Thursday 9pm BBC1 Panorama, It Shouldn't Happen at the Vets.
Although no one has actually seen the programme yet there's much fear and anticipation in the vet world. Click here for the BVA advice to vets on how to cope with the public reaction to the programme. I'm intrigued as to what the vet-only restricted advice is having read the public section! And click here to see what the Medivet chain are saying... it seems they are very upset and they have clips and letters from some of their customers that were approached. Seems like Panorama had a vet nurse on the inside filming.
NEW RCVS have also posted some information in the build up. Click here for their link. THey say... "We have not seen the programme, but understand it is set to cover a range of issues, including the role of unqualified nursing staff in the practice, support for new graduates, over-charging in relation to insurance and regulation of corporate practices."
One to watch by the sounds of things.
Here's the blurb from the BBC... Filming undercover in one of Britain's largest veterinary chains, Panorama reveals evidence of questionable bills, animals poorly treated, and an unrepentant vet struck off for dishonesty.
Pet owners who take best practice on trust are in for a shock.
