schools in the U.S
MDs make more than vets, generally. I suppose there are vets out there with hugely successful practices, but if you can turn a small business into a moneyspinner, you actually belong in business school. No, most vets make an average middle-class income, if that.
The advantage of vet practice over medical is that malpractice suits aren't common, and you don't have to deal with medical insurance companies controlling and cutting reimbursement. You bill the customers directly, and hope they pay.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
