The culture in veterinary medicine as a whole is in great need of improvement. The dialogue around this often includes blame and abdication of responsibility for this culture to people and organizations other than ourselves. We are the victims. But are we? In this episode I explore how we have unintentionally created a culture of resentment and fea…
 
In this episode I share about the compounding effect of stress and the opportunities for self discovery and emotional wellbeing we can discover when we are curious about our stressful experiences. I also share tips on managing stress as veterinary professionals and explore the intimate relationship between feeling stress and experiencing fear. FEAT…
 
In this episode I chat with Dr. Cindy Trice from Relief Rover. We cover it all... from the increase in demand for relief veterinarians and relief veterinary technicians / veterinary nurses and what happened to this veterinary niche at the peak of the pandemic; the characteristics of veterinary professionals that make them best suited to be veterina…
 
Opinions in veterinary medicine are strong. In this episode I explore where our opinions regarding our veterinary careers come from, and how unknowingly adopting the opinions of our colleagues is having a huge impact on the state of wellbeing for veterinarians, veterinary technicians and entire veterinary teams.…

In this episode, host Dr. Cari Wise shared exactly what happened that halted production, and valuable lessons she learned about slowing down, and letting go, along the way.

Every action we take has a consequence. Some of them are positive. Others are negative. But, do you realize that your mind is conditioned to seek out the negative consequences? Are you aware that creating intentional consequences is the key to getting the clients you want and doing the practice you dream of in your Vet Med career? In this episode, …
 
Client interactions are one of the greatest stressors in veterinary medicine. Unpleasant encounters stay with us, often looping in our minds for hours or even days… The most disrespectful and aggressive clients are often repeated offenders. When we see them on the schedule, our hearts sink, and dread sets in. The impact of these clients on our mood…
 
Vet Med can’t make you happy. It can’t make you unhappy either. It does, however, enhance your awareness of your personal level of happiness. Success and failure in veterinary medicine are intangible concepts. They can’t be measured. They are elusive and unattainable. Yet, our personal belief in our own success or failure in veterinary jobs contrib…
 
Veterinary Career Alignment Score MCMF. Misaligned Choice, Misaligned Fit. Most veterinary professionals who take the Vet Med Career Alignment Scores Quiz anticipate receiving a score of MCMF Alignment because they are burned out, frustrated or unhappy. Turns out, this is the least common score received on the Vet Med Career Alignment Score quiz! A…
 
Veterinary Career Alignment Score ACMF. Aligned Choice, Misaligned Fit. ACMF Alignment is the most common score on the Vet Med Career Alignment Score quiz. An individual with ACMF alignment made an intentional, focused choice to pursue a career in veterinary medicine but the type of work they are doing currently is not a good fit. Their awareness o…
 
Veterinary Career Alignment Score ACAF. Aligned Choice, Aligned Fit. An individual with ACAF alignment made an intentional, focused choice to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. The type of work they currently do is also a good fit. But... They are likely restless. ACAF Aligned people are often surprised by their results because they often take…
 
Veterinarians, Veterinary Technicians, and all members of the veterinary healthcare team often grapple with the question "Am I cut out for a career in Vet Med" at some point in their careers. The complex experience of being a veterinary professional, along with the negative emotional impact that often accompanies it, has many concluding they are no…
 
Nobody likes a bully. In Vet Med bullies exist everywhere... Clients Leadership Co-workers Unfortunately, the high-pressure, high-stakes field of veterinary medicine can catalyze bullying behavior... but that doesn't mean it's acceptable or should be tolerated. This behavior greatly contributes to degrading veterinary culture and employee morale. T…
 
Are you feeling stuck? Does it seem like your veterinary career, your relationships, and your life are not moving forward? Have you begun to doubt that any of it will ever be different or better than it is right now? Many of us doubt... We recognize we are unhappy or discontent... We try to make sense of it... We try to figure out how we became stu…
 
What’s possible for you regarding your career? What’s possible for you regarding your relationships? What’s possible for you regarding your finances? What’s possible for you regarding your future? Your answers to the questions above... that’s your filter. Your filter holds your potential. A filter that is clogged up with emotional and mental garbag…
 
Your individual energetic frequency creates your experience. It also influences the experience of others. Toxic Culture makes so much more sense when we understand the energy dynamic of what's happening. As we begin to understand the Veterinary Energetics, we can also identify the opportunities to create massive, positive, permanent shifts that rap…
 
