Reputable and Well-informed Pet Care Websites


There is a lot of information out there and we support clients who are eager to do research about their pet's care and condition. The sites listed below are well-informed and, we believe, reliable. When you are searching for information, please just look closely before spending a lot of time on sites that are not linked to a university or vet school, a professional association, or some legitimate organization. There is a lot of bad information out there too and we don't want you caught up in it!

Follow these rules when doing your own research and it will save you a lot of time, money, and grief.
1. Veterinary college websites are good.
2. National breed specific organizations are good sources for breed specific problems.
3. Avoid business sponsored websites for the most part. Some are ok, some are just trying to sell.
4. Recognize and AVOID anecdotal information and websites built around one person's claim for a cure or horror story.
Stick to science.
