Understanding Advocacy

There's no greater way to advocate for your profession than directly effecting change by getting involved and actively participating.

Success begins with the individuals. Join local groups, state VMAs, and national organizations to best advocate for the future of the profession you love.

The Most Underutilized Resource in Your Clinic

Veterinary nurses are trained in a multitude of areas. Don't let their skills atrophy!

Some veterinarians have a hard time letting go of responsibilities. But fully utilizing your veterinary nurses will allow you to see more patients, enhance your relationship with clients and employees, and even improve your bottom line.

The Pursuit of Happiness

As surprising as it might be to those outside the veterinary profession, puppies and kittens just aren't enough to ensure job satisfaction.

Job satisfaction is a combination of recognition, communication, and reconciliation.

Suicide: Our Professional Crisis

Most in the veterinary community are aware of the high rate of suicide in the profession. Is it still underrecognized? Is it getting better?

As awareness of the mental health crisis in veterinary medicine rises, some veterinarians have taken action to protect their colleagues and develop programs to address the issue of suicide head on.

Telehealth: Navigating the New Normal

While telemedicine has been around for a while, it's recently rocketed into business and could be the future of veterinary medicine.

Don’t fall behind in business by excluding telemedicine in your practice. There are many ways to implement it and customers, old and new, will be grateful.

Balancing Act

In a largely female profession, veterinary medicine often sees a struggle between the work-life balance of working mothers. Personal and professional forces can help alleviate that struggle.

Mixed Emotions

Given that most people consider their pets to be part of the family, it is not surprising that strong emotions are often encountered in the veterinary clinic. These intense emotions can affect the client’s decision-making and require careful handling by the veterinary team.

The Cost of Caring Too Much?

Veterinarians are in the unique and challenging position of balancing the medical needs of their patients with the financial needs of their clients. The strength of the human-animal bond can lead to emotionally charged conversations between pet owners and veterinarians, especially when finances are limited and decisions about care become life-or-death.
