This snarky title hints at the rant/soap-box Dr. McFaddin explores in this podcast. We discuss the misconceptions MDs have toward DVMs (or VMDs), as well as peek into the overwhelming stresses veterinarians face in their daily work lives. September is Suicide Prevention Month. Veterinarians unfortunately have a higher suicide risk compared to the national average. Dr. McFaddin encourages all working in this field to read the following Time's article (https://time.com/5670965/veterinarian-suicide-help/) and listen to this piece on NPR (https://www.npr.org/2019/09/07/757822004/veterinarians-are-killing-themselves-an-online-group-is-there-to-listen-and-help). For more information on how you can receive support or help support others struggling in this field we recommend you look into these amazing organizations: Not One More Vet (https://www.nomv.org/), 1 Life Connected (http://1lifecc.com/), the AVMA Wellbeing Initiative (https://www.avma.org/professionaldevelopment/peerandwellness/pages/default.aspx?utm_source=prettyurl&utm_medium=print&utm_campaign=mktg&utm_term=wellness), and AAHA Healthy Workplace Culture Initiative (https://www.aaha.org/practice-resources/running-your-practice/healthy-workplace-culture/).
