Every day, across New Zealand and Australia, veterinary teams are working hard to keep our animals healthy and happy. It’s more than a job for them — they do it because they love animals and want to make a difference.
So it’s alarming to hear that an increasing number of vets are suffering from burn-out. Pressure from the public is making a demanding job even more stressful. We want to turn that tide. Vets everywhere deserve a shout-out for the amazing work they do.
So let’s hear it for vets!
Share your support message here.
It’s encouraging to know your hard work is appreciated. So take a minute now to post a short message of support to be shared with vets all around New Zealand and Australia. Let’s remind our vets just how much we value them.
Help your vet to help you.
When your pet or stock are unwell, it’s easy to get anxious or stressed. But giving your vet a hard time isn’t the answer. Here’s how you can make life easier for you and your vet:
Value their expertise
Your vet is a highly-trained expert — who only has your pet’s best interests at heart.
Value their services
Vet bills can sometimes seem high, but there’s a lot that goes into providing the best care. Talk to your vet if you’re worried about costs, there are always options. Having pet insurance is ideal.
Being patient and polite helps your veterinary team to care for your pet (and have a great day at work).
