Ask our Vets Any Pet-Related Question
We recommend searching our already existing article database before you submit your question:
Doggie Designer enlisted a pair of practicing veterinarians, Dr. Joanna Woodnutt and Dr. Beth Arnold, to handle your most pressing health-related issues in Ask a Vet. They will personally review your question and provide you with their expert opinion in as much detail as possible.
Thanks to their many years of practice, they’ve seen and heard it all, and they’re ready to provide you with accurate information that you can trust.
Please note that, in order to provide the best advice possible, they’ll need any and all information you can provide, including detailed medical histories, a thorough description of the issue, and any relevant photographs. Also, our vets cannot prescribe medication, recommend dosages, or comment on over-the-counter medication over the internet.
The vets do their best to follow the consensus author guidelines on animal ethics and welfare from the International Association of Veterinary Editors.
