In today’s episode of That Vet Life Podcast, we are joined by Walnut Lake Animal Hospital and Madison Veterinary Hospital owner, Dr. W. Andrew Rollo.
Dr. Andy’s journey into veterinary medicine began at Michigan State University, where he gained his veterinary doctorate in 2004. Andy then worked as a veterinarian for four years before making the decision to buy two practices.
Andy has been on the Veterinary Economics advisory board for the past several years, as well as being a contributing author to the journal. He also does speaking engagements on veterinary health topics. He specializes in stem cell therapy—an alternative form of treatment for a variety of conditions in animals such as arthritis.
Despite worrying about how much time finally buying a practice would be, two opportunities bubbled up at once, and Andy lept at the opportunities, buying both practices! This is his story of what that looked like as the strange pandemic years shook up plans, squeezed already rough hiring problems, and affected his and his team members’ lives.
