Suicide in veterinary medicine is a huge problem right now
“I am a veterinarian. More specifically, I am a veterinary specialist, board-certified in emergency and critical care. I don’t play with puppies and kittens. I treat the worst of the worst in a specialty hospital setting with a state-of-the-art ER and ICU. Despite years of education, including veterinary school, internship, fellowship, and residency to obtain this education and specialty board certification, I was not prepared for the emotional toll of becoming a veterinarian.”
Garret Pachtinger is a veterinarian.
He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, “Suicide in veterinary medicine is a huge problem right now.” (https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2020/10/suicide-in-veterinary-medicine-is-a-huge-problem-right-now.html)
