One of my goals with this blog is to share examples of exam room conversation. Afterall, reading and understanding (in theory) various medical problems and solutions doesn’t necessarily mean it’s easy to communicate said knowledge to a pet owner. Once again, I emphatically pronounce my disclaimer that, just because I say it doesn’t mean it’s so, and I by no means think I have done the best job possible in presenting information to the client in the following video. Like I’ve said before, this blog is an experiment, and one of my goals is not only to show a “fly-on-the-wall” perspective of this conversation, but I also hope to gain feedback in how I can improve my presentation.
That said, and with a big swallowing gulp of my pride, here’s my “Say Please by Sitting” dicussion:
Note: I should probably include some discussion on why the “Say Please by Sitting” protocol (also known as “Nothing in Life is Free”) is so useful and helpful, but perhaps that’s for another time. Or if you know of a great resource, post it in the comments section below. I really love Dr. Sophia Yin’s website and information, but she’s recently revamped her website and I can’t find any singular discussion on this exact topic.)
