Dr. Roger and Dr. Karen are back!  Emerging from major career adjustments during the coronavirus pandemic and life changes, your beloved veterinary co-hosts are excited to be back and raring to go!  Have you noticed that trying to get your pet seen at your regular veterinarian has become increasingly difficult in the age of COVID-19 because the clinic is booked out days to weeks ahead of time?  Have you experienced 4 plus hour wait times at your local 24 hour emergency veterinary hospital?  As a pet owner, you are not alone, as this is a phenomena occuring all over the country as an unexpected consequence of COVID-19.  As many small businesses are experiencing major slowing of business in the wake of COVID-19, veterinary clinics are operating in general far beyond capacity.  

Experiencing the same in their clinics, Dr. Roger and Dr. Karen delve into the unique circumstances created by the coronavirus pandemic that have led to record numbers of pets requiring veterinary care.
