Compassion fatigue can affect anyone in the role of healer, helper, or rescuer. For a number of reasons, those in the veterinary profession are especially vulnerable. Profoundly significant, it is recognized as the greatest threat to personal, professional and financial success among those who truly provide compassionate care.
