No doubt its tough-smallies but cant be as bad as our practice.
Regularly 12-14 hour days.On call 24/7 1 in 1 rota.
Working in terrible condition(cold,rain,wind),poor facilities-we regularly use the car headlights if called out late.Not fun when the battery dies.
Doing your best for all clients and getting abused verbally despite this.
Then,having to call and call to get paid for the work u do.Often ending in a court case.
I feel like being an associate in a small animal practice with a good rota would improve lifestyle a lot.
