On average, survey respondents report getting about six hours of shut-eye a night. Curiously enough, practitioners under 40
years of age get less sleep than older practitioners, the survey shows.
Veterinarians were asked, "How satisfying is your work?" The vast majority of practitioners find satisfaction in practicing
veterinary medicine. About 64 percent of male respondents report work as "very satisfying," while 56 percent of women labeled
it that way. More women found their work "somewhat satisfying" as compared to 32 percent of their male counterparts. A very
small percentage of respondents classified work as dissatisfying.
