please be kind to your vet

Karen's caution against distrusting our veterinarians in another thread reminded me that I wanted to post a link to this article about how the suicide rate among veterinarians is significantly higher than the rate among members of the general public. When DH brought this article to my attention, it made me so sad . . .

That is really sad. I never thought about what they must go through. I thought they were compartmentalizing very well. Thank you for the article. It is always good to learn what somebody else is going through.

I imagine it is stressful. Not working in a vet clinic myself, I would hope that the vet techs and employees can support each other.
