Recently, I recorded a PodCast with Kris McCauley from Pawawareness on the mental health crisis in veterinary medicine. Instead of a blog post this Monday, I decided to share this PodCast with all of you. In this episode, I discuss the intricacies of being a veterinarian, as well as tips for coping with stress and anxiety. I also share how I started the Traveling Dogtor blog and how it evolved to where it is now.
The advice provided in this episode applies not only to vet students and professionals in the healthcare industry but to anyone experiencing hardship.
“Find good mentors. Find someone who loves being a vet. If it’s your passion, you don’t want to be discouraged from that. Maintain and foster relationships with your mentors. At the end of the day, no matter where you go, you’re gonna need a recommendation for a job. Connections are important.” – Dr. Shelby Baden
