The veterinary symbol is often incorrectly referred to as the caduceus. The true recognized veterinary symbol is the staff of Greek god Aesculapius encircled by a sacred serpent, then overlaid by the letter “V”. It is held as a symbol of hope and triumph over illness by the veterinary profession.
The true caduceus is generally a staff with 2 snakes and wings. This arose from the Greek god Hermes and is considered a symbol of human medicine.
This veterinary symbol is an attractive addition to any clinic as an important symbol of the veterinary profession.
