Welcome to the Veterinary Breakroom! In the breakroom, Alyssa Watson, DVM, and Katie Berlin, DVM, will be discussing the important, relevant topics affecting veterinarians today. This week Dr. Alyssa and Dr. Katie weigh in on a recent article from the VIN News Service which suggested that we are all so busy right now not because of a pandemic pet boom, but because of backlogged appointments, less efficient COVID protocols, and staff shortages. Dr. Katie and Dr. Alyssa talk about some of the proposed solutions to these issues from the article and discuss how their own experiences in the clinic during COVID affect their reactions to these ideas. Grab a beverage and join us in the breakroom!
