The practice of Vet Medicine is a rewarding profession that has some challenges. Challenges that a layperson doesn't always understand.
Vet Med Labs is an online community for Veterinarians and Non-Vet Practice Owners to connect with others in our industry. Solving problems collectively as a brain trust or hive mind whether they be medicine, management, mindset, or marketing Issues.
Originally, it started as a website and blog project to market and promote veterinary care for better patient health and compliance.
As a veterinarian, I want my patients to live healthy and happy lives. As a member of our profession, I want the same thing for you. To thrive, and not just struggle to survive.
The mission has expanded slightly with this community platform on Mighty Networks. Veterinary medicine, especially for solo practitioners, can be somewhat isolating. I believe that by connecting with others, as part of a community, can lead to a more positive outlook and produce higher professional satisfaction and personal happiness.

There is a post in the welcome section to help you out. Once approved, log in, fill out your profile, location, add a photo, etc.
Once you get accustomed to the interface, you'll see that it has more functionality than what you have been accustomed to. Functions like being able to message other members directly. A search function that works and is divided up into topics (cases, software/equipment questions, people problems, etc.) and groups you can create (equine, ER, GP, etc.). Post articles, polls, host events.
