The Veterinary Project

A community of veterinary professionals inspired to
live their best lives.

New Episodes Bi-Weekly

Every other week, Dr. Michael Bugg, DVM, and Dr. Jonathan Leicht, DVM, host conversations with a broad range of thought leaders, diving into topics like building resiliency and investing in our mental and financial health to creating hybrid veterinary careers or understanding the role technology can play in practices going forward.

We know you deal with gross patient situations daily, so that’s why you won’t find any stories about unblocking a cat on The Veterinary Project!

About The Veterinary Project

Have you ever noticed that most information for veterinarians is either all about pets or about getting your necessary CE credits in? Don’t get us wrong – both of those are important!

Welcome To The Veterinary Project, A Community Built By Vets For Vets And Veterinary Professionals!

No matter the kind of veterinary work you do, you’ll find a place here! You’ll hear how others navigate the ups and downs and find their own groove. But most importantly, every conversation will remind you there’s a community of people who understand it all.

Jonathan and Mike have experienced the good, the tough, and the gross (anal glands anyone?). As they worked to build the best lives for themselves and their families, they found others who were eager to do the same. And one thing they heard over and over – “I had no idea anyone else was dealing with this!” And that’s when the idea for The Veterinary Project came to life.

We are Veterinarians

Meet Your Hosts

We’re veterinarians but that’s just one of the many hats we wear. We’re entrepreneurs, speakers, podcasters, lifelong learners, family oriented, and two friends looking to help other veterinary professionals find purpose and create intentional lives in and out of the clinic.

We believe you can design a life you absolutely love, and The Veterinary Project is here to give you inspiration for that journey.
