In this episode, Mike Pownall DVM MBA and Oculus team members Joop Loomans DVM PhD, Katie Ardeline BA CHRL, Sue Armstrong BA, CPCC, ACC and Alyssa Rubenstein come together to discuss and offer tips on dealing with the current situation surrounding COVID-19 in your veterinary practice. They bring insights from across the globe on business, leadership, human resources and marketing.
I created McKee-Pownall Equine Services with my wife, Dr. Melissa McKee, in 2002. Since then we have grown to include 4 equine hospitals. Even as a veterinary student I have had a strong interest in the business side of veterinary practice. I realized that having a strong business foundation in a hospital or clinic will give the framework to hire the best vets and staff and provide the best medical care. You can’t do that if the veterinary owner hates the business side of things or if the veterinary hospital is struggling to pay its bills because of poor financial management.
