Nothing can take his place - no layman or lawmaker - no clinic or council. For he who can with gentle hands and soothing words, calm the fears of stricken animals has a gift reserved for few. He who can diagnose the sickness of creature that cannot speak, one that can neither sign nor gesture give any indication of the seat of fatal illness is one endowed with knowledge, sympathy and understanding far beyond the reach of ordinary men. He who can, with aids of medical science, brighten the eyes, stay the fever, energize the pulse, build the resistance against disease in the animal, has reached the goal only a favored few attain.

And what are his rewards? The knowledge that he has lived, a life of true usefulness in helping creatures that cannot help themselves.

To the veterinarian, the animalitarian - the livestock industry is grateful.
