Compassion-First Pet Hospitals is proud to offer a new podcast series promoting awareness and education about common mental health challenges in the veterinary industry.
In our fourth podcast, Dr. Lund and Sarina discuss grief and bereavement in the veterinary industry. Like many things in life, practicing veterinary medicine isn’t all puppies and kittens. Because of euthanasia and the short life span of the patient, veterinarians and staff experience a stress unknown to other medical practitioners.
This podcast discusses the unique problem veterinary professionals face and how to manage feelings of grief and bereavement. Dr. Lund and Sarina also discuss the difference between grief and bereavement, contributing factors to grief, signs to look for in yourself and in others, and how to address this topic with a co-worker or an employee. The podcast also includes helpful tips and resources (linked below) for managing grief.
