It doesn't sound like the question...why veterinarians?...was addressed. Which is interesting. Perhaps they live in a subculture that ma have numerous features that would not emerge in a study focused on identifying straight forward causes.

I think the focus was on their access to lethal chemicals. It's hard to say whether this is a new development or something that has been going on for a while.

Interesting article. I knew some good (http://www.EAC-AZ.com) emergency veterinarians, then they retired. I don't think they were at risk for suicide though. But that could have been just them, and not the job itself. People in Gilbert can be very resistant sometimes.


Wow, I'm not sure what to say about this article. I never would have guessed these were possibilities. I had actually earlier been researching emergency veterinarians Gilbert. I have a pup that inst' doing well and I want to find an emergency vet that I can have on call for the little guy. Like I said this article totally took me by surprise it was a good read though.

I just hope that my main (http://lonepeakvet.com) veterinarian over in Salt Lake City won't contribute to whatever statistics that say these people are at risk for suicide. He's been good to my animals, and I want him to stay around.

I actually never thought about it like this. I thought that was more of an issue for dentists. It's amazing how a career can affect you like that.

My veterinarian ajax mentioned this to me last week and it came as quite a shock to me because of the high levels of intelligence and cognition generally associated with vets. It would be great to see some studies done on this subject.

No I think your thinking of Dentists. But vet edmonton normally are happy with their lives.
