Please do not ask emergency or other specific medical questions about your pets in the blog comments. As an online informational resource, Preventive Vet is unable to and does not provide specific medical advice or counseling. A thorough physical exam, patient history, and an established veterinary-patient-client relationship is required to provide specific medical advice. If you are worried that your pet is having an emergency or if you have specific medical questions related to your pet’s current or chronic medical conditions, please contact or visit your veterinarian, an animal-specific poison control hotline, or your local emergency veterinary care center.

Please share your experiences and stories, your opinions and feedback about this blog, or what you've learned that you'd like to share with others.

Tales from the clinic and beyond
Every other week, Dr. Jason Nicholas (Dr. J), and his co-host Mia, will bring you preventive health and safety information for your cats and dogs. Dr. J started Preventive Vet in response to the many heartbreaking, and preventable cases he saw in the veterinary emergency room, and in his general practice work. Mia is an animal lover, with two fur babies of her own, and will be doing her best to represent the listeners, and get as much info out of Dr. J as she can.
