Veterinary Breakroom: Should Veterinarians Treat Their Personal Pets?
Welcome to the Veterinary Breakroom! In the breakroom, Alyssa Watson, DVM, and Beth Molleson, DVM, discuss the important, relevant topics affecting veterinarians today. When Dr. Alyssa’s beloved Dogue de Bordeaux, Luna, needed a digit amputation for a tumor, she had to decide if she was going to be Luna’s mom or Luna’s doctor. While a common practice in veterinary medicine, treating our personal pets can lead to questions about everything from clouded medical judgment to eligibility for insurance claims to legality of writing prescriptions. Join us in the breakroom as Dr. Beth and Dr. Alyssa discuss which situations they feel comfortable treating their own animals and which they prefer to have a trusted colleague step in.
