In ancient times, medicine was considered an art and equated with magical rituals.

"Medicine is not merely a science but an art. - claimed Paracelsus, a Swiss alchemist and philosopher of the first half of the XVI century. -The character of the physician may act more powerfully upon the patient than the drugs employed".

The origins of veterinary medicine also date back to the distant past. Even in the third millennium BC, during the Sumerian civilization, there are references to "doctors of donkeys and bulls." Healing animals is a special art, animals can not tell what hurts them, they are not always ready to make contact and need a great love and sensitivity of a person who can help them. Therefore, veterinary medicine is a special art that requires not only virtuosic skills and professionalism, but also doctors' bleeding hearts.
