In this episode, I'm joined by Dr. Siva Nalabotu and Jeff Lafave of VetCheck Pet Urgent Care which is a unique veterinary care model that started in Fishers, IN and is now starting a franchise offering nationwide. Dr. Nalabotu is a veterinarian, has his master's in biological sciences with a focus on nanotechnology, and has a Ph.D. in toxicology.
