In this case, a cat, who just happens to be a French sir, visits the hospital for routine lab work prior to a dental cleaning. He finds himself diagnosed with a condition that could have gone unnoticed had pre-anesthetic lab work not been performed. Lauren and JJ discuss specific types of lab work and what the results mean to veterinary professionals, as well as the surprising controversy of whether lab work should be done at all. Seriously???
The ladies also discuss the importance of checklists as presented in Atul Gawande’s 2009 book The Checklist Manifesto.