I hadn't planned on sharing this story. Other than my husband, nobody knew this had even occurred... Until I shared it on Facebook... And turned it into a Podcast Episode... Now everyone will know. (Okay, okay... that's dramatic...) So why share it? Because I felt led to tell you what happened, and what I learned from it... Because there are lesson…
 
I don't know what to do. How many times have you said that to yourself, or even shared it out loud? On its own, it seems innocent enough... But... Often it is accompanied by a parallel belief, " I SHOULD know what to do..." with the "shoulds" come judgment... with the "shoulds" come shame... with the "shoulds" come unrealistic expectations... (expe…
 
Joy and Happiness are NOT the same things. Joy is more than an emotion... It is a way of being... It is most highly experienced when we develop truth for ourselves in nine key areas... the nine buckets of alignment as I like to call them. Our human experience, left unquestioned and absent of intention, cannot (and will not) fill these nine buckets.…
 
Our experience in veterinary medicine is determined by our thoughts about it. Habit thoughts... Thoughts we’ve been imprinted with from those around us (parents, teachers, colleagues, clients, media, etc.)... Thoughts we haven’t intentionally chosen for ourselves... So WHY? Why are some of us greatly influenced by others, and some of us are not? Wh…
 
The Covid-19 pandemic has been with us for a year now and will continue to linger for the indefinite future in some way, shape, or form. Veterinary Medicine, like many industries, has been forced to adjust and adapt. A year in, our colleagues in clinical practice are exhausted. Like much of the rest of the world, we’re dreaming of getting back to n…
 
I don't care whether or not you stay in veterinary practice, or totally leave every potential job related to a veterinary license behind. I really don't. I care about your personal well-being. I care about your future happiness. I care about your purpose (I KNOW you have one, even if you aren't so sure). I also care about the decision many of us ke…
 
What do you hate about Vet Med? I'm guessing creating that list would come pretty easily. I suspect justifying that list with your personal experiences would be effortless. I bet you could even round up a group of colleagues who would agree with you... ... who would share their similar experiences... ... who would create their own, very similar, li…
 
The most common response to discomfort is to take action that results in a change. Makes sense from a survival perspective... (especially if you are being pursued by predators.) BUT... this "habit of leaving" isn't doing us any favors in the pursuit of our best lives. Sure, there will be jobs, relationships, and other circumstances in our lives tha…
 
As a veterinary professional you are likely a very smart person. After all, it wasn't by accident that you were able to pass those board examinations to secure your licensure... But something happens to many of us once we get into practice... The real-world becomes overwhelming and confusing. Our logical and strategic left-brained thinking tries to…
 
What if you were never meant to work in Vet Med forever? What if the clinical practice was only supposed to be a tiny part of your journey? What if you were never supposed to "fit in" there? If these things are true, then did you make a mistake pursuing it in the first place? Many of us would believe Yes. Some of our friends, family members, and co…
 
You and I have at least one thing in common... We both pursued careers in Vet Med. Beyond that, there are similarities, and there are differences. Society and culture would have us believe our differences are problematic. This idea is so integrated that it leaves us comparing ourselves to others... Not measuring up... Concluding that the others hav…
 
"I just can't do this anymore." Most of us in the veterinary profession have said those words... at least to ourselves. Maybe the last time was after a particularly sad euthanasia. Or, maybe after an ugly encounter with a client. Or, perhaps, when leaving work hours after the scheduled end of your shift. There comes a point for all of us when we ar…
 
Veterinary medicine brings us the opportunity to feel all the feels. You might struggle with that part. I did. I still do, sometimes. If you're anything like me, you probably have a tendency toward perfectionism. Perhaps you beat yourself up from time to time. And, maybe, you use things like junk food, television, shopping, and even overworking to …
 
Our world is full of never-ending opportunities to be stimulated. Veterinary jobs reinforce this with overbooked schedules and chaotic days. The unpredictable nature of practicing medicine doesn't help. Many of us get through our days with a combination of adrenaline and caffeine. We then collapse in physical exhaustion when we get home... but the …
 
Are you experiencing the compounding effect of anxiety and stress? Does it seem like it's getting heavier than usual? You aren't alone! If you're like me, your mind drifts frequently to the "what if..." And, let's face it... with the pandemic, election-related activities, and our own personal and professional challenges... we have a lot of material…
 
We often experience an emotional rollercoaster in veterinary medicine. There are extreme moments of happiness, relief, and appreciation... And there are also extreme moments of grief, regret, and fear. However, the framework of our veterinary careers, and entire lives, actually creates no emotion for us at all. Life has two components: Framework Ex…
 
