Focusing on the 3 Rs: Recruit, Retain, and Return

"We’ve spent a lot of time talking about our workforce crisis in its many forms, so it’s time for our jobs to take on a new form for the 3 Rs to be a realistic prospect."

The Changing Face of Veterinary Medicine

The topic of diversity, or the lack thereof, in veterinary medicine has seen a recent resurgence. We can't let this momentum die down.

Diversity in the veterinary profession starts as low as marketing the available opportunities to high school students and as high as hiring diverse candidates to positions of power and decision-making.

For Whom the Bell Tolls

Breed bans are beginning to crop up in international kennel clubs. Will this affect the U.S. veterinary and companion animal industry?

Veterinarians have an ethical obligation to their patients and companion animals as a whole. Should we follow international suit and support breed bans or keep pushing for scientifically driven positive breeding programs?

In Good Faith

It is veterinarians' sole purpose to ensure the wellbeing of pets, but what if you suspect intentional abuse? All veterinarians should be protected.
