I've never been one to play by the rules! National Veterinary Technician week is October 16-22 but I'm jumping the gun with my guest this week Anna Santos. Anna holds a BS, is an RVT and a LVT and has worked in veterinary nursing for over 20 years.  Her varied background demonstrates all that is possible in a career such as veterinary nursing.  We talk about all the things in this episode: -the impact of compassion fatigue and burnout on vet techs -the need for strong women leaders in veterinary nursing -how compassion fatigue impacts the clinical tech vs. the lab animal technician -career paths -how she has learned to take care of herself to be sustainable in this field I mentioned a Ted Talk I recently watched that highlights how veterinarians (and vet med) infiltrates all aspects of life. You can check that out here.  Also, registration for my 6-month group coaching program for women veterinarians, Living a Life You Love is open until 9/30/22. Click here for more info.

“Acting your wage” is the latest social media, well, TikTok, trend to hit the US workplace. Gen Z'ers have taken “quiet quitting” and defined it in their terms. Bonus, there's also taking a “workcation” popping up on feeds everywhere. Viewfinders, you don't want to miss this one! Hosts Dr. Ernie Ward and Beckie Mossor, RVT, explore what “act your wage” means for veterinary practices, the root causes of these issues, and changes you can make in your management and leadership styles to help. Viewfinders, these trends are primarily in response to chronic low wages and benefits, poor or toxic workplace cultures, and managers more focused on profits than people. There's a lot to discuss on this topic, and we'd love to hear your thoughts and experiences. Please email us at veterinaryviewfinder@gmail.com or drop us a DM on our socials.

Have you ever worked in a veterinary clinic that split vaccine dosages? What about recommending half-dose heartworm or flea preventives? Ever stray so far off label that you felt uncomfortable? If you've ever encountered one of these dilemmas, you don't want to miss this episode! (Although you may need to turn the volume down, so your boss doesn't hear.) Hosts Dr. Ernie Ward and Beckie Mossor, RVT, share real-life stories of vet practices that may have pushed a little too far beyond the scientific and moral boundaries of veterinary care. Importantly, the pair discuss the impact of observing these uncomfortable acts on our mental health and physical well-being. In fact, they speculate these “tiny tensions” are a major contributor to veterinary burnout. Our hosts offer practical, although potentially painful, advice for anyone seeking to “stand up against” a questionable clinic protocol or practice. Viewfinders, this is yet another good discussion of a complex - and confounding - problem in veterinary medicine. It's a good one!

Feedback: everyone needs it to improve. But what happens when we get unexpected negative feedback? How can veterinary professionals separate “context from content” and learn the valuable lessons nearly any form of feedback offers? For a “profession of perfectionists,” there's a lot to discuss in this episode! Hosts Dr. Ernie Ward and Beckie Mossor, RVT, start by defining what valid feedback looks like in veterinary practice. From there, they review why nearly any form of feedback can be beneficial for your professional (and perhaps personal) growth, why your network is essential in evaluating feedback, and how to remain in control, even when you don't like what, or how, feedback is being delivered. Viewfinders, there's a lot to consider in this podcast that transcends “feedback.” We'd love to hear your thoughts!

“Quiet quitting” has gone viral. This week we examine what “quiet quitting” really means, how it's actually been around for a long time (thank you, Gen Xers), and how you can learn from this workplace trend. In our 300th consecutive weekly episode (!), hosts Dr. Ernie Ward and Beckie Mossor, RVT discuss the latest Gen Z TikTok trend of “quiet quitting.” The pair explain how this applies to veterinary professionals, and why this may be a healthy movement. Dr. Ward reminds the Viewfinders that, “You are not defined by how many hours you work.” He shares why establishing healthy boundaries between work and personal life are essential for a long - and satisfying - career in veterinary medicine. (And he's been doing this for over 30 years.) Beckie examines the workplace pressures many veterinary professionals feel if they “take time for themselves” and how many clinics may be reinforcing toxic relationships with work by “texting you at 2 a.m. to ask about work" and then getting upset if you don't respond immediately. Someone needed to hear that... Viewfinders, thank you for allowing us to get to 300 podcasts! Back in 2016 when we started, we could not imagine how much we'd grow and how much fun we'd be having!

