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.
