Every once in a while I come across veterinarians who are approaching veterinary medicine with a different enough slant that makes me want to follow them and their career. One of these is Dr. Johnny Slaughter of Baltimore Maryland. Dr. Slaughter ‘s veterinary business is focused on geriatric clients and their pets. He has a mobile practice, works alone and, most importantly, he is someone who loves being a veterinarian. If I thought Johnny was an interesting veterinarian before chatting with him I now think he is one of the most fascinating people I have ever met. His various careers have led him to a professional place where he is gone from a graduate veterinarian, to a researcher, to a stockbroker, to a senior executive at Morgan Stanley and finally back to where he started, as a veterinarian. If that is not enough he now embarking on a plan to host rabies clinics in the Western part of Africa beginning in the fall of 2013.
I know you will enjoy our discussion. Of note is how he analyzes the world about him to identify population trends and how they will impact veterinarian medicine. I was surprised by the areas of vet med where Johnny finds opportunity.
After listening to our chat I know many of you will want to contact Johnny and enquire about his trip . Here is his contact info.
