    Our practice has monthly meetings that include the entire staff. We discuss new protocols and medications, review diseases and parasites, and analyze recent cases. When someone returns from a seminar, he or she will discuss the event with the rest of the staff. We have a large practice, so monthly meetings allow us to get together and share our knowledge.

    In our surgery room, we try to keep things neatly organized so they can be found easily. We use hardware organizers for the needles, eye and ear medications, syringes, and scalpel blades. Instruments that are autoclaved are kept in a separate hardware organizer so they can be located when needed.
