Small-Animal Vets Are From Venus, Equine Vets From Mars

  I entertain myself while driving by comparing the three great races of veterinarians.

To entertain myself driving down the road, I think of the three great races of veterinarians; how they differ and how they are similar.

I think of this comparison in reference to a recent book of some fame: Small animal vets are from Venus. Equine vets are from Mars. Mixed animal vets are from Pluto.

Small animal vets dress from Land's End. Equine vets prefer L.L. Bean. Mixed Animal guys are into Tractor Supply.

Small animal vets tend to be vegetarians. Equine vets try to have balanced healthy diets. Mixed animal vets think the word vegetarian is a Native American word meaning "one who hunts poorly."

Small animal vets know things about wine. Equine vets prefer scotch. Mixed animal vets know wine gives the worst hangovers.
