"During our conversation, Dr. Laura shares her advice with other veterinary professionals: “What I wish I knew was the importance of self-care. When I graduated veterinary school and started working in emergency medicine, I know for a fact that every moment of my life went, in some way, toward my profession and I was just missing the importance of what I needed emotionally, mentally, physically, so I think for every veterinarian there is time to restart that. Even if it’s very small changes, even one thing a day, it’s really just so important to make yourself a priority as well.”
