Group debriefing sessions

Our group debriefing sessions are a great way to get your veterinary team together for a 60 minute debrief and chat with our CEO and Psychologist, Dr Nadine Hamilton.  

If your team has been through a tough time, or if you'd like to keep on top of your wellbeing, why not schedule a debriefing session for your team.

Sessions are available for a $150.00 donation to Love Your Pet Love Your Vet.  (And don't forget - because we are a charity donations to us over $2.00 are tax deductible within Australia.)

Cards and gifts

Introducing our gorgeous new mascots!  They are all handmade by Anita's Kreativ Crochet and profits will be generously donated to Love Your Pet Love Your Vet 🤗. There are many more animals to choose from and they can be made to order. Prices start at only $20 and are available in Australia only (unless you are happy to pay international postage). We’d love to see these in as many clinics as possible and believe they are a great talking point and will get some discussions happening about LYPLYV and veterinary wellbeing. If you would like more information about getting a handmade mascot (or two!) for your clinic or as a gift for someone special, please contact us and we will put you in touch with Anita.
