Veterinary epidemiology is principally concerned with the study of diseases or conditions in animals that affect certain population or patterns of disease conditions within a population of animals, by which they are affected, the location of affected animals, and the patterns of disease through time can be studied by veterinary epidemiology.
Veterinary science helps human health through the monitoring and control of zoonotic infectious disease transmitted from non-human animals to humans, food safety, and indirectly through human applications from basic medical research.
They also help to maintain food supply through livestock health monitoring and treatment, and mental health by keeping pets healthy and long living. Veterinary scientists often collaborate with epidemiologists, and other health or natural scientists depending on type of work. Ethically, veterinarians are usually obliged to look after animal welfare.