Do you throw a party when a team member leaves? What about birthdays or work anniversaries? How do you make celebrating employees fair and equitable? Does it sometimes feel like high school all over again in terms of who gets recognized, how, and when? If you've ever felt unsure about what, who, and how to recognize your team's special events (and some maybe not so special happenings), then you'll definitely want to check out this week's Veterinary Viewfinder! Hosts Dr. Ernie Ward and Beckie Mossor, RVT explore how to gracefully - and strategically - celebrate a team member's leaving. Dr. Ward explains why many veterinary clinics don't commemorate when a staff member leaves for a competing practice across town, but are quick to “throw a party” when they move across state. Beckie details how saluting staff for a wide variety of milestones can boost your culture and encourage job satisfaction. Both hosts offer simple, and affordable, tips on making meaningful staff recognitions and advice on keeping things fair.

The Veterinary Viewfinder was founded in 2016 to “tackle the toughest topics in veterinary medicine.” One of the tough topics we've covered repeatedly is the growing movement to ban non-therapeutic, non-preventive procedures such as feline digit amputation, often referred to as “declawing.” This week we're excited to introduce you to the Canadian Animal Health Technician (same as US RVT/CVT/LVT) who succeeded in the enactment of a law banning declawing in the Province of Quebec. If you're wondering, Quebec is the second-most populous province with a population of over 8 million. Not bad for a vet tech! Hosts Dr. Ernie Ward and Beckie Mossor, RVT are thrilled to bring you a master class in how one person can bring about big change. Leading the class is the amazing vet tech (animal health technician in Canadian-speak) Alexandra Yaksich, BSc., AHT. Alex wears many hats. She is currently working as a freelance writer, communications consultant, content creator, and relief animal health technician. The story we share this week is about how anyone can overcome their doubts and fears to create change. Viewfinders, prepare to be inspired! Alex is a loyal podcast subscriber and decided to email us at veterinaryviewfinder@gmail.com and tell us she had a story to share! (You can, too!) If there's something in your world you want to improve or change, Alex lays out a practical, logical, and systemic approach.

It's no secret many (most?) veterinary clinics across the nation are feeling overwhelmed. Our clients and patients must wait days to weeks to be seen or endure long waits in lobbies for "walk-in" appointments. Could shifting to a "hybrid urgent care model" help ease the stress many veterinary professionals are experiencing? Let's talk about it. Hosts Dr. Ernie Ward and Beckie Mossor, RVT discuss how any general veterinary clinic could shift to a "hybrid urgent care model" and the potential benefits. Dr. Ward emphasizes that this type of strategic change could help by changing our team's perspective and expectations on an already busy day. Beckie shares that many vet techs who would like to work ER cases but can't manage the hours may also find this model appealing. We'd love to hear your thoughts and opinions. We'll continue to promote and advocate for innovations that improve patient care, client service, and staff well-being.

Recession Proof? Have Veterinary Clinics Been Killing Growth Due to Staff Shortages, Placing Them At Risk During Recession

We've heard too many stories the past few months of veterinary clinics not taking new patients or unable to see routine care appointments for weeks. Have the pandemic, workplace shortage, an inflation made the veterinary industry potentially less “recession proof” than before? Viewfinders, let's tackle this tough topic! Hosts Dr. Ernie Ward and Beckie Mossor, RVT discuss how some clinics may be inadvertently putting themselves at increased risk of recession impacts due to not accepting new patients, long waits for annual care, and rising prices. Dr. Ward points out why this potential recession may be unlike any other for the veterinary profession as a multitude of veterinary market forces conspire to threaten our traditional economic resilience. Beckie discusses her concerns that too many veterinary practices may not appreciate that today's clients may not be as loyal as in the past and that vet-flation may cause many pet parents to price shop out services. Our hosts discuss the “veterinary workforce translocation” that may have additional impacts on how independent vet clinics operate in the future. They also discuss steps every clinic needs to take now to lessen the affects of a potential economic downturn. Viewfinders, we hope this episode gives you ideas on how to weather the economic storms that may lie ahead.

