Merck’s latest well-being research, in collaboration with the AVMA, was released on January 18, 2022, and reveals mental health and psychological insights among Veterinarians, Veterinary Technicians, and Support Staff. Conducted in the fall of 2021, the wide-ranging Veterinary Wellbeing Study is the third survey since 2017 and the first since the COVID-19 pandemic began. The study had a goal to examine and bring critical awareness to the challenges impacting the veterinary profession while highlighting the impact that the pandemic has on practitioners and staff. For the first time, the study includes responses from veterinary technicians and support staff and their perspectives on the challenges they are currently facing at work.
