Working as a vet is a very reasonable childhood dream. It tends to become less appealing, though, when one realizes that it's not just about petting cute animals. Still, the perks are there! We collected the evidence in pics that are beyond "Awww" to look at.

Pocket kittens. Tiny pups standing brave. It says it all. Do you work at a vet clinic? Share your pics with us. With a lot of cuteness comes a lot of responsibility!
