Veterinary research includes studies on prevention, control, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases and on the basic biology and welfare of animals. It transcends species boundaries to include the study of spontaneous and experimental models of both human and animal disease and research at important human-animal interfaces, such as food safety, wildlife and ecosystem health, zoonotic diseases, and public policy. Veterinary research serves as the interface of basic science and animal and human health that is critical to the advancement of our understanding of and response to impending risks and to the exploitation of disciplinary advances in the pursuit of One Medicine. The urgent need to provide adequate resources for investigators, training programs, and facilities involved in veterinary research must be met to seize the opportunities to improve the well-being of humans and animals and to minimize risks to their health.

Poultry refers to any kind of domesticated bird, captive-raised for its utility, and traditionally the word is used to refer to wildfowl and waterfowl. Poultry can be defined as domestic fowls, including chickens, turkeys, geese and ducks, preserved for the production of meat or eggs and the word is also used for the flesh of these birds used as food. Globally, mostly chickens are kept than any other type of poultry, with over 50 billion birds being raised as a source of meat and eggs. Profitability of production depends very much on the price of feed, which has been subsequently rising. High feed costs could limit any further progress of poultry production. Poultry is the second most widely eaten type of meat around the globe, accounting for approximately 30% of total meat production worldwide compared to pork at 38%. Sixteen billion birds are being raised every year for consumption, more than half of these in industrialized, factory-like production units. Worldwide broiler meat production elevated up to 84.6 million tons in 2013. The largest producers were US (20%), Brazil (15.1%), China (16.6%) and the European Union (11.3%).Poultry meat and eggs provide nutritionally beneficial food. A 2011 study by the Translational Genomics Research Institute showed that 47% of meat and poultry sold in US grocery stores was contaminated with Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella and Campylobacter. Poultry products are prone to contamination by these bacteria during handling, processing, marketing, or storage, resulting in fatal food-borne diseases if the product is improperly cooked or handled.

The Veterinary Services industry is labor intensive. In 2015, wage costs are comprised of 36.6% of industry revenue, compared with depreciation costs accounting for 2.3%. For every dollar spent on wages, the industry incurs an estimated $0.06 in capital costs. All areas of operation of an animal hospital require a significant input of knowledge and skill. There is a high level of hands-on care required in diagnosing and treating animals. Veterinarians are well educated and possess a high level of skill, which results in elevated wage costs. Support is required in the areas of registering the animal on arrival at the hospital and receiving payments as well as taking samples, exercising, feeding, grooming and cleaning animals.

The Global veterinary healthcare market, estimated at $24.8 Billion in 2014, is set to reach $34.39 Billion by 2019, with a CAGR of 7.86% over the forecast period. Veterinary healthcare market is gaining importance as a result of manufacturers focus on production of products with specialized formulations and specialized manufacturing processes. In United States alone, Americans spent more than $53 billion on food, pet supplies, over-the-counter and prescription medications, veterinary care, live animal purchases, dietary supplements and other pet-related services. Increased love for the pets leading to increased ownership, more people awareness for animal health, and far less requirements for animal health drugs approval are the major driving factors for the market. Another factor that drives the market is continuous innovations and technological advances in development of animal health drugs. However, increased competition for cultivated land and scarcity of arable land are the major restraints for the market growth. The new type of diseases in animals and their subsequent transfer to humans via animal feed quality consumption and companionship are escalating the veterinary healthcare industry globally. The strategic decisions in research and development of manufacturers are expected to positively impact global veterinary healthcare market.

Biochemistry is closely related to molecular biology, the study of the molecular mechanisms by which genetic information encoded in DNA is able to result in the processes of life. Depending on the exact definition of the terms used, molecular biology can be thought of as a branch of biochemistry, or biochemistry as a tool with which to investigate and study molecular biology. Biochemistry is one of the few basic sciences where animal and plant kingdoms meet. In veterinary education and research, biochemistry is highly relevant to the metabolism and functions of animals in health and disease, and forms the basis for an intelligent understanding of major aspects of veterinary science and animal husbandry. Hence the need for adequate recognition of the place of biochemistry in veterinary education cannot be over emphasized. It is only the possession of a fairly high level of knowledge of biochemistry that will enable one to study, or to pursue a line of research, intelligently in applied sciences such as animal nutrition, dairy science, pharmacology, animal physiology, animal genetics, clinical pathology, medicine and so on. In the absence of grounding in biochemistry, it is difficult to obtain an insight into these subject areas.

