Essential Workers: My Wife is a Veterinary Surgeon per AVMA
My wife is a veterinary surgeon. She's been told there's a possibility veterinarians and veterinary specialists may be considered "essential workers"

This information was emailed to her from the American Veterinary Medical Association.

Their peer reviewed journal is called JAVMA.

 Quoting: Jake


The State. She's a board certified veterinary surgeon. They are still determining who will and won't be "essential".

Yep. And many doctors offices that do outpatient surgery will be considered "facilities" to treat.

Plastic surgeons even, and oral surgeons.

Exactly.

I don't care how bad a virus gets. If my dog or cat gets sick, I'm taking them to the vet.

Bypassing some regulations...

Vets are well-qualified to do TESTING for humans...and other assessments needed and to monitor vitals etc.


I'd trust my Veterinarian more than MOST doctors for medical care...and has a better kennel-side manner too.!

At some point they will probably start using vet clinics and their staff to help treat all the human patients when hospitals are past capacity

Dentists have to shut down here in San Jose.

I'm going to update the OP. It wasn't the State, it was the American Veterinary Medical Association that informed her.

Teeth aren't essential. My wife can sew you into the carpet and keep you alive with half of your organs taken out. Not really with half of your organs... but you get the picture.

A wound is a wound. Surgery is surgery. There are some differences, yes, but plating a bone with pins or doing a hip replacement is all the same. Same education, same experience... only her patients can't tell her anything.

I should also add that coronaviruses are very common in dogs. Internal medicine specialists would be well equipped to manage human cases. The letters for an internal medicine specialist would be DVIM. So their name would be: Name DVM DVIM.
