When a client presents a patient, how do you assess the animal’s health? Before touching the cat or dog, you might get a feel for its well-being based on coat quality, general body condition and demeanor. Do you stop there? Of course not. If we instead substitute a veterinary practice for the patient, the owners and managers might assess the hospital’s health based on the quantity of cash in the bank and skip a complete examination. That’s the wrong approach.
