I ran an emergency vet and now run a shelter.

Shelters are worse. Much worse.

Shelter work has similar suicide rates and typically lower pay and much more physical labor than vet med. It’s a tough gig that not everyone is capable of. Vet med is hard too, not denying, but shelter workers are under appreciated bc people think it’s just playing with puppies without the medical background.
