    In an emergency out in the field yes but not in a hospital or clinic. A doctor would need a medical license to treat human illnesses and to prescribe medicine. .

    Not as part of their normal practice, but their skill and willingness to help would be handy in an emergency.

    Not really, but they should.

    No, they would lose their license.

    First, it would be very illegal, so doesn't happen in the real world.

    My mom was a corpsman in the Korean war, said another corpsman was doing a lot of surgical practice but the many lives he saved, nobody is complaining.

    Maybe in an emergency first aid scenario, but not off the street.

    Most states in the US, do not allow vets to work on people.

    Maybe themselves ....or they might put a few stitches in a close relative.

    Not legally. They might take a splinter out of a friends finger or advise a friend to see a doctor.
