TRENDS IN YOUR INBOX: All labs tests are not created equal

Each month in NEWStat, we will highlight an article from the upcoming issue of Trends magazine. Laboratory services provided at veterinary hospitals continue to evolve. Just look at the changes over the last 40 years: Parvo used to be identified by clinical signs and nearly absent white cell count, and red blood cell counts were done by a human (using a hemocytometer). Now, blood samples are simply placed into a piece of equipment to produce the counts. Evolution can be a good thing. New tests are being developed for old diseases, and new diseases are requiring new tests. The way diagnostic lab services are provided is evolving, and it is not slowing down.

Political Px: Veterinarians views

Of the more than 7,300 state legislators serving throughout the United States, only 21 (0.3%) are veterinarians. Representation in the U.S. Congress is only slightly better, with two DVMs currently serving (0.4%). But there are plenty of issues that have the potential to affect veterinarians, especially in their role as small business owners. In advance of Election Day next Tuesday, NEWStat asked the two veterinarians serving in Congress: Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.); Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.); and former Republican senator from Colorado Wayne Allard, DVM, to weigh in on the current election cycle. We asked them what they think are the main issues that will impact veterinarians and practice owners, and what kinds of changes might occur this election that could affect practice owners.

Coming Up Short

You’ve got more business than you can handle but it’s taking a long time to find veterinarians to join your crew. You’re not alone. Between veterinarians wanting to retire or reduce hours and competition from others offering an array of sign-on bonuses and other incentives, veterinary hospitals are being forced to get creative in facing new operational challenges.

Feel Something, Say Something
