The Joyful DVM Podcast - Encouraging and Empowering Veterinarians, Veterinary Technicians and Veterinary Teams to create Joyf
Vet Med is an interesting career.Often a Love / Hate relationship.Spectacularly rewarding, and crushingly devastating all at the same time.The events that occur in veterinary medicine are just part of the job.The way that we respond to the events, is optional.OPTIONAL.That's really hard to see when a client is blasting us on social media, or a six-month-old puppy dies during a routine spay.Frustration, Fear, and Sadness are appropriate emotional responses… But then we take it too far…We make it personal.We tie up those events, and our resultant emotions, with our personal professional abilities and individual self-worth.Friends, those things are not connected.Unhappy clients and poor patient outcomes often steal our joy, but that an optional consequence.Music Credit: Music by Lesfm from Pixabay
“It's empowering to realize that you can actually make a difference just by making different choices in the things that you do every day.” This episode is sponsored in part by Cats of the Wild Podcast, Doobert.com, and Maddie's Fund. On this episode, Stacy chats with Ashley Byrne, Associate Director of Campaigns for PETA. PETA, short for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, is the largest animal rights organization in the world with more than 9 million members and supporters globally. In her discussion with Stacy, Ashley explains how PETA's philosophy centers on the notion that animals exist for their own purposes, not for human purposes. She describes some of PETA's recent campaigns, which strive to change the way people think about animals. Ashley also talks about PETA's Mobile Clinic, its 24-hour cruelty hotline, and Beauty Without Bunnies, a searchable database of companies that don't test on animals. She stresses the importance of knowing where your products come from. Additionally, Ashley describes PETA's stance on TNR and encourages pet lovers to adopt their pets from shelters rather than buy them from breeders. To learn more about PETA, visit their website.

AABP Executive Director Dr. Fred Gingrich provides an advocacy update for the membership in this episode of the AABP Have You Herd? podcast. Gingrich begins the podcast by explaining how AABP staff and volunteers work with allied organizations to advocate for veterinary issues important to cattle practitioners. He encourages our members to join AVMA to support the veterinary association that represents all veterinarians in the U.S. The AVMA Government Relations Division (GRD) is based in Washington, D.C. and has a staff the advocates both the federal and state legislative level as well as working with regulatory agencies to ensure our voice is represented. Cattle veterinarians represent a minority of the veterinary profession. According to AVMA data, food animal and mixed animal veterinarians represent less than 10% of clinical practice veterinarians. In the past 10 years, the U.S. has seen a 22% increase in the number of clinical practice veterinarians, but a 15% decrease in the number of food animal or mixed animal veterinarians according to the AVMA Census of Veterinarians. A grassroots effort by veterinarians is needed to make sure that representatives here our message on issues important to AABP members. Gingrich encourages members to sign up for the AVMA Congressional Advocacy Network at this link to receive messages about important issues as well as have the ability to send emails to Congressional representatives. Less than 2% of AVMA members donate to the AVMA PAC compared with 13-18% for other professional organization. Gingrich encourages AABP members who are AVMA members to donate to the PAC so that our voice is heard. Gingrich walks listeners through the proposed rules to schedule xylazine as a controlled substance. The primary concern with this proposed regulation is loss of access to the drug due to manufacturers and distributors being unwilling to comply with the regulations, especially on a state-by-state level. AVMA and AABP have advocated for passage of the Combatting Illicit Xylazine Act which would impose federal penalties on illicit use, but maintain veterinary use as prescription. Please send an email to your Congressional representatives using the AVMA Congressional Advocacy Network system to support this bill. He also discusses the results on xylazine use survey by AABP members which can be found at this link. The other issues discussed in the podcast are protecting the VCPR, utilizing telemedicine in bovine practice for established clients, and mobilization of credentialed veterinary technicians in bovine practice. Please support the advocacy efforts of AABP by joining us or renewing your dues today at this link.

