What three of dvm360's smart veterinarians are reading

March 13, 2018

Drs. Hilal Dogan, Dave Nicol and Sarah Wooten share the books that are blowing them away them right now and helping them prep for Fetch dvm360 in 2018.

Hilal Dogan, BVSc

Get a dose of resilience with Dogan

Cope with anesthetic loss, cope with toxicity on the job, learn to stop blaming yourself-and even try out meditation!-with Dr. Hilal Dogan at the next Fetch dvm360 conference.

“I recommend The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck. The problems that need solving in this world are endless. Decide which problems you want to spend your precious and short time on this earth solving and focus on them. You can't solve them all.”

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life by Mark Manson


Dave Nicol, BVMS, Cert. Mgmt MRCVS

Nail down solutions with Nicol

Mentoring new grads, managing a stressed-out team and the secret art of persuasion are all on deck for Dr. Dave Nicol's sessions at the next Fetch dvm360 conference.

“I'm reading The E-Myth Veterinarian by Michael Gerber and Peter Weinstein. If you like Michael Gerber and veterinary practice management, then you're going to freak out about Weinstein's collaboration with the king of small business success. The book is packed with great insight from these legends in their fields. It's especially pertinent to those who have practices that cease to function when they take a vacation.”


Sarah Wooten, DVM

Find your inner warrior with Wooten

Help associates over a fear of surgery, tackle online reviews and be inspired by the new game Vets Against Insanity with Dr. Sarah Wooten at the next Fetch dvm360 conference.

“I use these books to help frame my teaching. Becoming Supernatural is blowing my mind, but I don't think 95 percent of the population is ready for it.”
