How do I know that the pet health care information
and the dog and cat question and answer topics are valid and credible
My vet tells me to be cautious about any online
veterinary medical information.

Great question! I agree totally with your local veterinarian and I
tell my own clients the same thing. As director of content for
this website I control whatever you see, including who the sponsors are
and where the links go. Keep a critical mindset about what is
presented online, including this site! If you see anything in
TheAnswerVet.com that seems in error or is confusing, I want to know
I have two motives for creating this site: The
main priority is to give dog and cat owners quick access to intelligent
answers to commonly asked pet dog and cat health care questions.
The second is to create revenue via the sponsors.
If I put my 40 years of veterinary experience to good use, and pet
owners respond approvingly, to earn a living providing a service to pet
owners is even more enjoyable.
