Life in the veterinary practice is full of crazy moments, from rouge patients to clients giving out terrible advice. But sometimes the crazy moments come from you, as a recent post from DoveLewis Emergency Animal Hospital’s AtDove.org Facebook page revealed.
They posted this question to their followers:
“Fill in the blank: I’ve totally been that staff member who _________.”
