Help us save lives!

Love Your Pet Love Your Vet     is a registered charity leading the way in increasing wellbeing in the veterinary industry, raising awareness and building community support to highlight and address the disproportionately high rate of suicide within this profession, and providing psychological and educational support to these professionals.

Our charity was founded by one of the world’s foremost authorities on veterinary wellbeing, Psychologist Dr Nadine Hamilton from Positive Psych Solutions. Dr Hamilton spent over six years of doctoral studies researching veterinarian wellbeing and has worked extensively with this profession for over a decade. Her passion and dedication to the veterinary industry has been recognised both domestically and internationally, and she is a sought-after authority within the profession. Dr Hamilton is the author of the best-selling book “Coping With Stress and Burnout as a Veterinarian”, and is regularly invited to speak at veterinary conferences in Australia and overseas.  She is also the winner of the Blackmores Mercie Whellan Women+Wellbeing Award 2020.

Sadly, veterinarians are up to four-times more likely than the general population and twice as likely as other health professionals to suicide. Despite the perception they get to play with cute puppies and kittens all day and earn lots of money, the reality is a far cry from this. There are a considerable number of stressors facing veterinary professionals every day such as euthanising animals, dealing with difficult clients, financial issues, compassion fatigue, and unrealistic expectations – to name a few, and sadly many of these people will suffer in silence and choose suicide as a way of dealing with these issues.

What is needed is a paradigm shift within this industry so our veterinary professionals can do the work they are so passionate about without the negative (and often life-threatening) consequences. Dr Hamilton’s tireless efforts are already having a significant impact on veterinary wellbeing around the world, but yet more needs to be done. Will you help us to help them?

Love Your Pet Love Your Vet      is proud to partner with Royal Canin Australia.
