Talking about money can be a huge drain in our day-to-day lives. Veterinarians have these discussions all day long with pet owners.

I think we can all agree that team dysfunction and a toxic workplace are major contributors to the poor well-being of the individual veterinarian. Today’s guest studies and consults on a few things that I believe could significantly change the way our veterinary practices function on a day-to-day basis.
