Podcast: (Human) Kids in the Veterinary Clinic!


The veterinary profession is now dominated by women. This week we tackle the topic of veterinary professionals having children, bringing our kids into the clinic, and handling clients’ children during veterinary appointments. Co-hosts Drs. Ernie Ward and registered veterinary technician Beckie Mossor share tales of crates used as cribs, a mother who demands Dr. Ward share EVERYTHING with their child during an appointment, and then changes her mind, Beckie talks about vet techs being used as “babysitters” during exams, and Cyndie reviews her experiences as being a new mom intersects with practice life over the past few months. Dr. Ward discusses the importance of paid maternity leave for veterinary professionals, and the trio offer advice for anyone planning a pregnancy or wondering how to tell their boss.
