Welcome To “Cutting Edge”

Posted: October 16, 2009



Welcome to “Cutting Edge,” a blog provided twice a month by Veterinary Practice News and yours truly.

The blog will appear on the first and third Mondays of each month, and will deal with a variety of veterinary life topics--surgical or not, scientific or philosophical, deeply profound (let’s even say earth-shattering) or ever-so-slightly impertinent.

We will explore surgical principles, new products and emerging concepts, current techniques, oncology, anesthesia and pain management, relevant articles and recent professional meetings.

We will shatter misconceptions, blow apart urban legends and expose bad habits--of course, always in a respectful and ethical way.

We will share thoughts on communication and relationships with pet owners, colleagues and specialists.

The concept of this blog is to present, in a few paragraphs, topics that can’t be addressed in “Surgical Insights,” my monthly surgery column in Veterinary Practice News. But topics won’t be confined to surgery. 

Feel free to comment on my future rants so that we can start a dialogue, share stories and help each other out.  Who knows, maybe ideas for future blogs will come out of your feedback!

See you on the Net.
