The wellbeing of veterinary professionals is one of the most important issues facing our profession. Improving wellbeing is a shared responsibility that requires a committed effort by all members of our community. Practice teams, business owners, veterinary colleges, organizations, and individuals all have important roles to play.
NEW! Mental Health Resources
Podcasts, resources and more! This new website was created by Mars Veterinary Health and contains helpful tools and information for managing one’s emotional and mental health. It’s a great site for veterinary professionals, caregivers in general, or anyone who may be feeling the emotions of the holidays a bit more acutely this year.
