dog-with-vetIf you’re searching for a new veterinarian, you may have noticed that some veterinarians are certified as VMD’s while others have a DVM after their name. What’s the difference? In terms of expertise, a VMD and DVM are exactly the same. The only difference between the two is the veterinary school that granted the degree. Graduates of the University of Pennsylvania receive a VMD the letters stand for the latan words for Veterinary Medical Doctor. DVM is an abbreviation for Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. This is the degree granted by every other vets school. Aside from the name and the school, the degrees are absolutely equivalent. It’s up to you to choose a vet that you are comfortable with. Remember, they do not just administer pet medication but are really an important part of your pets overall health.