There are Four Root Causes of all Anxiety in Vet Med: Unexpected Outcomes Personal Inexperience Human Interactions Prior Decisions These causes have two things in common: None of them are within our control. All of them are anchored in Fear. Because they are anchored in fear, they feel extra terrible. They feel like something we need to fix, solve …
 
The new year is coming. So, where do you land? In the camp of excited anticipation? Or in the camp of dread, doubt, uneasiness, and a little bit of fear? No doubt, 2020 threw us a hefty dose of the unexpected... But... ...not really more than any other year. Read that again... Not really more than any other year. What we can predict has remained un…
 
The decisions we make exclusively from our emotional experience often do not create the results we ultimately want. We make decisions this way because we want to feel better. And when we make these decisions rashly. It's simply evidenced that we want to feel better immediately. It works... for a while. When we change our circumstances we automatica…
 
Thinking about quitting Vet Med? You aren’t alone. Thoughts of leaving this sh*twshow behind are pretty common for a lot of us. Ya, Really! But, why? Here’s where it gets interesting... Why are you thinking about leaving your job? Why are you thinking about ditching the profession altogether? My guess: the VMVs... Blame directed at the Vet Med Vill…
 
We put a lot of pressure on happiness. We've turned it into the measure of the quality of our life and career. Of course, we want to be happy! But in pursuit of that, we've turned the absence of happiness into something that it is not. Absence of happiness does not mean something is going wrong. Absence of happiness does not mean something needs to…
 
Some of the hardest components of a veterinary career are amplified by four things: Stressful Client Interactions Unexpected Patient Death Board Complaints / Negative Performance Evaluations Negative Online Business Reviews We try our best to avoid these things... ... to keep them from happening. And then when they do, we turn inward... > we blame …
 
In veterinary medicine and life, happiness is never something to be found, it is only something to be created. Happiness is an emotion. Emotions are never created by the events of the world. This faulty conclusion we've drawn about the things that happen to be the cause of the way we feel is defeating. When we believe our happiness (and other emoti…
 
In an uncontrollable world, there is one thing you can control one hundred percent of the time... You. Unfortunately, many of us give away that control, which compounds the impact. The ways in which we give up our control are subtle. We don't recognize these three simple things have a massive negative impact on our lives, self-confidence, and our f…
 
The Vet Med journey is not predictable. Despite the shared experiences of those who’ve gone before, the journeys of others are not indicative of our own. We will forge our own paths. Left to chance, those paths look very similar. But, intentionally decided, they look very different. Vet Med is simply a catalyst. The ultimate question becomes this: …

Veterinary Work-Life Balance is an interesting thing. In Vet Med we often lament about not having it ... and we identify it as a must-have when searching for new jobs. Many of us believe the perfect job can make work-life balance a reality for us. So, we actively seek work-life balance, as if it is something to be found... as if it's, something we'…
 
The veterinary environment can be rough. Mentally. Physically. Emotionally. We often blame the clients, and their behavior, for our experience. But, it doesn't start there. It starts closer to home. Many of us experience work environments where gossiping and back-stabbing are the norm... ... where "us against them" is common... ... where nobody see…
 
Remember the Bluebirds I talked about back in Episode 11? They taught me a great lesson, which I shared on the podcast, about how to overcome obstacles. (If you haven't listened to Episode 11, consider checking it out.) Turns out, they had more wisdom to share. Perseverance: The ability to keep doing something despite how hard it is and how long it…
 
Uncertainty creates fear. Veterinary Medicine is full of uncertainty. It's no wonder many of us feel stressed, anxious, and worried a lot of the time. Under all of those emotions is fear. We've tried our best to eliminate the uncertainty. We've become control freaks & perfectionists. (okay, okay... so maybe those aren't new traits... but they are m…
 
Fear is a powerful motivator. It makes perfect since when we remember the original purpose of this emotion... Self Preservation. Fear is part of our built-in alert system. Super useful when our ancestors were being hunted by predators, not so much today. The alert system still exists... and it’s really good at sending off false alarms. Fear is so i…
 
Feeling angry with your veterinary clients because they just don't get it? Tired of the complaining about scheduling appointments, curbside service, and the inability to get in same-day? Wishing they'd just chill out and understand what you're going through? You aren't alone. But it's not just veterinary clinics experiencing this Extra from clients…
