Happy Vet Happy Pet
If you have a pet, then you have a vet.
And if you know a veterinarian, you know someone statistically at very high risk for suicide.
And you - yes you! - have the power to save their life.
Will you?I Need This Book!
This book will change your relationship with your veterinarian and their team forever.
You’ll learn why veterinarians carry so much stress, how you can help alleviate that stress, and exactly what to do if you’re ever in the presence of someone who is suicidal.
You can save a life, and this book will show you how.
Because what you don’t know is your veterinarian is nearly four times more likely to complete suicide than the general population.
Dr. Jerry Klein, Chief Veterinary Officer, American Kennel Club
"I am grateful that after many years, recognition of the psychological needs and turmoil of my noble profession are being addressed."
Dr. Gary Modrcin, co-founder, Blue Pearl Veterinary Partners
"This book will give you insights into the complicated stressors veterinarians manage on a daily basis. For most clients, their veterinarian is a part of the family."
You, without knowing it and without meaning to, may be stressing out your veterinarian. And veterinarians in small-animal practices - that's vets who care for our pets - may not be handling that stress very well. In this book you'll learn just who your vet is, what stresses him or her out, the role you play and three easy rules to follow to stop adding to their stressful days
If your vet isn't happy they can't provide the best care to their patients - your pet included. If you're like me, you value your veterinarian and rely on them to keep your pet healthy and happy. Your veterinarian needs to be able to rely on you, too. Because here's the scary truth - veterinarians are nearly four - 4!! - times more likely to complete suicide than the general population.
Susan Conant's Amazon review:
If you've had dogs and cats for as long as I have, you've probably known a veterinarian who completed suicide. I've known two. If you haven't experienced such loss, you probably will—but not if Sandy Weaver can help it. She has made it her mission not only to prevent suicide but also to improve the relationship between veterinarians and those whose animals are in their care. In spite of the serious subject matter, this is a remarkably positive, sometimes even cheerful, book. Highly recommended.
From the Midwest Book Review Small Press Bookwatch, March 2021:
"Critique: Exceptionally well written, organized and presented, "Happy Vet Happy Pet: Caring for your Pet's Caregiver" is a unique and very special addition to family, community, college and university library Suicide Prevention and Veterinarian Medicine collections. It should be noted for the personal reading lists of pet owners, veterinarians, mental health practitioners, students, academia, and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the subject that "Happy Vet Happy Pet: Caring for your Pet's Caregiver" covers. It is also readily available in a digital book format."
LTimbrook's Amazon review:
I am so glad I read this. I always thought of our vets as having the greatest jobs I mean don't they play with dogs all day. This book was eye opening and definitely making me think differently on how I interact with them.
I'm recommending this to anyone with a pet.
