"Not Good Enough"

It’s the mantra of so many veterinary teams. The words that flash through your mind after you are unable to save an animal. And whether the problem was medical, financial, or something else… the message is the same: I’ve failed. And when you carry this weight, the other stressors of working in a veterinary practice can feel unbearable. The bright, impassioned idealism to be the protector and savior of animals turns to ash, and depression begins to take over your life.

You didn't fail. This is not the life we want for you. And there is hope.

self-doubt, criticism, and depression

We see a world for you where you are not constantly weighted down by the cycle of self-doubt, criticism, and depression. We see a world where it isn’t a struggle just to keep going through the motions. We see a world where you can find real joy, peace, and prosperity. Where you can dedicate your life’s work to your true passion, and live the life that deep down you have always known you are capable of. When we tell ourselves a story every day, it begins to feel very real. But please know…

You are never alone. You are good enough. And a better life does await you.

We can’t walk the road for you, but we can carry your backpack.

Healing is possible. It’s why we exist. At our core, NOMV is an online support network of over 26,000 veterinary professionals. We come together to share stories, to cry, to celebrate, to mourn. It’s a place where you can see that you are never alone, and that others understand what you are going through. NOMV is also a 501(C)3 non-profit with a variety of robust programs created to assist veterinary professionals through multiple pathways.

NOMV is the leader in veterinary mental health and will transform the status of mental wellness within the profession so veterinary professionals can survive and thrive through education, resources, and support.

Today we celebrate veterinary technician Laura! Thank you for all you do from all of us at NOMV!Laura, (pictured with her dog Nanook) has been a tech since 1997 and had worked really hard to push the profession further. She was on the organizing committee for the CP canine/feline VTS in 2008 and has recently been pushing for all VTS to be recognized in her hospital. She is now the discharge coordinator at her hospital and has been working to spread education on just how important veterinary after care is to their clients and hopes to be able to have out reach into the community too. She has been working in discharges for 7 years and just recently helped create the discharge coordinator position in hopes that having someone with prior knowledge overseeing discharges, not only by the discharge nurses but by the rest of the hospital, with help improve the after care patients receive. She really loves what she does and has worked hard for me many years even if she wasn't being recognized.#nomv #notonemorevet #vettech #veterinarytechnicianappreciation ... See MoreSee Less
