FUN NEW FORMAT! Listen in as Misty, Kelly and I discuss our opinions on some hot topics in equine vetmed at the moment. We are all working in spaces of equine veterinary medicine that allow us to hear from the trenches, so we brought up just a couple of things that we have been hearing a lot about lately….and we didn’t get to several major topics because there is just so much to digest. SO, if you like this format (AND if you have thoughts to add!) let me know and we will do it again and potentially throw in some guest comments or questions!
You get to hear about the experiences of Christina Malloy, who has been involved in many aspects of the veterinary field as she discusses veterinary social work on today’s episode of The Whole Veterinarian.
