Veterinary Drug Handbook (VDH) is the reference veterinarians turn to when they want an independent source of information on the drugs that are used in veterinary medicine today.


APPRENTICE

[from Latin apprendo, to seize or apprehend]: Traditionally, an individual whose primary reward for labor is the opportunity to learn a trade. The apprentice is usually bound to an established craftsman for a specified period of time and paid a modest salary. An apprentice cannot accept payment for his work directly from customers. Farrier apprenticeships traditionally run from 3 to 5 years in length.
