When people think of veterinarians, they think "dog-and-cat-doctors." And with good reason. Dogs and cats are the most common American pets by far. According to the 2007 U.S. Pet Ownership and Demographics Sourcebook , published by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), Americans own 81.7 million cats and 72 million dogs. But cats and dogs - and birds and reptiles, for that matter - are not the only pets Americans own.
