Picking up where Part 1 left off, with Part 2 of our conversation with Clinic Owner and Current CVMA President Dr. Enid Stiles shedding more light on the CVMA, Enid’s role as President within it, and the work they’re doing for the Veterinary profession. We also discuss some of the challenges that COVID has put on Enid’s position as a clinic owner including the use of Registered Veterinary Technologists, need for additional staff to handle calls, texts and e-mails from clients, and using new technologies to help with clinic operations.

Our full range of conversation topics in Part 2 includes:

– How COVID has impacted the use of registered veterinary technologists

– Utilizing technology (or attempting to) to improve clinic operational adjustments brought on by COVID

– Understanding what the CVMA does, including the intent of the CVMA Workforce Committee and CVMA Wellness Advisory Group
