New Insights into Veterinarian Wellbeing and How to Improve It

A comprehensive new study of US veterinarians documents the state of wellbeing and mental health in the profession. It also provides new data on burnout, substance use, job satisfaction and suicide attempts. The Merck Animal Health Veterinarian Wellbeing Study is a follow up to a similar study conducted two years earlier. Conducted in collaboration with the American Veterinary Medical Association and Brakke Consulting, the new research is based on a representative sample of 2,871 veterinarians, both practitioners and non-practitioners.

Equine Emergency: The Horse with Colic

“Colic” is a term applied to many anatomical and physiological origins of abdominal pain in horses. Because of the wide spectrum of symptoms and potential outcomes, emergency management of a horse with colic can be intimidating. However, a sound physical examination and reasoned decision making can greatly assist early diagnosis and treatment, which is key to a successful outcome. Coordination and collaboration with equine veterinary colleagues and potential referral centers can make the team approach work smoothly for the benefit of horse and owner.
