Sites Recommended by our Doctors

We have provided the following links to websites that we believe provide reliable information on a variety of topics related to veterinary medicine and pet health care. We will update this page frequently, and would love to hear your ideas on links that you would like to see us add to this page to share with other pet owners.

Please be aware that many of the hundreds of sites devoted to pet care on the web do not contain information from reputable sources, and many are geared solely to sell their products by providing numerous testimonials as to the benefits of their miracle products. Do not believe everything you read. There is no regulation of what is written on the web; people can easily say whatever they want with little concern for authenticity.
 

Information can also become outdated. Even with reliable webs, there may occasionally be some controversial information. Call us if in doubt. Feel free to send us your favorites. If we like them, we will add them to our list!
