WHAT'S THIS EPISODE ABOUT?
This week on the podcast, Dr. Roark and Stephanie tackle a letter from the mailbag. We received a note from a veterinary technician who is feeling very frustrated with the language that our industry is using to describe ourselves and communicate the pain and frustration we are all experiencing, outwardly to the rest of the world. This technician feels like they see conversations happening where we vet med people say “This is a field meant for broken people” and they disagree. Andy and I are in their camp and want to talk about it, so… Let’s get into this.
This episode contains discussion topics (mental health, suicide crisis) that may be triggering. If you or someone you know are struggling with mental health, there are ways for you to get help. We've attached resources and links below.
