Mother’s Day Takes on New Meaning with Vet Candy

Veterinary moms are on a mission to make life easier for other working vet moms

Montclair, New Jersey: Working moms face serious challenges every day of their lives. They must balance work with their home life, which often leaves them with little time for their personal interests. In addition, they are typically the primary caregiver for children and that can leave them stressed out and exhausted.

Vet Candy is here to help! Vet Candy is an innovative digital hub created by a group of veterinary and expert professionals – most of them are working moms. The idea is to establish a content delivery system that will make it easier for working veterinary professionals to be effective at work and at the same time have time for their children and family.

Vet Candy features clinical updates, scientific news, and expert tips, together with the latest lifestyle and health trends. It is a comprehensive source for the busy veterinary professional.

"As a mother, wife, and hospital owner, I know how precious each minute of my day is," said Dr. Kathryn Primm, Vet Candy advisor. "The goal of Vet Candy is to make our busy lives easier, by providing updated news and information that is required in our profession."

There is currently too much information for professionals to absorb, which can be frustrating. Vet Candy’s unique approach to the often-overwhelming influx of news is refreshing. They provide the latest information for working professionals looking to stay on top of the latest scientific and clinical news, who may not have enough time or energy to keep up. 

“Recent studies show that veterinary professionals, especially those that are female, find their career highly stressful,” says Julie Legred, CVT, former executive director of National Association of Veterinary Technicians of America and Vet Candy advisor, “lack of work life balance can make them at risk for depression. At Vet Candy, we hope to help veterinary professionals balance a career and their busy personal life, with expert tips ranging from healthy living to parenting- all the support we as mothers need to know and all in one place.”

Vet Candy provides a free subscription based weekly email featuring clinical updates, scientific news, and lifestyle tips. Content is also shared on Vet Candy’s social channels and through an app that is available for free on i-Tunes.  

“Veterinary medicine is dominated by women, with more than 60% of veterinary professionals being women and a good majority of them are also moms.” says Dr.  Marta Sanchez-Emden, Vet Candy contributor, mom of two, and owner of Animal Health and Rehab Center in Miami, Florida, “The pressure working moms have on them is real, we hope to take some of that pressure off, so they can enjoy their lives.”

Vet Candy aims to make life easier for the busy veterinary professional. Through well-researched content, inspirational profiles, together with the latest scientific news and trends, the site functions as an all-inclusive and informative lens into the world of veterinary medicine.
