A Q&A with MSM Vets founders

MSM Vets is off to a flying start and we couldn’t be more delighted with the positive response we have had following our launch.

Our founders Rob Hamilton and Ryan Davis have more than 40 years’ combined experience in the veterinary field and we thought you would like to hear their thoughts on the industry and what makes MSM Vets special. Here’s what they had to say:

Q: How do you keep vets in practice?

A: The question has multiple answers but we can answer one of them – provide vets with the job satisfaction and skills to thrive.

Veterinary surgery is an amazing profession and we want to see practices loving it again. Our goal at MSM Vets is to close the continually widening gap between first opinion and referral surgery – something which can ultimately only benefit everyone involved, vets, pets and their owners.

It’s important to understand that you don’t need fancy instruments or diplomas to make a massive difference to your patients. You just need the right mindset, a great team and great communication.

Q: So what is MSM (Mobile Surgical Mentoring) Vets?

A: Whether you are returning to practice, starting out or just wanting to widen your repertoire, we offer bespoke mentorship programmes to cost-effectively increase the operating potential of your practice and save you time.

We come to you, operating in your theatre, and mentor you and your team through the procedures you wish to retain in-house. With time being at such a premium at present, working with less experienced team members takes a back seat. We aim to resolve that situation for you.

Q: Have you got an operating nurse performing procedures to help the vets?

A: Part of the service we provide is to train nurses to be active members of the surgical team, optimising efficiency and providing real career enrichment. Within a few visits, you will be performing these procedures solo, retaining turnover, clients and most importantly empowering your team along the way.

It’s all about getting the best from the resources you have and helping your team members make the most of their talents, which in return brings greater job satisfaction and fulfilment.

Q: What procedures do you perform, teach and mentor on?

A: Our offering includes laparoscopy, including the lap spay technique, endoscopy, endosurgery, ortho soft tissue surgery, nurse surgery, mentoring and surgical efficiency.

Our unique service of visiting a veterinary practice and operating within the premises while mentoring vets through the procedures are carefully designed to dovetail with the working day and commitments of the practice.

We are able to bring along any surgical equipment the practice may not have and being on-site means we are ideally placed to talk through the process before helping you through the procedure itself. It will mean fewer referrals, a greater self-reliance and will provide the opportunity to cut down or eliminate the need to call in mobile surgeons

We can help practices meet their orthopaedic and endosurgical needs and provide a level of training which is second to none – helping a practice attain a greater level of surgical efficiency along the way.
