Dermatology is a field where you as a Veterinary Nurse can play a pivotal role, assisting vets in the work up and treatment of cases in clinic and supporting clients in the management of skin conditions at home.
Veterinary Nurses can help to ensure the patient receives the right dermatology workup, improving their chance of a correct diagnosis. This coupled with support with treatment means a better patient outcome.
Veterinary Nurses can offer much greater and more available levels of support for the owner in skin and ear cases, which means a better level of service and therefore better value for money.
Utilising Veterinary Nurses more, means taking a skill already available to provide a new and improved service in an area accounting for around 30% of all cases seen in cats and dogs.
The Vet can now rest assured that the case is being approached and managed properly by them, through effective delegation to you, the Veterinary Nurse.
This is a chance for you to develop a skill set in a way that makes a real difference to the practice, the owners and the patients. Working collaboratively with the Vet to make pets everywhere more comfortable.
