Veterinarian Shortage in the United States
For everyone who is questioning why Pet Allies doesn't have a vet, this article will answer many questions.
Arizona Legislature May Help Ease the Vet Shortage
There is a veterinarian shortage in the United States; it is currently estimated that our country needs 7,000 more vets. That’s an average of 140 vets needed per state. Those are the statistics, but actual open positions are even higher; at approximately 13,000 there are a lot of locations that want a vet. Vet schools have a fixed capacity and there are about 3,200 new graduates a year. At the same time, approximately 2,000 vets are retiring each year. By some measures, veterinarians have one of the highest levels of student loan debt, at around $200k or more.
With that kind of debt, new graduates generally choose the highest-paying jobs, which leaves smaller communities and rural areas lacking. In an effort to help ease the shortage in Arizona, the state Senate voted to approve SB1271. If passed, this bill would establish the Arizona Veterinary Loan Assistance Program for graduates who obtain their veterinary degrees after January 1, 2023. The program offers student loan reimbursement of up to $100,000 for veterinarians who work in Arizona for at least four years, with at least two of those years at a municipal, county, or nonprofit shelter. Some specific agricultural practices will also qualify. The bill still needs to be voted on by the Arizona House of Representatives.
“If enacted into law, SB1271 would not make an immediate difference but at least it gives us hope for improvement in the future,” according to RJ Owens, executive director at Pet Allies in Show Low. “Before this, we really didn’t have reason to believe the situation was ever going to improve.”
Like many small-town shelters, Pet Allies has struggled to find a replacement for retiring and relocating veterinarians. Pet Allies is seeking to hire a spay/neuter surgeon to meet the needs of the community.
“Our mission is to provide non-lethal solutions to pet overpopulation, specifically including spay/neuter programs,” continued Owens. “We need to be able to increase the availability of spay/neuter appointments, and it has just been difficult in the current environment. If this bill passes, hopefully, the availability of vets will improve in the state. The need is really at a crisis level.” At this point, there is no date set for when the Arizona House of Representatives will vote on the bill. #petalliesaz #showlowazanimalshelter #veterinarians #vetshortage
