Dr. Emily Thomas has been the cast of the Nat Geo most popular reality show “The incredible Dr.Pol” for some time now. Since the debut in 2015, she made a team with Dr. Jan Pol and his amazing team rescuing animal around Weidman, Michigan.
Nat Geo’s reality TV show premiered on October 29, 2011, and the hit show is running in its twelveth season. It follows the work of Dr. Jan Pol and his amazing team as they rescue animals in Weidman, Michigan. However, one face that is missing with the beginning of the 12th season is the incredible Dr. Emily Thomas.
Dr. Emily Thomas left the show
Dr. Emily left the show because she was overworked, underpaid, and stressed out, reportedly. She had to work long hours, sometimes up to 14 hours a day, without proper breaks or compensation. She also had to balance her roles as a mother of three young children, a wife, and a reality TV star, which took a toll on her mental health. She developed depression and anxiety, and even had suicidal thoughts at one point.
Dr. Emily tried to cope with the situation by taking antidepressants, seeking therapy, and talking to her husband and friends, but nothing seemed to help. She realized that she needed to make a change for her own well-being and happiness, and that of her family. She decided to leave the show and the clinic after finding a new job opportunity in Virginia, where she could work in a more supportive and rewarding environment.
Dr. Emily seems to be happier and healthier in Virginia, where she works as a veterinarian at a small animal clinic.
