Figure 7: Flowchart of Technician Utilization for Allergic Skin Diseases

A veterinarian working with two technicians can see two appointments in the time it would otherwise take to see one. As Figure 7 shows, technicians can interface with clients from the beginning of an appointment through discharge and beyond. Having established a relationship with clients, they can be trusted team members for follow-up checks and maintenance program assistance. Working this way, a diagnostic plan can be developed for multiple patients in the time it could have taken to see only one patient.
