  1. am from Pakistan am student of DVM but there is no scope in my countrt even am a doctor can you help me in this case my number is +923418849361 whats app number contact with me

  2. Why is this all female based? She said “don’t talk about your boyfriend” and don’t have your parents say I have a “daughter” .. just kinda threw me off

  3. Some great advice, some that I would have to completely disagree with. In terms of financial need to accept a position does not mean a person’s heart is not in it, in fact I would argue those of us who demand a higher wage are typically the ones who have been in this industry longer and want to continue in the work we love. Support staff deserve a decent wage, albeit not as high as a DVM, but a wage that will afford peice of mind to the point of not stressing a mortgage payment while monitoring a critically ill patient.

    I remember reading almost the same sentiment from Dennis Mccurnin that you made regarding wages. A CE I went to at WVC a few years back made the point that if a practice can not afford to pay their staff a higher wage it is better to reduce the number of staff and pay the remainder the salary of those you needed to cull. The point was that if you had a quality team member it would cost more to find, hire, and train their replacement than simply paying a decent wage in the first place. A member of the staff who has their heart in it may have to leave the field because at the end of the day bills have to get paid. As a practice manager or owner you have to make difficult changes to pay leases, the light bill, and salaries. Is it fair that a practice can raise their prices once or twice per year but not increase wages for anyone besides distributors vendors and practice owners?

    Our industry has essentially stagnated in the mindset that we should do pro bono work and subsidize it with low staff wages; or that a veterinarian’s degree is worth less than any other profession requiring that level of education. If, as a whole the industry increased client costs to reflect reality, equipment purchases, staff compensation, and ultimately quality of care would all rise as a result. But essentially writing off financial need of a staff member as selfish sets back your practice and the industry when you outrightly dismiss a person for valuing their education and experience.

    Only in veterinary medicine is it insulting to discuss money, Profit is what keeps the doors opened, wages keep the staff coming back, staff is what keeps the clients coming back.

    I could go on and on but I guess we will have to agree to disagree on the wage issue.

  4. do you have advice for me i want be a veterinary like you that work small animal i would voluteer but iam have promblem

  5. Vaccination comes with a lot of unintended consequences … even more than you might have thought of.

    You can read a lot of articles on this site about the risks and possible adverse effects of vaccinating your dog … from autoimmune disease or cancers to seizures, thyroid disease, allergies, digestive issues and even death.

    But there are other vaccine dangers that may surprise you.

    These may not be the risks you commonly consider when you make vaccination decisions for your dog … but they’re an important factor in understanding the hazards of vaccination … and they can affect your dog!
