Sneak peek: Survey finds clients diagnosed with cancer worry about affording care for their pets, and other veterinary news


Here is a sneak peek of this week’s headlines



Good morning and happy Monday dvm360® readers! We wanted to wish all the veterinary receptionists out there a happy Veterinary Receptionist Week! As a recent commentary article by Harris Fitzgerel, DVM, BS, explained, receptionists have the hardest job in the clinic by a landslide. All their hard work and dedication to patients, staff, and clients does not go unnoticed or underappreciated, so we hope you all have a tremendous week!

As we celebrate the wonderful receptionists out there, here is what else you can find this week on

  • The CancerCare’s Pet Assistance & Wellness (PAW) program surveyed over 240 people diagnosed with cancer who have a dog or cat at home and found almost half worry about not being able to keep their pets due to treatment costs, among other findings.
  • On this week’s episode of The Vet Blast Podcast, Frank Bozelka, DVM, joins host Adam Christman, DVM, MBA, to offer advice on for veterinary students who will be graduating from school this year.
  • In his most recent installment of The Dilemma, Marc Rosenberg, DVM, explains how veterinary practices can be ethical but also competitive when it comes to building strong relationships with specialists outside of their clinic.
  • Royal Canin announced it has expanded its veterinary gastrointestinal portfolio to include 5 new diets that aim to help the digestive health of both dogs and cats by nourishing and supporting their gastrointestinal tract and microbiome.
