Vet Tech Cafe - Tabitha Kucera Episode

July 26, 2020

Are you ready to talk behavior?  Grab that cup of coffee and join us for our conversation with Tabitha Kucera, RVT, CCBC, KPA-CPT.  It was such a joy to chat with her-she's so passionate about behavior you can't help but be drawn in by her excitement.  She drops some serious knowledge in this one, and will hopefully inspire you to look at your own clinic environments and patient interactions to be more mindful of patient well-being.  We'll talk all about training and certifications, CE, patient visits, home consultations, pain scales, and so much more!  We just know you're going to enjoy this episode as much as we did!

Vet Tech Cafe - Emily Ione-Kinney Episode

July 11, 2020

This week, Emily Ione-Kinney stopped by the Vet Tech Cafe to talk about bullying in the workplace.  This problem takes many forms, and we discuss what lateral violence looks like (those with an equal title-dr vs dr, tech vs tech, etc) and what vertical violence looks like (dr vs tech, for example).  She offers many ideas for solutions to this complicated and rampant problem in our field.  She also shares some eye-opening statistics and stories from an informal survey she conducted recently about bullying in the veterinary hospital setting.  Grab yourself a cup of coffee and join us for the discussion!
