Finding Reliable Information on the Internet for Your Pet

Whenever your dog or cat starts to show signs or symptoms of disease, it is natural for some concerned owners to try and get information from the internet. It is important to know that it can be very difficult to diagnose a problem based on a list of symptoms on an internet site. We advise a veterinary examination to assess your pet’s health and to prevent a delay in treating significant medical conditions.

Due to the vast amount of information which is available, we would like to help you find reliable internet sites which may help you to understand the disorders which are diagnosed during the exam. We encouraged you to try and filter out the sites which are either commercial (selling a product) or testimonial (based on the experience of a few individuals). Supplements sold on the internet should be from a company that is a member of the National Animal Supplement Council (www.nasc.cc) and should not contain “proprietary” ingredients which may not be tested for safety and efficacy.

Veterinary associations, veterinary colleges and national breed specific sites are a good place to start your research. If you enter the topic and add “veterinary college” into the search you will get better information. An example would be “feline asthma veterinary college”.

Below is a list of veterinary sites which offer good information on wide variety of topics and as always the Bremerton veterinarians and staff at Wheaton Way Veterinary Hospital are available to answer your questions.
