VETzInsight takes Veterinary Partner one step further by presenting blog posts that tackle broader issues in a humorous, but sometimes poignant manner.

VETzInsight's mission is to support you and all colleagues by helping clients understand behind-the-exam room issues. Written by magical leprechauns (also known as VIN Community veterinarians and staff), VETzInsight encourages and accepts moderated comments from those that work in veterinary medicine and pet owners alike.

Let us know what you think, suggest topics, or submit an article for consideration by posting a comment on the site or emailing VETzInsight@vin.com.
