Introvets is a veterinary podcast by introverts with high-functioning anxiety. Co-hosts Lauren, a Veterinarian, and Jennifer, a Licensed Veterinary Technician, have over 40 years of combined experience in the veterinary field. In each episode, we present an anonymous case, work through differentials and testing, reveal the diagnosis, then relate disease and treatment info, along with various sidebars, fun facts, and new research. We talk frankly about our anxiety, going to therapy, and things like that. There is (hopefully) a strong humor element, as well as some philosophizing and opinion sharing. There is also the occasional moderately naughty word, but we try to not use the big guns. It's not really a formal environment - it's more of a veterinary hang, and we'd love to see you there!