After recently helping my little Dude Chip transition from this life to the next, I felt the deep desire to pay homage to all of the doggies I have had the pleasure AND honor to share time with. They ALL taught me lessons on loving, and those that have passed on have surely taught me lessons due to their dying. In prepping for this episode I thoroughly enjoyed reflecting on each furry babe and their impact on my life. And although the grief felt from their departure was unbearable at times, I wouldn't trade a second of it if it meant not getting to feel all of the joy they have added to my earthly experience thus far. I know I'm not the only one who has fallen fastly in love with a member of the animal kindgom ;) There is no question that we are blessed beyond measure for getting to share time with each and every fur, or furless, babe that graces us with their presence :) And for those not yet familiar with gaining the friendship, and eventual love, from the many animals on the planet: STOP WASTING TIME AND INVITE AN ANIMAL INTO YOUR LIFE :) My deepest condolences to those of you who have also felt the loss of a furry or furless companion... I send endless prayers for courage, grace and humility to those of you nearing the experience of helping your loved one cross over the Rainbow Bridge... And most of all I gently suggest that all of ya'll pet parents out there make it a priority to soak up every bit of time with your babes!! They are never here long enough. I hope my sharing inspires you to reflect on your own experiences along with the countless lessons your furry/furless family members have provided or will eventually provide you ;) All of my love...

How do you think your life should be?For that matter, how do you believe the world should be?We all have our opinions...... and when it comes to our own lives, the gap between what we believe it should be like and what it actually is, creates emotional turmoil.This is true in our vet med jobs, our relationships with others, and even our evaluations of ourselves.When we focus on what should be, we miss the opportunity in what is.Even when the reality isn't as we'd like it to be, embracing the truth creates power and opportunity... in veterinary medicine and in life. The land of "should be" creates shame, inaction, and hopelessness. It's binary. Either / Or. It's limiting... forcing you to experience your life as the effect of external things.It's victimizing... it builds a false belief that you have no control.It kills self-confidence. So what else? How about AND..."And" opens up opportunity."And" focuses on what's possible."And" creates compassion and hope.Music Credit: Music by Lesfm from Pixabay

AABP Executive Director Dr. Fred Gingrich is joined by AABP members from the Saskatoon Colostrum Company Limited (SCCL), Dr. Travis White, Director of Veterinary Technical Services, and Dr. Mike Nagorske, Director of Research. This episode is sponsored by SCCL and you can find information about their company on their website. If you are an AABP member interested in calves, we encourage you to join our new ad hoc Cattle Youngstock Committee. The first meal a calf receives is the most important and studies show that previous recommendations of 150 grams of IgG may not be adequate and up to 300 grams of IgG is ideal to ensure health and productivity in calves. White and Nagorske discuss the details of feeding protocols such as dosing regimen, incorporating this feeding with regular milk meals and starter rations. They recommend 70 grams/head/day of replacer to mimic this transition milk feeding for 10-14 days. This can be added to whole milk feeding or with milk replacer if the appropriate weight of milk replacer is removed to ensure the correct osmolality of the as-fed milk. Colostrum replacement products can be used to mimic this transition milk and our guests also remind listeners to be familiar with the differences between colostrum supplements and replacers. Studies conducted by SCCL have demonstrated up to a 50% reduction in preweaning morbidity and mortality and a 0.1 to 0.2 lbs. per day increase in average daily gain. We also discuss the return on investment (ROI) when calves are fed colostrum replacement products during the first 10-14 days to mimic transition milk feeding. The ROI can be up to 20% due to decreased medication use, increased gains pre and post weaning, decreased morbidity and decreased mortality. Overall, producers can expect an investment of $20-30 per calf with the biggest impact from that investment coming from decreased scours. Veterinarians should consider these new protocols to improve calf health and work with producers to implement them on their farms.Short communication: Effects of transition milk and milk replacer supplemented with colostrum replacer on growth and health of dairy calvesJ Dairy Sci https://doi.org/10.3168/jds.2020-18361 Evaluation of the effects of oral colostrum supplementation during the first fourteen days on the health and performance of preweaned calvesJ Dairy Sci https://doi.org/10.3168/jds.2008-1433 Evaluation of the effects of colostrum replacer supplementation of the milk replacer ration on the occurrence of disease, antibiotic therapy, and performance of pre-weaned dairy calvesJ Dairy Sci https://doi.org/10.3168/jds.2016-11652 Feeding colostrum or a 1:1 colostrum:milk mixture for 3 days postnatal increases small intestinal development and minimally influences plasma glucagon-like peptide-2 and serum insulin-like growth factor-1 concentrations in Holstein bull calvesJ Dairy Sci https://doi.org/10.3168/jds.2019-17219

