Not many veterinary professionals would deny the unbridled joy of a new puppy or kitten visit. But it’s the complex emotions, accumulated experiences, and deeply rooted relationships (not to mention those wobbly legs and gray faces) that can make senior pet appointments the most rewarding and memorable of all. Mary Gardner, DVM, author, innovator, …

Our guests this week are Jules Benson, BVSc, MRCVS, AVP, and Emily Tincher, DVM. You might be hearing the phrase “spectrum of care” quite a bit these days, and veterinary teams are used to thinking of vet care in terms of how close clients can get to the “gold standard” recommendation with the resources they have. Jules Benson, BVSc, MRCVS, AVP, ch…

This episode gets personal (you’ll know how Garth proposed to his wife by the end), and so are we…
 
As we say farewell to 2022, we’d like to leave you with a special episode featuring multiple guests – all of whom are working hard to leave veterinary medicine better than they found it.

Our guests today are Elizabeth Maxwell, DVM, MS, DACVS-SA, ACVS Fellow, Surgical Oncology, and Candice Manganaro, DVM. If you've ever heard or thought things like, “Well, the specialist is just going to repeat all our diagnostics anyway,” “I don't want the ER vet to think I’m dumb,” or “Why do primary care vets always send us cases with no money?” …
 
For some of us, the title “President of the Board” used to conjure up a formal, slightly aloof person in a stiff suit, but that image disappears when we meet AAHA’s humble and kind immediate past-president, Adam Hechko, DVM. He may have held the gavel at board meetings for the past year, but he probably won’t ever be able to watch this episode, and…
 
December always seems like a leaky vessel – there must be a hole somewhere that’s letting time get away from us so fast!

Erin Frey, DVM…
 
As this episode is released, we’re heading into the winter holidays – a time, as all veterinary professionals know, often brings more than its share of sadness as well as joy.

Referring internal medicine cases isn’t always a straightforward decision. As clinicians, veterinarians can feel judged for referring cases others might handle themselves – and as veterinary team members, it can be hard to know what to tell clients when different doctors might handle the same case differently. This week’s guests, Patty Lathan, VMD,…
 
Niccole Bruno, DVM, took a personality test that told her, “You’re a visionary,” and we’re guessing no one who’s ever met Dr. Bruno would doubt it for a second.
