Veterinary students spend four years studying gold standard medicine, but the unfortunate reality is that in clinical practice, there are sometimes financial or logistical barriers that prevent pets from receiving that specific type of care. How can we make veterinary medicine more flexible so that pets can still be treated outside of that gold standard?

This week on the Veterinary Innovation Podcast, Shawn and Ivan welcome Dr. Kate Boatright to discuss the spectrum of care, how providing more options improves veterinary care as a whole, and the roles that telemedicine and teleconsulting can play in improving the spectrum of care.

Dr. Boatright recommends The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are by Brené Brown.
