10 Websites Your Vet Wishes You Knew About

4. Partners in Animal Health. Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine has an outstanding site with information for pet owners as well as veterinarians. Special topics include caring for diabetic cats, a pet owner’s guide to cancer, and managing destructive scratching behavior in cats.

5. House Rabbit Society. You need just one thing to appreciate this site: questions about rabbits.

6. ASPCA Pet Care. The ASPCA Pet Care section has direct links to the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center, a Pet Loss Center, Pet Food Recall news feed and many more resources. It’s good information from an organization out to do good in the world.

7. VCA Animal Hospitals Pet Health Information. VCA Animal Hospitals (a partner of Vetstreet) runs this site. Whether you want to learn about tortoises, tumors or alternative therapies, you’ll find lots of tips with real medical weight behind them.

8. American Association of Feline Practitioners. With videos, articles and a search engine to find feline-friendly vets (although I know there are lots of great vets who don’t show up on the list), this site is worth your time.

9. Worms & Germs. This University of Guelph blog is put together by Drs. Scott Weese and Maureen Anderson of the Ontario Veterinary College's Centre for Public Health and Zoonoses. It focuses on infectious diseases in pets, with a large emphasis on zoonotic diseases (diseases that can be passed to humans from other species).

10. Dr. Sophia Yin. Dr. Yin was a veterinarian, author, animal behaviorist and international expert on low-stress animal handling. Dr. Yin passed away in 2014, but her blog is still managed in her legacy. It covers a range of topics, and I am a fan of her work on reducing patient stress in veterinary clinics.

Bookmark these sites, and you’ll have safe, interesting information at your fingertips anytime you need it.
