THE scenic 1940s country practice described by James Herriot fulfilled the basic needs of the client. Friendly reassurance, good humour and simple solutions to every animal problem were all that was required. The vet was respected as a professional, and the art of veterinary practice was central to its success. In the 1990s, a variety of diagnostic imaging and surgical solutions (the science of practice) exists for the treatment of most conditions. However, it is still important not to neglect the art of practice.
