Here’s a recent interview I did for NPR on the SkeptVet Blog and the need for skeptical, evidence-based medicine for our animal companions.
Why does the world need skeptical veterinarians?
Pet owners need to know the pros and cons of health care options for their pets to make good decisions. “Skeptic” doesn’t mean someone who automatically rejects new or unfamiliar ideas. It’s someone who refrains from judging a claim until they have examined the evidence dispassionately — someone who gives preference to scientific evidence over personal experience, anecdote, tradition or history.
