In this chat I enlist the help of fellow tech nerd (and CaRVTA Registered Vet Tech of the Year!) Liz Hughston RVT, VTS (SAIM, ECC) to talk about the life (or lack thereof) of a veterinary professional. We chat about the characteristics of veterinary people that put us at risk for a terrible work/life balance, how to recognize burn-out, and what we've found successful to keep us engaged in our work for over 10 years.

And, because we can't let a conversation go by without talking about SOMETHING medical-related, we end with our grossest veterinary experiences. An entertaining hour, to say the least!

What do you think? What's are tips you have on avoiding burn-out? What's YOUR grossest work story ever? Share your stories in the comments below!
