Being an animal care professional is undoubtedly a calling, a way of living and giving back. But sometimes we are so involved in the doing that we forget about how it affects us in the long run. The usual suspects: anxiety at work, burnout, guilt, communication issues, boundaries, stressors, compassion fatigue… This is our community’s safe space for honesty and sharing. Veterinarians, vet techs and vet nurses sure have something to say when it comes to building a better, more balanced and fulfilled version of the vet professional.
