    Not the best indicator: a vet's job involves working with humans just as much as animals, if not more so!

    OP the only way you'll be able to make a definitive choice is to get varied work experience in both and see which environment you're most comfortable in

    I have been volunteering at a local vet clinic to gain insight in to the job. Obviously there are pro's and con's of being a vet as well as being a physician. Being a vet not only do you deal with animals but with the owners which (trust me) can be a little overwhelming. At the end of the day if you really want to become a vet you will do it regardless of how difficult the people or the job might be.
    Here's a link that might give you a different perspective (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC556144/) because vets and physicians are not all that different, they even collaborate together, so sometimes you can have the best of both worlds.

    I hope this helps you, good luck on making a decison!
