You have to be aware that there may be some things that you can’t get out of your head. They might end up being stuck in there or you could possibly have nightmares. Some horrible things could be what animals come from being on a hoarder's property. Some of the things that I have seen from animals coming from there are horrifying. You get some animals that don’t have any hair or sometimes have an eye missing. There’s some cases that the animals are almost wild so you have to put all of them down and that could be heart breaking because it wasn’t the animals choice to live like that. When being a vet you have to be able to tell which animals need what medications, if an animal is really skinny and you don’t do any tests to see if it has worms then it could end up killing that animal later on. Or if a dog comes in and it has lumps on it you don’t want to say it’s cancer then find out later it was just fatty tissue. You want to be very aware of the different diseases that animals can get. So you want to know which shots and medications you need to give to the pets and if you even need to.

Your emotional stress could come from what you have to see that has happened to some of the animals.
