Global Consultant, Author & Lecturer
Despite the accessibility to large amounts of clinical information, it has never been more difficult for veterinary professionals and paraprofessionals to remain up-to-date, and to deliver the level of care to clients that is possible and expected. Changes are needed if veterinary practices are to continue to remain relevant to pet owners, given easy access to information from other channels.
*Set reasonable lifetime goals for the care of well pets
*Establish standards of care that can be embraced by the entire veterinary team
*Embrace consistency of care and its positive impact of patient care
