Support And Empower Veterinary Education
Foster The Next Generation
The global shortage of veterinarians poses a critical challenge due to increasing demands for animal care. Veterinary colleges around the globe struggle to meet the escalating need for graduates, exacerbating the scarcity. This shortage significantly impacts specialized veterinary fields like internal medicine or surgery, leading to gaps in specialized care. Nowhere is this more prevalent than in equine medicine. It restricts access to crucial expertise, prolongs waiting times for appointments, and burdens existing veterinarians with overwhelming caseloads.
Addressing this crisis requires collaborative efforts among educational institutions, policymakers, and the veterinary industry to incentivize training, bolster resources, and support professionals entering specialized fields, ensuring adequate care for all animals.
We Are Ahead Of That Charge. Each Year Rutledge Medical Donates Equipment, Time, Repair, Parts and Consumables To CE and Charity Organizations Throughout Vet Med.
