15. How does the doctor’s saying, “I am a doctor, not a veterinarian", underscore the larger conflict?

The doctor thinks of Kino and his people as animals. The systemic racism that Europeans felt towards indigenous tribes is a problem that transcends Kino not having the money to pay the doctor.
He felt that what Kino had to pay him was not worthy enough and that his kind should not even be considered people.
