The Veterinary-Client Patient Relationship (VCPR) with Dr. Mike Tokiwa | VETgirl Veterinary Continuing Education Videos

In this VETgirl online veterinary continuing education video, Dr. Mike Tokiwa at Progressive Veterinary Care reviews what the Veterinarian-Client-Patient Relationship (VCPR) is and why it’s important. It’s based on the mutual trust and respect between the veterinarian and client-patient, including making decisions about the pet’s health, accepting responsibilities for providing the pet with medical care, advising the client about treatment options, keeping a written medical record of the patient, and how to get emergency medical care if the need should arise. The veterinarian must have seen the pet in person and regularly enough to have adequate knowledge of the pet to make medical decisions. So, what do you need to know as a veterinary professional? Before you dispense those medications, make sure you are aware of the VCPR. If you’re not sure, check with your state’s board of veterinary medicine. Tune in to learn more about the CVPR!
