What is Veterinary Street Medicine?
In this episode, I have the privilege in speaking with my colleague, Dr. John Geller. We talk about street veterinary care, a growing service that is in much need of help and education. Dr. Jon Geller is an emergency veterinarian and hospital director at the Veterinary Emergency and Rehabilitation Hospital in Fort Collins, Colo. He is board-certified in Canine and Feline Medicine. He is also the co-founder and President of the Board of Directors for two non-profits, The Ladybug Fund and The Street Dog Coalition. In addition, he was active in the field of wildlife animal welfare issues as a committee member for the inaugural Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee for the National Park Service. Dr. Geller is also a Certified Veterinary Journalist (CVJ), and writes regular columns for his regional newspaper and other pet periodicals. His current areas of interest are providing veterinary care to the pets of indigent clients, and investigating feedlot ecology.
