Practice Management Seminar at the Okayama Veterinary Medical Association

This is the second time I have spoken at a seminar held by the Okayama Veterinary Medical Association, and the last time was in July 2015.
At that time, I talked about various changes in the external and internal environments under the title of “Environmental changes approaching veterinary clinics in Japan.”

This time, I talked about the following six themes after verifying how much the “changes” introduced last time actually had an impact to the veterinary industry.

  1. Polarization of animal hospitals
  2. From the Pharmaceutical Affairs Law to the Pharmaceutical Machinery Law, and further revisions
  3. Cats outnumber dogs, after that
  4. Changes in the environment surrounding veterinary hospitals
  5. The near future of small animal medicine
  6. Okayama Prefecture has Okayama-own Veterinary Medicine

I received many questions. Thank you very much.

New Minister of AFF will be determined on Sep. 30th, 2021.

Prime Minister Suga has decided not to run for the presidential election, so a new prime minister will be elected on September 29th.
Since the Cabinet will be formed by the new Prime Minister, it is expected that the new Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries will be decided on September 30th.
Therefore, companies planning to apply to the MAFF should be aware that the minister’s name must be changed depending on whether the application is filed within September or the application is delayed in October.

Caution! Minister of Agriculture may be changed due to reshuffle of the Cabinet next week

When we file NADA, ANADA, FMA or any other applications, we are required to correctly write the current minister’s name of MAFF (Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries) on the application cover letter.

According to a breaking news today, Mr. Suga, Prime Minister, is planning to reshuffle the cabinet next week. It means that the minister of agriculture may be changed from Mr. Nogami to someone.

We have to pay attention to it because we don’t want to correct our application letter.
In fact, we are planning to file an application and decide to do it within this week.
