Deborah Thomson, DVM, shares the benefits of incorporating a One Health approach at the clinic
During a dvm360® interview recapping takeways from her lecture at the Atlantic Coast Veterinary Conference, Deborah Thomson, DVM, founder and CEO of One Health Lessons, provided examples on best treating patients to keep them, their families, and the environment safe.
The following is a partial transcript of the video.
Deborah Thomson, DVM: The best way to [incorporate a One Health approach] is not just to think about the patient right in front of you that you're treating, it's also thinking about the family and the environment that goes along with that patient. So, you don't want to necessarily put on a topical flea and tick prevention if there's a toddler running around the house.
