Veterinary Visits in the Era of COVID-19

Why Is My Veterinarian So Busy?

New Project - 2022-02-23T145857.463
  • More patients per vet than pre-COVID
  • Increased pet adoptions nationwide
  • Increased anxiety for pets and their owners, some requiring extra time
  • Pets are needing “catchup care” after visiting their vet less in 2020
  • We know every pet needs help, and we do our best not to turn them away

Less Staff Availability
