    Yes. You will have assistants and they do not have to be physically strong. A tranquilizer can sedate a large animal while you work on it. In many cases the animal you work on are tame and the procedure is painless so you may not even need to use a tranquilizer. Elephants, for example, can be trained to submit to routine physical exams.

    Get a strong assistant to help you. Most of the time you can rely on restraints if they are needed. It also helps if you are smarter than your patients.

    That is totally up to you. If you want it, go for it.
