There are many wonderful animal and health related websites around. There are also many which provide deceptive misinformation. Listed here are a few of the sites our doctors and staff find helpful in education and animal welfare issues. It is not intended to be an all inclusive list of "good" sites, and it will grow regularly as new favorites are found.
A friend of our website, Annalee, found a great site that discusses and lists pet safe houseplants for those of us who enjoy having some green in our pet friendly homes. Some of our plant houseguests can be dangerous to our curious animal family members, so planning ahead with the safest plants, as well as trying to keep them out of the reach of our pets can allow beauty and family harmony.