Dog Lawyer Attorney Jeremy Cohen gave up his insurance fraud law practice to focus only on dogs. He is one of the few "dog only" lawyers in the U.S. Jeremy represents dangerous dogs that usually have a death sentence. He tells us that lots of people have threatened him and harass him, but it's worth it if he can save the life of a dog. Listen Now Maybe We're Not Smart Enough To Know Dr. Frans de Waal asks the poignant question, "Are we smart enough to know how smart animals are?" Many of us suspect that our cats and dogs have a sixth sense. They seem to know things are going to happen before humans do. Is this smarts, or is it hyper-observation of your every move? Maybe a little of both. Listen Now Supreme Court Puts a Value on Pets The Georgia Supreme Court will soon decide the value of a pet. Currently, the law sees pets as property, like a car or a toaster. The Georgia Supreme Court is set to rule on the value of the dog whose death was allegedly caused by a fancy, high dollar kennel that allegedly gave the dog the wrong medicine that ultimately killed her. The kennel says that Lola the dog was property, and the family should get her "market value" - which, because she was a free rescue dog, is nothing. Listen Now Chicago Gets First Cat Café Tree House Humane Society has been given approval to launch a coffee shop, which will double as a cat adoption center.

You know what they say about assumptions...It holds true in Vet Med as well.There is a collection of broad-sweeping beliefs that many of us have about our lives as veterinary professionals.The most influential beliefs are about the impact of our career choice on our time and income potential. Through the normal course of our veterinary careers, we've absorbed these beliefs from those who have gone before us. The perspectives are common.We've accepted, without question, these conclusions as truth.Absolute truth.Together they become the lens through which we see our lives and what is possible... ... and what is impossible...In this episode, I peel apart the assumptions, examine how these assumptions have led us to draw conclusions that hold us back, and share how you can put your own mind to work to find the solutions that will result in fulfilling Vet Med's life and career.Music Credit: Music by Lesfm from Pixabay

She travels all over the state of Colorado adjusting Top Level Competition horses to Backyard ponies. She loves the variety of her work and has a deep passion for chiropractic history and philosophy as it pertains to animal chiropractic. She has spent countless hours at the Palmer Davenport Archives to gain a deeper understanding of animal chiropractic's past.What many chiropractors don't understand is that animal chiropractic may not be covered under your human chiropractic statute in your place of residency. With this knowledge, Dr. Petra started to gain traction in the state of Colorado to help change the laws so animals could have access to well-qualified, certified, and licensed professionals. She and many others worked tirelessly to change these laws between the veterinary medical association and the Colorado Chiropractic Association. After a full year of negotiations, their Chiropractic Practice Act was passed allowing Doctors of Chiropractic to adjust animals!

AABP Executive Director Dr. Fred Gingrich is joined by Dr. Eric Moore, an AABP member who is Director of Technical Services at Norbrook. Guidance for Industry (GFI) #263 is part of the FDA's five-year plan which will move the remaining medically important antimicrobials under veterinary oversight. This means that all medically important antimicrobials that are currently marketed as over-the-counter (OTC) medications will be moved to prescription (Rx) status. About 95% of antimicrobials sold in the U.S. are administered by feed or water. The remaining 5% of dosage forms include both OTC and Rx products and this move will ensure that all medically important antimicrobials are under the oversight of the veterinarian who has a valid veterinarian-client-patient relationship with the producer. Moore discusses the products that will be affected that cattle veterinarians and producers use, as well as discuss what will happen as these products have a change in marketing status. This implementation will be different than the implementation of the Veterinary Feed Directive where on that date, no products could be used that did not have an associated authorization VFD from the veterinarian. OTC products will have their labels changed to Rx; however, those products currently in commerce after June 11, 2023, will be able to be exhausted and newly labeled products will require a prescription from the veterinarian. Moore suggests that veterinarians familiarize themselves with the regulation and make sure to communicate these changes to producers in their communities. Producers should make sure they have a valid VCPR prior to the need for the medications and that veterinarians continue to implement antimicrobial stewardship plans on their clients' operations. This includes the question “why are you using this antimicrobial?” as the first step in stewardship is preventing disease.

