Welcome To Staff Safari

Welcome to the Staff Safari!  Our tour bus is provided by VeterinaryPracticeNews.com, and I am your tour guide. Our safari will make weekly stops at a variety of habitats, so let me introduce you to just some of the wildlife we will see along the way.

First we’ll stop at the porcupine’s habitat. This crafty fellow is armed with a body full of quills aimed at predators, but that scary outer surface just hides a big softy who would really only attack if backed into a corner. This is the veterinarian owner of the practice, who may let things ride until they reach their boiling point and then explode.

Next we’ll stop at the prairie dog mound. These cute rascals are hard to spot because they only come out to look for danger; otherwise they stay safely below ground. They are the kennel assistants who can never be found in the back. As we cruise along you may see a curious meerkat or two poised along the high rocks; these cute critters are constantly on the lookout as they plan ways to create some excitement. They are the gossiping technicians who enjoy stirring the pot.

The noise you start hearing at this point is our pen of chattering monkeys, although only a few of them are making all the noise—the front office team members who have a lot to say, but need to learn how best to phrase it. Our safari bus will then go over a bridge where you may spot one of our waterfowl, the lovely mother goose. She spends much of her energy keeping her goslings in line, but spends too much time chasing after those who go astray. This is the practice manager who often forgets to reward the good people on the team.

Even though none of these critters is in close contact with us on the safari bus today, I imagine you can all relate to the wildlife we’ll see as we move forward. Some of these animals, you may sympathize with; with others you may even see just a bit of yourself reflected in their characteristics.

We hope that by exposing you to this array of creatures, we will all gain an appreciation for what it takes to house such a variety of critters in the same terrain—the veterinary practice. All aboard the safari bus!
