Actually, for me, working at the shelter is a stress-reliever. My biggest headache is trying to explain to a client over and over again why their dog/cat needs a certain treatment, why it is important to follow directions exactly the way they were prescribed and why the animal did not get any better when the prescription treatment was changed without consulting me because "they heard of this new treatment on the internet."

Working with the ACOs really relaxes me since I feel that we have the same goal in mind; the care of the animals. We don't always agree in what treatment is best but we agree to try to make the animals better and reasonably talk out the options in order to come out with the best solutions for the animals. Although it is work, to me it is relaxing.