The global dairy herd management market was valued at $823.65 million in 2013 and is expected to reach $1,511.91 million by 2018, at a CAGR of 12.92% between 2013 and 2018. Dairy cattle management products are rapidly gaining widespread acceptance in the dairy industry primarily due to the increased demand for dairy products. Furthermore, use of these automated herd management techniques offers substantial cost advantages over traditional techniques. Dairy herd management products serve to improve production efficiency, lower labor costs, and help in planning and managing milking, feeding, vaccination, and insemination schedules for large herds.

Veterinary epidemiology deals with the investigation of diseases, productivity and animal welfare in populations. It is used to describe the frequency of disease occurrence and how disease, productivity and welfare are affected by the interaction of different factors or determinants. This information is then used to manipulate such determinants in order to reduce the frequency of disease occurrence. Veterinary epidemiology is a holistic approach aimed at coordinating the use of different scientific disciplines and techniques during an investigation of disease or impaired productivity or welfare. One of its essential foundations is the collection of data, which then has to be analyzed using qualitative or quantitative approaches in order to formulate causal hypotheses. As part of the quantitative approach to epidemiological analysis, epidemiological investigations involving field studies or surveys are being conducted and models of epidemiological problems can be developed. The ultimate goal is to control a disease problem, reduce productivity losses and improve animal welfare.

Animal breeding is a branch of animal science that addresses the evaluation of the genetic value of livestock. Selecting for breeding animals with superior EBV in growth rate, egg, meat, milk, or wool production, or with other desirable traits has revolutionized livestock production throughout the world. It is the management and care of farm animals by humans for profit, in which genetic qualities and behavior, considered to be advantageous to humans, are further developed. The term can refer to the practice of selectively breeding and raising livestock to promote desirable traits in animals for utility, sport, pleasure, or research. Breeding techniques such as artificial insemination and embryo transfer are frequently used today, not only as methods to guarantee that females breed regularly but also to help improve herd genetics. On the one hand, this improves the ability of the animals to convert feed to meat, milk, or fiber more efficiently, and improve the quality of the final product. On the other, it decreases genetic diversity, increasing the severity of certain disease outbreaks among other risks.

Ornithology is a branch of zoology that concerns the study of birds. Several aspects of ornithology differ from related disciplines, due partly to the high visibility and the aesthetic appeal of birds. Most marked among these is the extent of studies undertaken by amateurs working within the parameters of strict scientific methodology. The science of ornithology has a long history and studies on birds have helped develop several key concepts in evolution, behavior and ecology such as the definition of species, the process of speciation, instinct, learning, ecological niches, guilds, island biogeography, phylogeography and conservation. While early ornithology was principally concerned with descriptions and distributions of species, ornithologists today seek answers to very specific questions, often using birds as models to test hypotheses or predictions based on theories.

Veterinary surgery is surgery performed on animals by veterinarians, which are categorized into three broad categories: orthopedics (bones, joints, muscles), soft tissue surgery (skin, body cavities, cardiovascular system, GI/urogenital/respiratory tracts), and neurosurgery. Advanced surgical procedures such as joint replacement (total hip, knee and elbow replacement), fracture repair, stabilization of cranial cruciate ligament deficiency, oncologic (cancer) surgery, herniated disc treatment, complicated gastrointestinal or urogenital procedures, kidney transplant, skin grafts, complicated wound management, minimally invasive procedures such as arthroscopy, laparoscopy, thoracoscopy, etc. The goal of veterinary surgery may be quite different in pets and in farm animals. In the former, situation is a bit like in human beings, and more and more complex operations are performed, with sophisticated anesthesia techniques. In the latter, the cost of the operation must not exceed the economic benefit in surgically treating the illness. Whereas Radiology is a medical specialty that uses imaging to diagnose and treat diseases seen within the body. Radiologists use a variety of imaging techniques such as X-ray radiography, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), nuclear medicine including positron emission tomography (PET), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to diagnose and/or treat diseases.
