You must give yourself the same compassion and kindness you so readily give to others.
Anyone in a caregiving position can be vulnerable to compassion fatigue. That said, our work is geared specifically towards veterinary professionals. Even the best in the field can find themselves struggling when their lives go out of balance.
The irony is that this same quality is what allows such caring individuals to be highly effective veterinary team members to begin with (the ability to empathize and have compassion for those who suffer). Through our guidance you will be able to find yourself again.
