New Episodes Every Wednesday

Each 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.

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.

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.
