Great Sources of Information
We want you to think of us as your primary source of information. If you have a health concern about your pet, please contact us. There are many well written articles on common pet ailments. The list I am providing is from authors I feel are reputable sources. The internet is loaded with good and bad information. As your pet's doctor I will help you wade through the overload of information that exists.
If you wish to seek out more information online, here are some reliable sources of information. Should you come across any information you wish to review with the doctor, please bring a copy of it to your appointment.
