NOT ONE MORE VET:
FOLLOW DR. CODY'S
JOURNEY OF COMPASSION
Suicide rates are now considered epidemic in the veterinary profession, as nearly 400 veterinarians have died by suicide since 1979.
- Unlike people doctors, vets often find themselves having to euthanize patients with a treatable injury or illness because the pet’s owner can’t afford treatment.
- Veterinarians are frequently asked to perform services or give away medications for free. In fact, 1 in 5 vets have been cyberbullied, subject to nasty reviews online, or had their business threatened by a client—many times because they can’t give away services or medication.
- Veterinary students in the U.S. graduate with an average of $150,000 in student loan debt. While entry level veterinarian salaries vary by state, they are typically under $50,000 a year.
Not One More Vet (NOMV) is an online support community for veterinarians dealing with the pressures of their work. Like Keota Veterinary Clinic, it stands for compassion and helping others in our community and the veterinary community at large.
Dr. Cody is passionate about both his profession and running; he has started a fundraiser by donating $1 for every mile he runs to support the critical work done by NOMV. We hope you will follow his journey on his Facebook page where you'll be able to access and donate to his GoFundMe page if you would like to; all proceeds go directly to NOMV.
