Unlike medical writing, ‘veterinary writing’ does not exist as a defined career path. However, writers are inevitably also required in this field and play important roles in different areas of the veterinary profession for creation of scientific and non-scientific documents. Scientific writing may involve production of regulatory and research-related documents, disease- or drug-related educational and promotional literature, and materials such as abstracts, journal articles, and posters for publication. Non-scientific writing may involve production of print-based and online materials for consumers about medicines and pet health. Numerous opportunities therefore exist for medical writers and veterinarians to embed themselves in various areas where writers are essential to the veterinary profession.
