That’s a substantial extra chunk of training at substantial cost They’re not remotely part of the answer to the UK vet shortage that Farthing is implying.

I get they're unemployable.
A year to skill up to be a vet sounds trivial to me. 5 year course, they're 80% there already it sounds like. Perhaps it's the hamsters and guinea pigs bit they are missing.
