More value needs to be placed on animals and their health.
Shelters consistently devalue animals and our profession by not meeting a standard of care with their surgeries. They are unprofessional and I couldn't disagree more with your coverage (dvm360 Leadership challenge: Working with shelters). Yes, we need to work with these groups, however, they are in the wrong and our profession has kindly bowed down too many times on topics such as vaccines being sold over the counter and now abdominal surgeries being done for nothing. An ovariohysterectomy performed on a human is $20,000 plus. I propose that if our prices went up instead of down the over-population problem would be corrected because of more value and worth being placed on animals. I am disappointed with your stance and these articles.
