Self-care is something the people in the veterinary profession are rubbish at (if I must put it bluntly). I hear excuses about not having enough time or just not being bothered. Self-care is so important to do and the benefits include making ourselves feel much happier and healthier. Looking after ourselves properly can prevent us from getting compassion fatigue and burn out.

To inspire others to be and deliver more than they thought was possible, is my definition of leadership. It really is all about the relationship between the leader and the team and fundamental to this is whether the leader trusts their team and believes in people’s potential.
Brachycephalic ocular syndrome is a syndrome that occurs in breeds of dogs and cats with a flat face. These breeds present with many anatomical complications such as macro palpebral fissure, lagophthalmic, reduced corneal sensation, medial entropion, and poor tear films, which do not give sufficient protection to the eye hence why this syndrome usually appears.
Will Automation Change the Role of the Veterinary Receptionist? Our speakers for this discussion-based webinar were Alison Lambert, Kate McMorris, and Julien Renard. A bit different from the normal lecture-based webinars, this was a round-table discussion about how automation has changed work as a whole and how it has changed the role of the veterinary receptionist.
Ron Ofri is one of the most prolific of Webinar Vet presenters. I counted at least 31 previous webinars in recent years (there may be some I have missed), and there are at least three scheduled for next year. For any colleague interested in veterinary ophthalmology, and those in training, it would be worth viewing all his webinars as they represent the results of Ron’s many years at the forefront of this discipline.
