Finding facts in the figures

August 1, 2006

It's the numbers that drive this special annual report. We reviewed more than 15 surveys specifically about the veterinary profession, and conducted two of our own, just for this issue. Our editorial team looked at 1000s of numbers. We talked to at least 40 experts to develop survey questions and concise analysis that pulls the key points from the study data. And that's not counting all of you who contributed by participating in studies.

How much do people love their pets?

June 1, 2006

Well, clearly a lot. Enough that they buy them designer clothing and luxurious dog beds, in addition to the basics. (The APPMA estimates that we'll spend $38 billion on pets this year.) Enough that they rearrange their lives to accommodate pets' needs, getting out to give that walk or making time to tease with a feather toy. And pet owners rearrange their finances, of course, to pay for veterinary care—and food and toys and daycare and carriers.

A new training tool

As you may know, we launched a new magazine especially for team members last fall—Firstline. (Hopefully you've seen it around the practice. I'd be even happier if you saw it in your team members' hands.)

It's time for spring planting

April 1, 2006

Spring. It's finally here. The daffodils are blooming. The hyacinths are up. The dogs come in almost every day with muddy paws, so I have semi-permanent footprints on the window sills where they peer out to see who's coming.

Keeping it between the lines

March 1, 2006

The world is full of contradictions. One person will say you need to do more saving for a rainy day, and the next will say you need to live in the moment and relish the joys each day brings. They may both be right. Which makes it your job to steer a path between the two.

Tough times can change your perspective

February 1, 2006

One of the great things about working on a magazine is that every month our team gets to meet more veterinarians. There are always new people calling with a question, sending us letters and practice tips, and submitting articles. Building those new relationships is very rewarding. And each one of you has an interesting story to tell.
