Veterinary Breakroom: The Peloton Debate (& What It’s Really About)

Welcome to the Veterinary Breakroom, where Alyssa Watson, DVM, and Katie Berlin, DVM, discuss important topics affecting veterinary professionals today. In this episode, we dive into a debate that’s gotten a lot of attention recently on social media. When Peloton, maker of premium fitness equipment, denied one veterinarian a “healthcare worker” discount, their response stirred up a conversation we’re continuing here: Do companies have a responsibility to recognize people who work in veterinary medicine as healthcare professionals? How can we approach this sensitive issue with people who don’t necessarily know what we do every day? Lace up your workout shoes and join us in the breakroom!
