You know those conversations at conferences that happen after the lectures, back in the days when we still had big vet conferences, when people are chatting to the speakers and asking questions, and you hear things like: “This isn’t really in the books, but here’s what I think.” It’s in those kind of conversations that the best nuggets of wisdom appear – the nitty gritty real life details that you can only get from years and years of experience.
It’s exactly those kinds of conversations that we try to bring you at the Vet Vault Clinical. We don’t want lectures. We want to hear about the challenges, the tips, the stuff ups, the “this is how I do it”.
The back bone of Vet Vault Clinical is our series of podcasts, because, well, we love podcasts, and I don’t believe that there is a more convenient and engaging way to get new ideas directly into your skull than plugging in your head phones and connecting one on one with the person on the other end. And have we got just the right people that you’d want in your skull! We’re bringing together a team of world-class specialists from various fields and picking their brains in the conversational and enjoyable tone that you’re used to. I see listening to it as sitting around with a very clever friend over a coffee or a beer and asking them ‘so what’s new’, or ‘hey, can you clarify something for me?” This is kind of what we’re doing when we record the podcasts, and we are learning ‘sh….. A LOT,’ to quote Gerardo, in the process, and loving it, and we think you will too.
Dr Jeff Tinsley is a dermatology resident and lover of all things skin. We were fortunate to have Jeff with us on the Vet Vault Clinical podcast to talk us through what the perfect first consult with the itchy red ear case should look like.

Speaking of using antibiotics in a sensible way…were you taught that all cases with haemorrhagic diarrhoea need antibiotics? And we all know that the best antibiotic for GI disease is metronidazole, right? But wait… what if we told you that both of these commonly held ‘truths’ are simply not true?!
Professor Maddison did a fantastic episode with us on the subscriber-only podcast (link to super cast) that covers all of the myths and facts on antibiotic usage in GI disease. Click here to download the show notes for that episode, including a guide for sensible antibiotic choices in septic patients.

1. We wanted to make it easier for the listener to find the topics that they want. So we have split them into our performance and thrive episodes, then the clinical topics separate. That way they’re easily searchable by topic and you don’t have to scroll your thumb raw to get to the thing you want to learn about. Especially because we’re guessing that you’ll usually be doing something else while you learn.
2. They original Vet Vault will remain the same and will always be free to the veterinary community. We love getting and giving inspiration from our fantastic guests, and I still think that this is our main mission: to spread good vibes and connection and to tackle the thorny issues that you’ll face as a vet.
3. When we planned to launch the clinical podcast, we made a commitment to make it a really impactful and informative resource for veterinary professional development. We want to connect with the best of the best guests and team up with specialists from all over the world. All of that takes an immense amount of time, time away from our paid jobs and family, and money! Yes, we could have gone for sponsorship, but we suspect that when it comes to clinical content that advertising would a – annoy you, b – corrupt us to pander to the sponsors and c – erode the authenticity of the content.
