Not true. I believe they are both 4 yrs after college and then 2-6 more years depending on the specialty/residency. Who on here has claimed to know more than a vet?A veterinarian has more education and is usually more skilled than your average MD. A lot of people just don't get it. Just because a Dr.'s patients are dogs, cows, horses, everyday joes think they know more than the Veterinarian.
