In our Season 1 finale, we’re talking with Sarah, a clinical counsellor (aka a veterinary social worker) with the Ontario Veterinary College. Sarah shares what exactly ‘veterinary social work’ is and why it’s so important to the field of veterinary medicine. We also discuss what it’s like to deal with grief, how pets truly become members of the family, how to deal with imposter syndrome in such a small profession, and of course share personal stories around mental health.
We'll be back for Season 2 of The Shine Cast in September 2021!
