Stress Management For The Veterinary Care Staff

Is all stress bad? Are some of it good? If so, how much of it is bad? Stress can manifest itself in our emotional, mental, or even physical well-being. Stress occurs when there is pressure, whether from work or at home. Sometimes it happens when things go beyond our control. Not all stress is bad, though. It is only bad when it prompts anxiety, panic, anger – or even breakdowns. Stress, when handled well, can be good and push the person to work on things they need to. There are certainly ways to manage stress in a way that is beneficial for you.

The veterinary community shows that 66% of practising veterinarians and 79% of associate veterinarians experience depression, anxiety, fatigue, burnout, alcohol or drug abuse. They also have a high level of stress for emotions like grief when they euthanize or lose a valued pet. Most often veterinarians form connections with the animals they treat, so when they expire veterinarians feel a severe sense of grief. Other stressors, like a dispute with pet owners, extreme workload, or the isolated profession, also cause stress to veterinarians.
