All too often, due to the lack of diversity in the veterinary field, our communities, and veterinary schools we may feel like the only black person interested in veterinary medicine. Of course you're not alone, but do you know how many of us there are?
According to the 2018, Bureau of Labor Statistics, black veterinarians make up less than 1% of the 102,000 total veterinarians in the country. So if you're lucky enough to know a black veterinarian, get a picture because they're basically a unicorn!
This site is meant to bring us together, make us feel more magical and less like a black sheep. Reach out, find mentorship, find people you can lean on! We all know the struggle.
