Spending Too Much Time As A Veterinarian Running On False House Calls? What To Do

by Hugh Larson

Are you a livestock veterinarian that spends a lot of time on calls to farms and barns, and sometimes you are called out when it's only a false alarm? If you are, and if you could send the others in your office to determine if the situation is an emergency, you want to get the right tools to prepare your staff to make the proper assessment. If you get veterinarian students, assistants, or other medical professionals that are used to working with animals, have them trained to use these things and have them assess the animals before you drop everything in your practice to see what is going on.

Portable Doppler

All of your staff members should be able to easily use a Doppler, so they can take the heartbeat of the animal that needs care, and so they can also take the heartbeat of any young that are inside the pet that needs help. These are small, affordable, and an easy way to tell if the animal carrying the young is in danger, or if the young are in danger because of their heart rates.

Ultrasound Machine

Being able to do ultrasounds on the go is something that can help save an animal's life. If you can see what the young are doing, the development, or if there is something wrong, then this is the item to have. You can also look at other body parts with the ultrasound machine, and you can buy a used option until the on the go veterinarian service is paying off.

 Portable IVs

You may be able to save an animals life by giving them the fluids and the nutrients that they need to keep going. You want to make sure that all the professionals in your office are trained to put in IV in any animal that may need it, and that you always have sterilized tools and the IV bags that you may need to do the job.

If you would like to be able to treat more animals at their living location, but you also don't like being called out on calls that don't really need your attention, make sure that you have this equipment and that your staff are all ready to use it. There are a lot of different options for veterinarians to do their work on the go, and you just want the equipment that is necessary to save your patients.

About Me

Good Healthcare Requires Treatment of Your Mind, Body, and Soul

I have worked in a supportive role in the medical industry for over 20 years, and I have been amazed at the advances in medicine that have been made. While it is always great to hear about a new medication that helps cure a disease or a new surgical procedure that can help someone live a normal life again after an injury, I have been especially amazed at the research that has shown just how much our physical and mental health are connected. Since I keep on top of all of the amazing medical studies being performed and I know others are too busy to hunt them down themselves, I decided to start a blog to share my favorite health tips for keeping both your mind and body healthy.
