In any service profession. terminating a relationship with an existing client Is one of the most uncomfortable tasks a practitioner has to undertake, “Firing a client” is not only personally unpleasant. but it
is often at cross-purposes with the economic interests of the practitioner. Whether the profession at issue is veterinary medicine. the practice of law. or mowing lawns. it is hard to “fire” someone who is paying you money And, even when the client’s dereliction involves a persistent failure to pay the interpersonal dynamics attendant to firing a client can be nettlesome. Adding to the difficulty is the fact that. for California veterinarians, there 1s no clear legal roadmap governing how a client relationship should be terminated.
