Australia’s veterinarian shortage

Australia has a veterinarian shortage, as professionals face stress, financial pressure and long hours. Kookaburra Veterinary Employment owner Wendy Nathan told the ABC there were currently more than 400 unfilled veterinary positions on her books alone. She said vets were leaving the industry –
blames stress, financial pressure and long hours, along with abuse and “emotional blackmail” from pet owners, for the problem.

Dr Nathan said the shortage was not helped by the high university entrance requirement, the five-year study period, and the low starting salary compared to dentists and engineers.

Darling River water quality declines with 10,000 native fish found dead from blue-green algae bloom

Some towns, like Menindee, have already been carting water as the river supply became unfit for human consumption.
“I’ve got 12 race horses on my property, and I’m afraid to give them this water. I don’t know how it’s going to affect them.”

algal blooms were driven by high temperatures, low rainfall and a build-up of nutrients from agricultural run-off.

The only real remedy for the deteriorating health of the Darling River is water flows.
