The "Veterinary Pistol" or "Veterinary Pistol - 9" is an integrally-suppressed, bolt-action secondary weapon, a modern evolution of the World War 2 covert weapon the Welrod.

The pistol is the quietest weapon in the game, which in theory would make it great for stealth operators. However, it suffers from a low rate of fire due to the bolt-action operation.

It is the one of two weapons that do not have an unsuppressed variant, the other being the Honey Badger.
