Good Dog
Army

The Army needs animals to help accomplish important missions and relies on the Veterinary Corps to keep them healthy. Those with doctorates from veterinary school and a license to practice in the United States may be eligible to join the Army as an officer.

Army veterinarians are provided the same benefits as their fellow health care professionals. For example, they can take advantage of free training programs and tuition assistance to help repay their student loans.