When lifestyle changes forced Leilani Mustillo to consider leaving Vet med, she connected with friend and fellow industry colleague Dr. Sean Neate to discuss a solution to both the career changes she faced and an opportunity to improve Telehealth. After a couple long brainstorming sessions, Animal HealthLink was born, with the vision and mission to redefine the veterinary emergency and after-hours triage model and be the veterinary industry standard for triage.

As an advocate for RVT advancement, she has a love for mentoring and training those who are new to emergency and critical care medicine, with her favourite topic being emergency triage. Sean grew up in Alberta and originally obtained a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Alberta, but switched careers and graduated from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Calgary. After graduation, Sean completed a rotating small animal internship at a referral institution in Calgary. After spending several years in referral and emergency medicine, he moved to family practice.

A viral news story involving a Maine veterinary clinic and relinquishment of a pet whose owner couldn't afford treatment has been widely circulating on social media. This week we address many of our concerns from sloppy reporting to missed media opportunities to the practice of pet relinquishment. Our full support and hearts go out to the entire veterinary team involved with this challenging case, and hope this conversation will help others facing similar situations. Viewfinders, there's a lot to discuss on this tough topic. Hosts Dr. Ernie Ward and Beckie Mossor, RVT review the recent case involving the Maine Veterinary Medical Center and a client who relinquished her pet because she couldn't afford the $10,000 fee. Dr. Ward begins by examining tactics to handle media inquiries involving disgruntled clients. Beckie Mossor, RVT shares her own experiences and why the art of compromise is essential in dealing with these cases, especially in an emergency setting. Dr. Ward reviews his opinion on financial relinquishment and confiscation of pets. He also encourages clinics to role-play these scenarios and create plans to help when confronting financial constraints. Viewfinders, while our hearts are broken for all involved in this case, we urge our colleagues not to resort to online client-bashing and hurtful rhetoric. It can be challenging to practice radical empathy and compassion, but we hope you can remain respectful and professional when posting your thoughts.

Caffeinators, have you ever had an idea for a veterinary product or invention but you had know idea to make that a reality? Or perhaps an improvement on an existing product that you know could be better but never knew what to do? Then this is the episode for you! As veterinary technicians, we're quite resourceful and possess great powers of ingenuity when it comes to connecting tubes to machines, or just making stuff work. That's where Alli Butler, RVT, with MILA International comes in! Jeff worked with her for a couple years at the veterinary school at Tufts University while Alli was working on her biomedical engineering degree. She has since been hired as a biomedical engineer at MILA working on these exact things-how to create products that will make our jobs easier. This discussion takes us through her path to MILA (you'll love this story!), what her job looks like there, projects she's working on, and the incredible CE program they've started. If you're going to be at ACVIM later this month, make sure to stop by the MILA booth and say hi to Alli and let her know you heard her on the Vet Tech Cafe and thank them for supporting veterinary technicians!

We hate to break it to you, but the pandemic isn't over yet! This week we examine some of the less-discussed impacts of the “Pandemic Period” in veterinary medicine. Viewfinders, this is one interesting conversation! Hosts Dr. Ernie Ward and Beckie Mossor, RVT take listeners on a circuitous route around some of the lasting effects on our psyche post-pandemic. From fear of coughing in the exam room (or the terrifying sound of a client coughing!), to crowded elevators and lobbies, to learning potentially disagreeable facts about co-workers beliefs during lockdowns, this podcast packs a powerful punch! Viewfinders, what lingering effects are you observing these days? Any advice for colleagues struggling to get “back to some form of normal?” Share on our social media or email us at veterinaryviewfinder@gmail.com.
