Extension veterinary medicine is every veterinarian's job. It is part of the task of practitioners, of veterinary sales representatives for veterinary biological commercial companies, of teachers and research workers in veterinary medicine, of regulatory veterinarians attached to the office of the state veterinary and bureau of animal industry offices. In other words, the improvement of public relations and veterinary education between our profession and other groups falls on the shoulders of the entire profession. However, the extension veterinarian does educational and public relations work on a full time basis, filling in the gap that neither the practitioner nor researcher has time to fill.
