When Veterinary Team Brief approached me about writing this article, I was a little reluctant. “Dirty laundry” indeed! But after giving the subject some thought, I decided, Why not? Certainly I can find some helpful statistics to bring about a solid article.
What I did find was that in the worlds of physical therapy, law, and counseling, research reveals that dating clients is common, although not looked upon favorably. I was not able, however, to find statistics regarding veterinary professionals dating clients. Instead, I moved my research to the “field” and asked colleagues and friends about their personal experiences. Some of their feedback surprised me.
