Veterinary Teams and Communication
Veterinary teams can be defined as a group of professionals – including doctors, nurses, technicians and other staff – who work together to provide high quality veterinary care. They also contribute to compassionate interactions with animal owners.
When developing communication skills, it is important to understand your professional roles. It is also critical to understand the needs of your clients. This will help you develop more effective communications with them.
To improve your client-veterinarian relationship, it is important to build trust. A lack of trust can lead to miscommunication and non-adherence to treatments. The best way to develop trust is to develop a rapport and demonstrate a willingness to help.
Veterinary teams can improve communication through the use of a number of tools. Having a positive first consultation with a client is crucial. The client needs to know that they are in a safe place. They need to feel confident in their veterinarian’s professional opinion.

Veterinarians need to be aware of the negative emotional cues that can trigger a client’s distress. They can identify subtle cues by observing facial expressions and body language. They can also listen carefully to their client’s voice.
The veterinarian’s message should be clear and simple. It is also important to be sensitive to the emotional needs of the client when delivering bad news.
There are four key non-verbal cues that should be used in the veterinarian-client relationship. These include a soft tone of voice, a hug, verbal condolences and sympathy cards.
