I live in the High Rockies of Colorado and am a passionate outdoorsperson. As someone who loves spending time on the trail with a canine partner, I understand how much your pets mean to you in your unique circumstances. My veterinary passions include skin, ear, and allergy issues, and my years of experience in emergency medicine provide valuable insight for how to perform teletriage. I also feel especially called to serve to the best of my ability with end-of-life issues. Discussions about quality of life and deciding when and how to euthanize a beloved pet are some of the most difficult conversations we'll ever have, but they're also really, really important. I'll do my best in those difficult circumstances to non-judgmentally coach pet owners with compassion and kindness.
Do you have an athletic pet possibly prone to joint injuries? Does your dog play rough at the dog park? Does your cat like to explore the great outdoors? Maybe your pet is a lap-warmer or couch potato whose greatest risk is a torn toenail? Regardless, take some time today to put the supplies together so you're prepared for any situation.
One of the most important decisions pet parents can make for their pets' well-being is what to feed them. Unfortunately, when it comes to navigating the ocean of information available about pet nutrition, pet parents have to wade through a literal feeding frenzy of misinformation.
