Welcome to

Unfiltered Discussions

Take a group of people who have kicked around the veterinary space for a few minutes, toss them in a Zoom room, and see what they have to say. The discussion can lead to interesting places of discovery with key industry insights.  When we mean unfiltered, we mean it. We’re talking: deciding a topic 10 to 20 minutes before we push the record button, skipping the editing, and uploading it as is. These are our opinions on the topic at hand, and we are ready to share them. We encourage you to listen with an open mind and join in the discussion with your comments.
