You spent years studying to become a veterinarian, pouring over books and information, learning technique and procedures. When you officially became a practicing veterinarian, answering to "Doctor,” you spent hours treating ailing animals. You checked that well animals were still well. You may have even been the one a client turned to at the end of their pet’s life.
In return you get the satisfaction of saving a pet, the joy from a client spilling over to you. Maybe you feel the fatigue of working long hours or the stress of a particularly long and trying day. Chances are those are the days you remember most – a lost pet, or perhaps a client’s wrath.
But for all the hard work you do, you deserve thanks. Thanks for treating a client’s pet – whether or not it survived. Thanks for support in difficult situations. Thanks for doing your job and doing it well.
In this video, several horse owners do just that: give a much-deserved thanks to their equine veterinarians.
