COVID-19 Survey Follow-up

COVID-19 Survey Follow-up

As part of Veterinary Practice News’ efforts to provide information to help everyone get through this ongoing crisis, we need your input for a follow-up survey to the one we ran in April.

During this unprecedented time of uncertainty, we want to help by determining how COVID-19 continues to affect our industry. The best way for us to do this is to gather additional feedback on how practices/hospitals across the country are being impacted now and in the future. Please take a moment to respond to this very important survey so we can share common insights to benefit everyone.

Our hope is that sharing your challenges, your strategies, and your needs will help others get through this successfully.
