Abstract

Which province has the highest level of veterinary productivity in companion animal practice? Appointment books, client records, and staff schedules were explored to find out which province is the busiest.

The contest was restricted to companion animal practices, because it was felt unfair to challenge veterinary productivity in large animal practices. Most mixed and large animal practices across Canada are operating at below ideal productivity levels because of a drop in demand for food animal services post-bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE). There is preliminary evidence suggesting demand is on the rise, but in 2006 that was certainly not the case.
