How many sick days does a veterinarian get?
This varies depending upon the country's laws and the contract negotiated by the veterinarian with the employer. In countries with mandatory minimum paid sick days, veterinarians get at least the minimum. However, it is possible for veterinarians to negotiate for more paid sick days per year in their employment contracts. In the United States, which has no minimum mandatory paid sick days, the average is about 3, although this ranges from 0 to 10 days per year. In many cases when veterinarians don't have paid sick days they have a set number of paid leave days that can be used as both sick leave and vacation leave.
