Dream Christmas List

This is kind of a follow-up post to Thursday's Realistic Christmas List post.

Pet Safety During the Holidays

I have been very hesitant to wade into animal health related content on here. I'm not a veterinarian and I haven't worked in a vet clinic in nearly a year. However, I learned a lot in my many years of working in clinics and wanting to be a vet that I believer more pet owners … Continue reading Pet Safety During the Holidays
