Before you leave the farm, you consider your relationship with this farmer.  Your role here is most definitely that of “problem solver” and you have been made acutely aware of the situation at hand.  However, you know that there are times when the veterinarian is not as in touch as he or she should be, and in these situations the farmer is making disease and treatment decisions that the farmer should not be making.  You know that a valid VCPR is key to proper diagnosis and responsible treatment of disease.  You run through the tenets of a valid VCPR.

For additional information on the veterinarian/client/patient relationship, please see “Additional Resources” at the end of this module.
