The CatalystVETS was launched earlier this year with the purpose of creating a community of like-minded people who believe in our profession and want to make it better. You are one of those people, or you would not be reading this blog.

This is a critical time, and veterinary medicine is under attack.  There is a surplus of veterinarians (which will only get worse) and probably animal hospitals as well.  Corporations are overtaking our profession, and it seems every day more of our profit margin is being whittled away.

We are at a crossroads where we can either stand by and just let these things happen to us or take charge and create animal hospitals that thrive instead of just survive.

You obviously are someone who wants to make a valuable contribution to veterinary medicine, or you would not be reading this blog.  That being said, I am sure there are more of “us” out there- people who love veterinary medicine and want to do all they can to make sure nothing bad happens to this honorable profession. 

I need your help finding these people and connecting them with CatalystVETS.  CatalystVETS is not going to appeal to everyone, and that is fine.  BUT there are people who will get what we are talking about, and I bet you may know a few of them.

Here is what I need you to do:

  • shoot them an email about CatalystVETS.
  • On Facebook, share and/or like any post that resonates with you.
  • On Twitter- retweet our weekly post to your followers.
  • Oh yea, I almost forgot the face to face, just tell people about us-people you work with and friends you see at meetings-let them know that CatalystVETS is out there for them.

This is a critical time in our profession, and I believe TOGETHER we can all make a difference.  Without your help though, it will not happen.   All I know is I don’t want to look back in 10 years and wonder what could have been, and I bet you don’t want that either.   So I am asking you to use your networks and help lead other like-minded people to our community.

 Is there anything we can do to help you spread the word about CatalystVETS?

Have tweeted a link to this post and specifically sent it to a couple of people I know share the concerns. I’ll think if there is anyone else I could include.

Will forward the website to my former colleagues at Carver St. Animal Hospital. Will also forward to a doctor in Bahama. Your site and this organization is such a valuable resource. I always mention this group any time I talk to anyone about managing a veterinary practice. My practice is so much better because of this group.
I was considering the many colleagues and friends in other parts of NC or in other states, had you considered having other smaller groups form? just a thought
