"There were lower levels of mental wellbeing among equine veterinary surgeons and equine veterinary nurses during the COVID‐19 pandemic compared to the situation prior to the COVID‐19 pandemic," the study concluded.

An open access article based on a survey in June of 2020 to the British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) member database looked at well-being scores for veterinary surgeons, veterinary nurses (techs) and vet students. They compared these scores to comparable survey results from 2019 (prior to the pandemic).

"Mental wellbeing of equine veterinary surgeons, veterinary nurses and veterinary students during the COVID‐19 pandemic" was authored by T. S. Mair, D. R. Mountford, R. Radley, E. Lockett and T. D. Parkin.

Conclusions

"There were lower levels of mental wellbeing among equine veterinary surgeons and equine veterinary nurses during the COVID‐19 pandemic compared to the situation prior to the COVID‐19 pandemic. Equine veterinary nurses appeared to be more likely to report lower mental wellbeing than veterinary surgeons, and furloughed veterinary surgeons reported lower levels of mental wellbeing than veterinary surgeons that continued working during the lockdown."
