Isn't "medicii veterinari" redundant? Why is this not simply "veterinari" since veterinarian implies being a doctor?

Technically I think "Veterinary Doctor" should be accepted, since that is the technical phrase in English for the profession. Another person suggested "medicii veterinari" is redundant but I have no idea whether that's true in Romanian.

In English - yeah, the word is normally Veterinarian - but the longer phrase is the formally correct one, and that might also be the case in Romanian
