Veterinarians may have the ability to save a loved one’s life, but that may be a long shot for some patients.
A study published in the journal Veterinary Practice found that veterinarians may not always have the resources to get their work done.
The study, which included nearly 700 patients with chronic conditions, found that some patients may be able to save their lives with the right veterinary care.
“Many of these patients are suffering from some type of chronic disease, and this may be related to their condition, so we thought this study might help us understand if there’s something that veterinaries can do to help save their life,” said Dr. Michael G. Hensley, who conducted the study.
Hensley said his research shows that veterinars have a lot to offer, but they’re not the only ones who may be in need of help.
“We think we have a real opportunity to do more for the people that are suffering,” he said.
Horsley said the findings are important because they help explain why some patients with health conditions are not getting the help they need.
“There are a lot of misconceptions out there about the veterinary community,” he told Vice News.
“They’re not really trained to care for these patients, they’re trained to do what they’re told, and it’s not always the case.”
While vets may be more aware of the need for resources and more able to respond, they may not be ready to offer any assistance to patients.
“I’m not sure we’re prepared to help them.
There are some vets who can do a great job, but I don’t know what that is,” Hensling said.
Veterinary assistant professor at the University of Texas, Austin, and the lead author of the study, said he was not surprised by the findings.
“Most vets are very good at what they do, and they can do it well.
But I think a lot more needs to be done to educate vets about what they can and can’t do,” he added.
