About Vet

Dr. Eric Bostrom In Michigan I am allowed to call in medications if needed to help your pet, but unfortunately, both the state of Utah and Florida do not allow any medicines to be called in for clients during a virtual visit. I am hoping that situation in Florida and Utah changes in the near future. I am glad to discuss a patient and offer advice and help in any way I can during a virtual appointment, especially if there are over the counter remedies that the pet could benefit from.

I graduated from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine in 1993. I am very experienced with dogs, cats and reptiles. I am currently the Medical Director at Wilsons Veterinary Hospital in Utah and have worked as an associate veterinarian, a relief veterinarian, at humane societies and at emergency clinics. I realize that our pets are really like family members and that pet parents will do anything that they can to provide the best care for their pets. My father is a veterinarian and I have been working with animals my entire life and know very well the special bond that is created with your pets. I currently live in Utah with my wife , 2 kids , 4 dogs,1 cat and 2 snakes, and 2 turtles (yes, a very busy household!) In my free time I love to hike, go birding, fishing and to get to the movies. I look forward to being able to help you and your pets in the near future.
