I have given advice to dog, cat and exotic pet owners for over forty years. During that time, I learned many things. An important one is that veterinarians like myself do not have a solution for all of your pet’s health problems.
By Texas Law, I am not allowed to be your personal veterinary “consultant” or “practice” veterinary medicine over the distance between us because I can not physically touch your pet. That is the job of your local veterinarian. But I can be a trusted friend. I can explain and walk you through the information and the treatment options I give in my articles and I can give you emotional support in difficult times and with difficult decisions. If I cannot, I will do my best to find the best person who can help your pet in whatever part of the World you live.
To do that, I charge a one-time fee of $58.00 that helps support this website and the animals I care for at no charge.
