Can you be a veterinarian for horses only or do you have to be a general large animal veterinarian?

Yes, you can choose to limit your practice to only horses and particularly among competition and breeding horse owners, the preference is to use an equine exclusive veterinarian. However, regardless of your preferred species, you will have to learn about all the major domestic animals in vet school and will be tested on this information before you can practice veterinary medicine.
