Default How do you address a vet?

So, let's say, hypothetically speaking of course, that I... have a friend who's going to be calling the veterinarian today to ask her something about his dog. Does he call her doctor?

What's the play here?

"I have a question for ___"
a) Doctor _____."
b) Ms. ____."
c) the Vet."

I don't think the question was whether or not they are technically they are referred to as Doctors.

My wife was a vet tech. It was funny because in the 10 years she had this occupation at like 4-5 different offices, she would call probably half of them Dr. Something and half by their first names. I don't know why this was the case, but there never seemed to be any rhyme or reason to it.

We all know you don't have friends. We also know you're a dog. Just bark into the phone. The vet will understand.

Doctor? He's a veterinarian? Anyone can get into veterinary school. You know doctor is supposed to be such a prestigious occupation. But it's really like one of the only jobs where you have to have your diploma right up there on the wall. It makes them seem so insecure, doesn't it? I really am a doctor you know. You think I'm not, just check it out.
