'Critical shortage' of vets - NZ Veterinary Association

From The Panel, 4:22 pm on 11 September 2020

There is a "critical shortage" of veterinarians in New Zealand, warns the Veterinary Association.

The Panel speaks to chief executive Kevin Bryant about the challenges of recruiting more vets in the time of Covid-19.

The Association says the issue isn't "sexy" enough for the government to take notice but says vets are essential to the economy.
