Caring for animals can be an incredibly rewarding experience. Who wouldn’t enjoy seeing lots of playful puppies and kittens, fluffy rabbits, and energetic guinea pigs? Unfortunately, caring for family pets sometimes carries heavy emotional burdens. Imagine a day with three euthanasias or being unable to save a pet experiencing a medical emergency.
Not One More Vet was founded to provide mental health resources and support to professionals in the veterinary industry struggling with the emotional burdens of their jobs. Darlene Bos, Executive Director of NOMV, joins the podcast today to discuss her group’s work, why it is important and how pet parents can support the organization’s efforts.
