Veterinary Abbreviations

Veterinary medicine is the science of the origin, development, treatment and prevention of animal diseases . In ancient Rome, the term “veterinus” meant “cattle” and there for the first time animal healers were called “medicus veterinarius” – veterinarians.


In order to be able to effectively control the life processes in sick animals, the veterinarian must know very thoroughly and comprehensively the natural course of biological processes in a healthy organism. The basic veterinary sciences are general biological sciences . They describe the normal course of life processes in healthy animals, as well as their requirements for the conditions of the surrounding living and non-living nature. The basic veterinary sciences include:


Animal anatomy, cytology, histology and embryology
Physiology, biochemistry and biophysics of animals
Genetics and animal breeding
Animal hygiene
Feeding the animals


They study the causes and conditions for the occurrence of diseases in animals, the ways of development of the disease process and the ways of its treatment and prevention. The special veterinary sciences include:

Pathological anatomy, cytology and histology;
Pathological physiology;
Internal diseases;
Obstetrics and gynecology – the science of proper care in the birth of animals and their treatment in the postpartum period;
Veterinary and sanitary examination of food and products of animal origin;
Forensic veterinary expertise, veterinary management and veterinary deontology.
