A Veterinarian, and Now a Veteran

When talking about veterinarians, we try to avoid the term “vets” to avoid any confusion with the term “veterans.” Dr. Lisa Walker is a vet in both senses of the word. Dr. Walker is an emergency room veterinarian at Ann Arbor Animal Hospital in Ann Arbor, Mich., and she recently returned from a tour in Afghanistan, where she served as a veterinarian through the U.S. Army Reserves. In this podcast, Dr. Walker discusses her role overseas, and the larger role veterinarians play in the U.S. military.
