About Us

​Love Your Pet Love Your Vet was founded by Psychologist Dr Nadine Hamilton, who spent over six years researching veterinarian wellbeing at doctoral level.  Her research investigated why the rate of suicide in this profession is so high (roughly four-times the national average), as well as developing an evidence-based psycho-educational intervention program (which resulted in reductions in anxiety, stress, and depression in veterinarian participants).  Dr Hamilton has since published her book "Coping with Stress and Burnout as a Veterinarian" and also commenced new doctoral research (PhD) to extend her research into veterinary wellbeing.  She works exclusively with the veterinary profession.

 

Why do we do it?

Sadly, Dr Hamilton has been affected by suicide within her own family, which is why she is so passionate about suicide prevention.  She also has a love of animals, and is proud to be a supporter and advocate for those who look after our animals - the veterinary professionals. 

Not being satisfied with the status-quo, and also realising that as a psychologist she was in a position to address this serious issue, Dr Hamilton set about creating a 'paradigm shift' within the veterinary industry - which lead to her partnering with Royal Canin to raise awareness of veterinary wellbeing, reduce stigma in veterinary professionals seeking help, as well as providing support - hence our initial campaign, which has already surpassed any expectations we have had, and has reached countries and people all around the world.  Our campaign videos have been watched over half-a-million times already!
