Making the Move into Veterinary Health Care

By Mike Hennessy, Sr.
Successful veterinarians, like many business-minded health care professionals, seek to maximize opportunities and enhance the value of their practice. To do so, they require the resources and information that will enable them to provide high-quality care and build a thriving career. This can be challenging, especially in a rapidly changing and often volatile economy.
Much like other health care professions, veterinary medicine was greatly affected by the recession of 2008. However, recent reports indicate that as with the US economy, veterinary medicine is also rebounding. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, over 100,000 veterinarians were in practice in the United States in 2014.1 As their numbers continue to increase, so, too, does the demand for educational resources and outlets for their voices to be heard.
American Veterinarian™ is a new editorial offering from Michael J. Hennessy Associates, Inc, that publishes the latest news and expert commentary on current research related to veterinary medicine, including the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of species-specific diseases; product information; client education; legal and regulatory updates; and news and trends. The audience for American Veterinarian consists of veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and assistants in the United States.
This premiere issue provides education from a board-certified veterinary pathologist on Lyme disease in dogs; a brief refresher on envenomations; a client education piece on allergies in pets as we move into spring; advice on how to handle commercial property leases from renowned veterinarian and attorney, Charlotte Lacroix, DVM, JD; and advice for individuals who are looking to provide mobile veterinary services, from a veterinarian who is in the field.
We are excited to bring you this latest offering and look forward to growing this new publication with you, our readers, at the forefront.
 Thanks for reading!
