Predicting 25 years is no easy task-long term assessments have variable criteria such as sustainability, strategic relevance, and financial performance. In Veterinary Medicine and Practice 25 Years in the Future and Economic Steps to Get there, Tom Catanzaro and Terry Hall condense facts from recent studies, identify the social and technological long-term trends to watch, and supply an economic roadmap that will help veterinary professionals steer their practices through the next quarter of a century.