And yet we can't protect them from the inevitable. That's really hard.” - Dr. Renee Alsarraf “You can't push emotions down and expect them to not pop back up in other places.” - Megan Devine About our guest: Dr. Renee Alsarraf is a veterinary oncologist, lecturer, and philanthropist.

It helps for a veterinarian to be an animal lover. It doesn't help for her to be allergic to cats. But Karen Fine didn't let that stop her. Nor was she cowered by the fact that, in the 1980s, when she went to vet school, almost all the students were male. She followed in her physician grandfather's path and became a veterinarian who made house calls, “laid hands” on her patients and always took time to listen — both to the pets and the caretakers. Fine's new book, “The Other Family Doctor” is a collection of stories she amassed while practicing veterinary medicine. But it also functions as a memoir. She weaves in tales of her own pets: the birds, cats, and dogs who have taught her that caring for the animals in our lives can teach us to better care for ourselves. Join MPR News host Kerri Miller as she talks with Fine about pets, mindfulness and how even vets struggle with knowing when it's time to say good-bye. Guest: Karen Fine is a holistic veterinarian who owned and operated her own house-call practice for twenty-five years. Her new book is “The Other Family Doctor: A Veterinarian Explores What Animals Can Teach Us About Love, Life and Mortality.” To listen to the full conversation you can use the audio player above.

If you've ever wondered what the heck you're doing here in vetmed, then this episode is for you. We get to dive deep with veterinarian and author, Dr. Mike Bugg, about his new book, You're Gonna Get Peed On: How Veterinarians Can Keep Their Dream Job From Becoming a Nightmare While Working Less and Earning More. I can't recommend it highly enough - so make sure to check it out and don't miss the awesome bundle of goodies that he is giving away on The Veterinary Project website until the end of April!...About Michael Bugg, DVMDr. Michael Bugg is a full-time real estate investor and veterinarian with over a decade of clinical experience in veterinary medicine. After graduating from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 2008, he practiced as a mixed-animal veterinarian before shifting to a small-animal general practice.Like many of his colleagues, Michael struggled with the unique demands of veterinary clinical practice. Overwhelmed and burned-out, he often felt as if his career was spiraling into a nightmare. He struggled to get ahead financially despite the long hours he spent at the clinic. His entire life was impacted by his career stress—so much so that his wife gave him the moniker Miserable Mike. This, along with working amid the early 2000's financial crisis and witnessing once-retired veterinarians picking up shifts, motivated Michael to take back control of his life.In 2012, Michael and his wife, Rosalie, began building their real estate portfolio while working in their respective careers. Eventually, this real estate portfolio allowed Michael to cut back his veterinary hours to part time. In 2018, he decided to take the leap into real estate investing full-time and explore new ways to be a part of the veterinary community.Michael believes that the greatest way veterinarians can combat burnout is by taking charge of their personal finances and aligning every aspect of their lives with their veterinary vision. He is the cofounder and cohost of The Veterinary Project podcast, which aims to help other veterinarians thrive in their careers and intentionally design more joyful, fulfilling lives.Michael lives with his wife, Rosalie, daughter, Riley, and son, Ethan, in Saskatoon,Saskatchewan, Canada.Learn more at his website, The Veterinary Project or follow him on Instagram!...Resources that we mentioned or used in this episode:You're Gonna Get Peed On by Dr. Michael BuggThe 5 Minute Journal from Intelligent ChangeThe Miracle Morning by Hal ElrodSet Boundaries, Find Peace by Nedra TawaabConnect with Stacey or find more from The Whole Veterinarian!www.thewholeveterinarian.comIG @thewholeveterinarianListen on your favorite podcast player hereThank you for your time and support!
