In this article the authors discuss the profession in veterinary medicine in Great Britain. The authors mention that as a profession, veterinarians are united in terms of commitment, vision, and the desire to improve and advance. However, they state that various correspondence in the veterinary literature imply that the profession is divided and in decline. They emphasize that the debate on the issue was fueled by the inquiry for the need to replace the Veterinary Surgeons Act.
