How Much Does a Large Animal Vet Make Per Year? Average Large Animal Vet Salary

They also conduct surgeries when necessary and prescribe medications to these animals. Large animal vets are often employed by circuses, zoos, and other businesses that make use of numerous large animals. The average large animal vet salary is $90,000. The income varies due to factors such as location and experience.
