The AVMA Trust offers liability and life insurance options of coverage for veterinarians of all species. The Trust also publishes a newsletter several times a year to help veterinarians understand and better plan for the contingencies of practice and life.
In this Summer newsletter, there are articles about:
- Best Practices Before, During and After Euthanasia
- Euthanasia Closed Claims (including one where a horse injured an owner during euthanasia)
- When to File a Claim
- Euthanasia and the Impact of COVID-19
The newsletter also noted: “Euthanasia is one of the most emotionally taxing services that veterinarians provide. Though there’s some consolation in the knowledge that euthanasia allows suffering to end, seeing animals in their final moments and comforting upset clients does take a toll. If you’re struggling, don’t hesitate to seek assistance immediately. If you’re unsure where to begin, consider starting with these resources on emotional wellbeing.”
