Additional funding is vital for Vetlife to continue supporting all those in the veterinary community in need of assistance through our three services.

In 2023 we responded to 4,042 Helpline enquiries – an average approaching 11 contacts per day

“Getting good help is essential. From personal experience, I can applaud Vetlife Helpline for getting me through my own dark periods. I feel that, because so many factors relate to events specific to veterinary work, to have someone at the end of the phone who knows our industry is reassuring.”
