I love a vet clinic during the holidays. My willpower evaporates with all the amazing treats that sit in the staff room. Homemade goodies, delicious chocolates, holidays are the time when you realize what a difference you are making in your pet parents’ lives by taking care of their family members.
With the holidays comes some stressful times. Old pets who can’t just hold on through the holidays, leaving painful grieving in their wake. Financial troubles leading to difficult decisions around patient care. If you are locum or have a locum working in your practice, this can be a trying time when communication is paramount.
