LOS ANGELES – In honor of World Veterinary Day, Airvet will focus on veterinary mental health and show support to the veterinary community by donating to Not One More Vet (NOMV) to help fight suicide and raise awareness this April.
NOMV is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to fighting suicide and transforming the status of mental wellness within the veterinary profession.
According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, suicide is on the rise in the U.S., and one of the top 10 leading causes of death. Additionally, the study found that suicide was even higher in the veterinary profession, with female veterinarians being 3.5 times more likely, and male veterinarians 2.1 times more likely to die from suicide compared to members of the general population.
“Growing up with a veterinarian for a father, I know firsthand just how thankless the job can be sometimes, but I also know that those who become veterinarians are the most selfless and altruistic humans,” said Brandon Werber, CEO of Airvet, the #1-rated telehealth software application for both veterinarians and pet parents in the U.S. and Canada. “At Airvet, we celebrate the veterinarians who we are humbled by and grateful to work with every day, as they deserve to be honored more. With the increasing number of veterinary suicides plaguing our industry, it’s even more crucial to thank your vet next time you see them and tell them how much you appreciate them. That’s why we felt compelled to support Not One More Vet this month, an organization that provides support to practitioners and veterinary students who are struggling or considering suicide. The veterinary industry needs all the support they can get from organizations like them.”
To give back, Airvet has pledged to donate $10 for each veterinary hospital or clinic that receives a demo for their software in the month of April to NOMV. Additionally, for every contract signed between Airvet and a veterinary practice during the month of April, 100 percent of the first month’s subscription fees will be contributed to NOMV.org.
World Veterinary Day is April 24, but Airvet’s offer is good throughout the entire month of April.
