Cases limited by client finances are a daily occurrence for many small animal practitioners. As pets are considered part of the family by their owners, conversations between pet owners and the veterinary team can become emotionally charged, especially when finances are limited and decisions about care become life or death. These cases and the discussions that go with them can create moral distress and contribute to burnout for many veterinarians. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
