Welcome to JustVetData

Hi! I'm Eden Myers, DVM, and I'm glad you're here. This is where I share some of what I know about veterinary professional issues. I am joined in this endeavor by Ryan Gates, DVM.

The urgent issue in veterinary medicine today is accreditation.  Don't Know Enough About Accreditation?   Read it.  Share it.  Act on it.

Thanks to Pulitzer prize winning writer Matt Richtel of the New York Times for his article "All Dogs May Go to Heaven. These Days, Some Go to Hospice".  Because of his attention, hopefully, these kind options will be available to many more people and their pets.

Check out Ryan Gates, DVM, and yours truly pushing the Hot Button of Vet Economics.  

Thanks to dvm360's Heather Biele, Adrienne Wegner and Brendan Howard of Advanstar Publishing for that, as well as:

… and hopefully more.  Maybe something like these:

I blog about veterinary educational issues like debt, accreditation and the cost of vet school.  

I discuss professional issues like compensation, employment, supply and demand.
