The trusted provider of veterinary information since 1955
A new study funded by MSD Animal Health surveyed the mental health and well being of veterinarians in the US and compared the findings with those of a long-running national survey of the general population. While there are substantial numbers of veterinarians reporting severe psychological distress, the prevalence is similar to that in the population as a whole.
More details on the study of veterinary well being and mental health can be found at AVMA.
More information on self-care for veterinarians is available in the MSD Veterinary Manual.
