I'm honored to create this short for Not One More Vet, Inc. The rate of suicide in the veterinary profession has been pegged as close to twice that of the dental profession, more than twice that of the medical profession, and four times the rate in the general population. NOMV provides the necessary support to all members of veterinary teams and students who are struggling or considering suicide.
There are no words for how proud I am of my sister, Alexandra Reist, DVM. I can only understand a small part of the amount of stress and responsibility she takes on each day in this profession, especially as a surgeon. I'll stand by her side, along with all of her colleagues, forever.
