Caffeinators, let's continue the DVM-credentialed veterinary technician relationship and education discussions! This episode, Leslie Wereszczak, MS, LVMT, VTS(ECC) came by the Vet Tech Cafe to talk about these dynamics. Leslie has worked in academia at the University of Tennessee for over 30 years and has a unique insight into how the dynamic of the credentialed veterinary technician-DVM student/intern/resident/faculty relationship has evolved during that time as our abilities and knowledge base as a profession have expanded. We also looked into DVM education and the idea that if we were able to instill in them as students who we are and what we can do and our role in a practice, perhaps little by little, we can begin to turn the tide a bit more towards utilization. There's also a brief VNI update as Leslie is instrumental in that process as well. Another not-to-be-missed episode!

Our mission at MVP is to educate and guide individuals and families to promote and effect the best quality of life possible for their pets. This can be accomplished through a holistic perspective with consideration of each pet's physical, mental and emotional well-being. We look at health and disease on a continuum, involving physical, mental, and emotional aspects, all of which are influenced by diet, exercise and environmental factors. We work with our companion animal patients' families, within the parameters of their own reality (how much time they have, their philosophies about health, what they are able to provide in terms of food and exercise to make positive change). Carolyn Cannon, DVM, CAC Our tool box is large and diverse, enabling us to individualize care using western medicine (including diagnostic, surgical, and dental services), supplements, acupuncture, Chinese herbal formulas, chiropractic, nutritional counseling, laser therapy, rehabilitation, and training and behavior modification. We do this always with compassion and patience, treating every pet just as we would our own.

Any regular listeners of the podcast won't be surprised to hear that Gen Xers and Millennials are going into debt for healthcare… but what if we told you that this time it's for their pets! More Americans are spending more money on healthcare for their beloved pets, which means insurance companies are getting in on the action and cashing in! Today we'll be digging into the wild world of pet insurance and what Peticare for All could mean for our four-legged friends (and zero-legged friends, and more than 4)! https://youtu.be/HGzTtPLrwWk Show Notes Why talk about pet healthcare? MOSTLY so Gillian and Ben can show off Coretta Scott Cat and Koda the Medicare for All dog. Obligatory cute pet appearances out of the way, Gillian introduces our guest for this episode: Chris Dupuis, DVM is a vet and owner of the Wheatland Animal Hospital in Neighborville Illinois. Chris definitely saw an uptick in pet ownership during the pandemic. Today, about 70% of US households own at least 1 pet, and Americans are paying a total of $32.3 billion on vet care. Gillian went down a research rabbit hole, and found that as of 2020 nearly half (47%) of pet owners had gone into debt for their pet, up from 36% in 2019. This average covers a huge generational divide, though: 66% of Gen X'ers have gone into debt for their pets, while only 23% of Baby Boomers have done so. Chris notes that one reason could be that veterinary costs have gone up a lot over the last generation, much like College tuition. Chris's dad, who founded the clinic, originally charged $8 for an exam in the late 1980s! For human health, of course most of us turn to health insurance to protect ourselves from large unexpected costs that might leave us in debt. What about pet insurance? Chris explains that pet insurance is very different: pet insurers directly reimburse pet owners for their (allowed) expenses, so vets generally don't get paid directly by insurance companies or have to deal with them at all. In Chris's experience, many of his clients buy pet insurance policies without realizing how little it actually covers, or the restrictions involved (a lot like Medicare Advantage plans!). So how bad is pet insurance? Virtually no plans will cover pre-existing conditions (which was common in human insurance plans until it was banned by the Affordable Care Act), including breeds that are frequently prone to certain health problems. There is very little regulation of pet insurance, so exclusions, deductibles, and payment limits are rampant. Both premiums and deductibles are often decided by the species, breed, gender, age and location of an animal - older pets in particular are very expensive and difficult to insure. Because of this, very few people have pet insurance: only 3.5 million (less than 2%) of pets in America were insured in 2020. Chris says that vets themselves are often not very educated on pet insurance options for their clients, in part because there are so many plans and the plan limitations are so complex. As important background, Chris explains that vets are generally underpaid (combined with massive college debts), and vet techs are EXTREMELY underpaid - sometimes earning barely more than retail workers ($15-$21/hour). This puts vet clinics in a difficult position when they have clients who can't afford to pay for urgent or emergency care for their pets. Unlike human hospitals, which receive some "uncompensated care" funds from the federal government for treating patients who can't pay, vet clinics and hospitals receive no such funds for providing free or charity care, and have very small margins. Both vets and vet techs have much higher than average suicide rates because of this stress, and there is extremely high turnover of vet techs. Chris confirms what many of us have experienced, though: there are wild variations in the costs charged by vet clinics for the same care. Chris believes the high outlier costs are in part due...

