Vet Tech Cafe - Brittany Laflen Episode

Vet Tech Cafe - Brittany Laflen Episode

March 21, 2021

Hello Caffeinators!  Throughout the life of this podcast, we've stepped out of our comfort zone in several episodes to talk about things we encounter in our field everyday. Things that matter. Things that we all know exist but don't talk about.  And we're doing it again.  Brittany Laflen, RVT, VTS (IM-Neurology) and AIMVT President-Elect came by to chat with us and we could've talked for hour about so many facets to this issue.  If you're in this field long enough, you will work with somebody who is expecting a baby, or be wearing those shoes yourself.  Before you listen to this episode, ask yourself two questions: What is your reaction when you find out a co-worker is pregnant?  Why is that your reaction?  I think many of us would answer both of those questions in similar ways, and that's unlikely to be for a good reason.  So let us pour you a cup of hot tea, coffee, or cocoa, and instead of talking, let's listen to what Brittany has to say on this one.  We think we can all learn a few things from this one about how to support our colleagues.

Vet Tech Cafe - Ed Durham Episode

Vet Tech Cafe - Ed Durham Episode

March 7, 2021

There have been so many episodes that we could easily have recorded hours worth of conversation, and this is yet another.  Ed Durham, CVT, LATG, VTS(Cardiology) has been there and done that as a veterinary technician, and then some.  His career is in its' sixth different decade and he gives us a glimpse into some of what he has seen and done along the way, including the infamous Phoenix Heart Event in 1985, cath lab work at the University of Missouri under the tutelage of a world renowned veterinary cardiologist, and the creation of the cardiology subspecialty VTS credential.  We didn't even get to many of his other accomplishments such as the cardiology book he edited and many others.  This is the kind of conversation you could have around the campfire and one that we hope to continue in the future.  We hope you enjoy it-let us know what you think!
