About Drs4Pets

Drs4Pets is a collective of veterinary professionals with diverse backgrounds--clinical vets, corporate vets, consultants and authors--  and a shared interest in animal health and pet nutrition.

Working together to develop feature articles that are easy to understand for the non-medical pet parent, we provide relevant and timely information for everyone interested in learning more about pet care and health. We also consult with pet health companies and pet food companies to provide guidance for new formulas and customer support.

If you have a specific pet-related question and you don't see it answered on the site, write us and let us know! We strive to provide information in line with the pet caregiver's "hot spots".
