    Increasing Awareness and Lending Support for Suicide in the Veterinary Community with Dr. Carrie Jurney From Not One More Vet

    Increasing Awareness and Lending Support for Suicide in the Veterinary Community with Dr. Carrie Jurney From Not One More Vet

    Today on the show we’re going to be talking about a difficult but important topic: the high frequency of suicide in the veterinary profession. 
     
    This might come as a bit of a surprise to you if you’re not in the veterinary field, so I wanted to make this episode to increase awareness and talk a little bit about what's being done in the community to support vets and vet staff, talk about why this is happening, and give you some resources that might be helpful. 
     
    To help us navigate this topic, we are joined by Dr. Carrie Jurney. 
     
    Dr. Jurney is a board-certified veterinary neurologist and owner of Jurney Veterinary Neurology, providing neurology services to the San Francisco Bay Area. She is also the current president of NOMV (Not One More Vet), a 501c3 organization that provides financial and professional mental health support to veterinarians and veterinary staff in need.
     
    Dr. Jurney cares so much about this topic, as you’ll hear in the episode, so I knew she would be the perfect person to help us understand what’s going on. 
     
    If you need to know that you’re not alone, or you want to help someone else feel less alone, please join us for this episode.

    All About Canine Diabetes with Veterinary Internist Dr. Ayeley Okine

    All About Canine Diabetes with Veterinary Internist Dr. Ayeley Okine

    What does diabetes look like in dogs? How does it compare to humans? 
     
    These are some of the questions that we are going to address today as we talk all about diabetes in dogs with Dr. Ayeley Okine. 
     
    We’ll be covering what a diabetic dog looks like, what canine diabetes is, what predisposing risk factors are, how we make a diagnosis, how we monitor to make sure treatment is working, what treatment looks like, and what the prognosis is. 
     
    Diabetes takes up about 25% of Dr. Okine’s caseload, so it's pretty common and definitely important to talk about. 
     
    Dr. Ayeley Okine is a board-certified veterinary internist. She is a graduate of Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, she practices at Sage Veterinary Centers in the San Francisco Bay Area, and she has a strong professional interest in immune-mediated blood disease and gastrointestinal disease. 
     
    Join us to find out what to do if your dog gets a diabetes diagnosis!

    How to Deal with End of Life Decision-Making and Grief Following Loss with Veterinarian and Social Worker Dr. Katherine Goldberg

    How to Deal with End of Life Decision-Making and Grief Following Loss with Veterinarian and Social Worker Dr. Katherine Goldberg

    Do you worry about how to handle the emotional challenges that come with losing a pet? 
     
    Today we have Dr. Katherine Goldberg back for a second episode, and you are in good hands when it comes to discussing these issues. 
     
    We’re covering some heavy topics today but ones that I think are really important to talk through. These are things like end-of-life decision making, preparing for the loss of a pet, how to talk to a child about it, how to support another dog in the household when a pet is dying, and how to support yourself after the loss of a pet.
     
    I know it’s not the most fun to talk about, but I do feel that the more you can prepare for it properly, the better you can handle the difficult experience when it comes. 
     
    Dr. Katherine Goldberg, DVM, LMSW, is a veterinarian and social worker. She pursued her LMSW at Syracuse University after recognizing the significant human needs that arise in medical environments – for both family members of seriously ill patients, and medical team members themselves. A 2004 graduate of Cornell’s College of Veterinary Medicine, she has been instrumental in developing the field of palliative medicine in veterinary environments. She is grateful to have found a “home” in the social work profession, where social justice and the dignity and worth of each individual are core values.
     
    If you need some help dealing with the loss of a pet, or preparing for it in the future, this is a great episode for you.

    How to Look After Yourself When Dealing With Caregiver Burden with Veterinarian and Social Worker Dr. Katherine Goldberg

    How to Look After Yourself When Dealing With Caregiver Burden with Veterinarian and Social Worker Dr. Katherine Goldberg

    How do you deal with taking on the role of pet caregiver?
     
    We are lucky to have Dr. Katherine Goldberg who is a veterinarian and social worker with us for two episodes.  On today's episode we are talking about caregiver burden and pet owner self-care.
     
    When a dog is diagnosed with cancer or another serious illness, the focus is typically on them. What can we do to make them feel better? What can we do to help them? What can we do to extend their life? 
     
    Amongst all of that, we often forget about ourselves. We are not taking care of our emotional health or even our physical health sometimes. That can really take a toll on a pet parent.
     
    We're going to cover how to care for yourself so you can take the best care of your dog, how to deal with guilt, how to deal with the stress of the illness and more.
     
    If you are suffering from this now or know someone who is, this is a really helpful episode.

Genevasgd ,

Thank you so much!

My dog’s breeder sent one of your podcasts to me after he passed from acute leukemia. While I had done tons of reading and research trying to learn why he went downhill so fast and why we lost him a week after diagnosis (and what I could have exposed him to since what he had was so rare), your podcast on lymphoma gave me additional info about it and was so well done, that I began listening to all of your podcasts. I want to learn everything I can so I can provide the best lives for my dogs. Thank you so much for doing this! I come away from every podcast with at least one fact I didn’t know before.

Easy to digest expert information

Dr Cesario is a master when it comes to presenting important and relative information for canine health. She does so in a way that is easily digested and fun to listen to. She speaks with actual experts and cuts through to the stuff that pet owners need to know! Bravo!!!!
