This is very sad indeed. I was not aware of her but very aware of her beliefs of compassionate training and communication.

My heart goes out to her and all people who suffer with depression. I can't imagine the torment they have in their lives to the point of ending it. So sad.

What a tremendous and profound loss for the world of pet lovers and health care providers.
I wish her a joyful trip to the Bridge, where she was undoubtedly greeted by throngs of loving pets. This is such a loss for those of us left here. May she rest in peace and joy.
Really appreciate your post! There is no one quite like Dr. Yin, is there? A few years ago my neighbor's grandson asked to take Chagall to school for "Show and Tell." We got clearance from the school to do so. I downloaded several of Dr. Yin's wonderful handouts and posters on how children should interact with a dog. Preventing Dog Bites | Animal Behavior and Medicine Blog | Dr. Sophia Yin, DVM, MS Both Dr. Yin's very useful literature and my very child-friendly Chagall were a big hit!

On a separate note, several members seem interested in the possible implications of "compassion fatigue" on veterinary professionals. Here's an interesting read.

Chagall's Mom that was a very interesting piece on compassion fatigue. Thank you for sharing it. I was thinking as I started reading about whether the same thing occurs in human care providers and was interested to see that it is not so common there. I suppose it has something to do with the ability to have feedback from terminally ill human patients in a way that vets don't have from their patients.

I know for sure that one of the things that is very frustrating to vets (anger inducing) is when people bring in emaciated animals and tell the doctor she only stopped eating two days ago or they show up with an animal with a tumor the size of a softball and say they only noticed the lump yesterday. When the owner is either unobservant of changes or ignores them hoping they will "just go away" and then brings in an animal that could have been successfully treated if brought in early it must make their blood boil. An old neighbor of mine is a vet in practice with his two brothers. That was always his biggest complaint. He occasionally helped me out at emergency hours with my cats. My prompt requests for help were often greeted with thanks for being aware enough to call sooner than later.
