Having a good office staff helps many vets deal with upset clients. Dealing with abused animals (or children) is emotionally taxing. Another difficult one is when someone deliberately chooses to keep a vicious animal (one form of animal abuse is deliberately creating a vicious animal) and then that animal seriously injures someone or another animal. Vets sometimes end up involved in those cases too.
The good news is that you can pick up the phone and report that stuff, which is one way of dealing with it appropriately.
Nice job on the metacognition, btw
I agree. I know I will probably get involved. Thank you!
