Resources

While Dr Google can be a fantastic resource, there is also a lot of misinformation out there. For a reliable online source of pet health information we recommend VeterinaryPartner.com. This site has a large amount of information on pet health, medications, surgery and behaviour. Keep in mind this is a US based site so not all the information is relevant to our pets here in Australia but still an excellent source of quality information. This site is an extension of a very well used site by vets worldwide for discussion of cases and sharing information.

If you ever want to learn more about the medication your pet has been sent home with then look up the Pet Pharmacy section where you will find information on all the common medications we use in our pets.
