is there a difference between veterinary medicine and veterinary science?

I wanna know that is there a difference between veterinary medicine and veterinary science?? I've seen universities offering either vet med or vet science. Are they the same thing with different names? Or only the ones with a veterinary medicine degree can be a veterinarian??

    Are you talking the bachelor level?

    To be a vet, you need a DVM. Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.

    At the undergrad level, it doesn't really matter if you have a degree in vet med or vet science. Or even in Art. As long as you take the prereq courses a vet school wants, they don't care what your major is.
