The relationship between veterinarians and breeders is complicated. A competent veterinarian and a reputable breeder are likely to get along just fine. However, there are some breeders who are more concerned with producing as many offspring as possible rather than focusing on the health of the babies, and many veterinarians have a moral and ethical problem with this. A fairer estimation would be that some veterinarians have specific disreputable breeders that they will not provide veterinary services for.

Are there any other places veterinarians work?

Most veterinarians work in private practice clinics around the world, treating privately owned animals.
