I don't use VMD, but this is because I didn't graduate from The University of Pennsylvania's School of Veterinary Medicine. U-Penn, for some reason, is special in the United States in that it is the only vet school to grant the degree Veterinary Medical Doctor (VMD). Every other vet school grants Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM). The two degrees are functionally identical, however - VMDs and DVMs have the same knowledge base and technical skill.