Intussusception and Other GI Accidents Dr. Marty Greer, DVM is back with host Laura Reeves to discuss Intussusception and other GI related accidents that may affect our dogs. “Intussusception is when the intestinal tract invaginates, or folds up on itself, so accordions on itself,” Greer said. “So, a piece of the intestine slips into another piece of the intestine, all aligned. And unfortunately, what happens when that occurs, is the blood flow is compromised to that part of the intestines and very quickly the dog gets into trouble. “(They have) vomiting, diarrhea, they look really sick, really fast. So, it doesn't look like your garden variety, ‘I ate grass and vomited' or, you know, those kinds of things. It ranks up there in severity with parvovirus (and bloat). There's a lot of different GI things, intestinal and stomach things that happen as intestinal accidents. “So, it's one of those intestinal accidents that happen. If intussusception happens, they're almost always young puppies. They're almost always associated with a heavy parasite load. “Any parasite, usually roundworms, but any parasite, anything that can make the gut hyper motile. So, increase the motility of the activity of the gut to the point that it gets really angry and it just sucks in. It's sort of like if you take off your sock and you kind of pull it wrong side out for part of it. That's kind of how it looks. It has this double loop of intestines, so it's usually because of hypermotility, although it can happen also with linear foreign bodies. “A linear foreign body is something long and skinny that gets swallowed that shouldn't be swallowed. It's a non-food item, so it's pantyhose, it's string, it's yarn, it's balloon strings. Those long strands that come off of the rug. Those throw rugs, rope toys when they pull bits off the rope toy. So those are the things that tend to cause foreign body intestinal intussusception. “Most of the time those dogs and cats end up in surgery because of the risk of intussusception or sawing effect of the long string foreign body kind of thing that just cuts through the intestinal wall. It can be pretty ugly. “But intussusception is unique unto itself because it may or may not be related to a foreign body. It may look like parvo, 'cause, it's a young dog, comes in acute abdomen, vomiting, anemic, sick. The real interesting thing is either you can feel it or there's sort of a characteristic. look of how intussusception looks on ultrasound. “So, if you have the suspicion of this, a good diagnostic tool is ultrasound. It's much more effective than X-ray in making the diagnosis, but feeling it is oftentimes what we can do. I've seen this in puppies as young as six or seven weeks old, and those puppies are relatively easy to feel because they're not very big and there's not a lot of body fat.”
In this episode, host Alyssa Watson, DVM, is joined by Daniel Langlois DVM, DACVIM (SAIM), and Harry Cridge MVB, MS, DACVIM (SAIM), MRCVS, to talk about her recent Clinician's Brief article, “Acute Pancreatitis in Dogs.” Dr. Cridge and Dr. Langlois comprehensively review this condition from both referral and general practice perspectives. They navigate the confusing topic of diagnosing pancreatitis and emphasize the most important aspects of treatment, including that steroids may actually be an option in a few cases.Resources:https://www.cliniciansbrief.com/article/acute-pancreatitis-dogsContact us:Podcast@briefmedia.comWhere to find us:Cliniciansbrief.com/podcastsFacebook.com/clinciansbriefTwitter: @cliniciansbriefInstagram: @clinicians.briefThe Team:Alyssa Watson, DVM - HostAlexis Ussery - Producer & Digital Content CoordinatorRandall Stupka - Podcast Production & Sound Editing
Caffeinators, if you crave greater utilization in your career, this is THE episode you need to listen to. Meg Harrington, BS, CVT, came by the Vet Tech Cafe recently. You may know her from her Facebook page, The Cattle Vet Tech, and we wanted to talk to her about all things large animal medicine as she is the first applicant for the VTS in production animal medicine through AIMVT. Through that conversation, she discussed her level of utilization and how her state practice act in Arkansas was recently updated help address the veterinarian shortage in her state through CVT utilization. Arkansas is one of the very few states that actually recognizes VTS's in its practice act, and she talked about an initiative that is aiming toward elevating the VTS position to the mid-level practitioner that is so en vogue right now. How did they do it? You'll have to tune in to find out, but we promise you'll be glad you did. And guess what? Through their research, DVM's in her state support it. State VMA's, VMB's, and VTA's-how can we follow in the footsteps of Arkansas?
