Well, just like doctors, vets can have their own practice or work in a group with other vets out of the same office. The vet typically is their own boss, but is supervised by local and state agencies. For more information, it might be a great idea to schedule an appointment with a vet in your area for an interview at the end of their business day. Good Luck
