There’s no better resource for a dog lover than a veterinarian’s blog.
Not only are vet blogs filled with little-known facts and behind-the-scenes info that few are privy to… Vet blogs also show the personal character, fortitude, and never ending love for animals that veterinarians have, day in and day out.
These are the best vet blogs… ever! I refer to them often for their professional expertise and expert opinions.
Some of these are not updated very often. Most are only updated whenever something really unusual happens. But I’d encourage you to read through them now — working your way back to the very beginning — before these vets become too busy to keep up their blogs and they go away altogether.
I have learned so much just from spending a couple hours at each site, reading through all of the archived entries.
Doolittler – Dr. Patty Khuly shares her unique insights in this veterinary blog for pet lovers, vet voyeurs, and the medically curious.
Welcome to the real world of pet medicine… Your daily vet. This is my newest form of entertainment: keeping a blog to keep non-vets abreast of the tremendous varieties of issues we face in vet medicine. Although it’s a great career and I’m so thankful I had the luck to get into it and the tenacity to stay with it, it’s not always a bucketful of roses. In fact, it’s often more akin to a litterbox full of foul smelling you-know-what. But it’s always challenging. My goal is to satisfy your curiosity and maybe enlighten you on some things you may never have considered in the world of animal health. Sometimes it’s not pleasant and sometimes I’ll sound like an opinionated b—- but I’m going to stick to my goal. If we’re all lucky, you’ll have fun while I entertain myself — and you’ll manage to learn something, too.
Healthy Pets – Dr. Karen Becker is a natural health veterinarian who works closely with Dr. Mercola.
My goal is to help you create wellness in order to prevent illness in the lives of your pets. This proactive approach seeks to save you and your pet from unnecessary stress and suffering by identifying and removing health obstacles even before disease occurs. Unfortunately, most veterinarians in the United States are trained to be reactive. They wait for symptoms to occur, and often treat those symptoms without addressing the root cause. As you read through my articles, you’ll learn how to make impactful, consistent lifestyle choices to improve your pet’s quality of life. I’m looking forward to helping you make positive health changes in the lives of your pets.
Speaking For Spot – Dr. Nancy Kay is a veterinarian and lifelong advocate for dogs and their medical care. She shares eye-opening facts and helpful advice for dog owners.
I am a huge believer in the value of medical advocacy. It ensures our active participation and results in educated decision-making. These days, we humans wouldn’t dream of silently sitting by while the doctor scribbles a prescription and shows us the door—we ask questions, get second opinions, and compare treatment options. Doesn’t your dog deserve the same careful attention to his medical care?
Diary Of A Real Life Veterinarian – Dr. Krista Magnifico uses her blog to open the eyes of dog owners and animal caregivers everywhere. You’ll find lots of useful tips for day to day life with your dog, as well as extreme examples that we all need to be aware of.
I’m a small animal veterinarian dedicated to saving the world one wet nose at a time. I am passionate about compassionate universally accessible care for animals. Never give up, no matter how insurmountable it appears.
About Veterinary Medicine – Dr. Janet Tobiassen Crosby has been writing about vet medicine for nearly 20 years, specializing in small animals.
I strive to answer the “is my pet really sick” and “should I call the vet” questions, as well as provide information about a variety of veterinary careers. The human-animal bond and the benefits of pet therapy are also explored through articles and interviews.
News and Notes – Dr. Marty Becker is “America’s Veterinarian.” He is the popular veterinary contributor for ABC’s “Good Morning America” and is the host of “The Pet Doctor With Marty Becker” on PBS.
I’m on a “mission from Dog” to spread the Fear Free message to our profession. That’s mostly been about the fear the pet experiences, but they’re not the only ones fighting fear. Their owners are, and so are we, their veterinarians.
Pete The Vet – Dr. Pete Wedderburn, a veterinary surgeon, goes into great detail about specific things he’s seen in the veterinary office.
I am one of those ‘born-to-be-a-vet’ people – it was my ambition since I was old enough to think about such things. From the age of 5 years up, I only ever wanted to be a vet. Well, I have been a vet for over 20 years now, and I still love it. It is a fascinating job, with every day bringing new challenges involving interesting new animals and owners. This blog is intended to be an occasional record of some of the cases that I see, and some of the things that I get up to, during my typical working week. I post a new case every week from ‘real life’.
The Daily Vet – several veterinarians share their expertise and experience on a variety of topics that benefit everyday pet owners.
A blog featuring veterinarians from all walks of life. Every week they will tackle entertaining, interesting, and sometimes difficult topics in the world of animal medicine – all in the hopes that their unique insights and personal experiences will help you to understand your pets.
I like to help Dog Parents find unique ways to do things that will save time & money — so I write about "outside the box" Dog Tips and Dog Hacks that most wouldn't think of. I’m a lifelong dog owner — currently have 2 mixed breed Golden Aussies that we found abandoned on the side of the road as puppies. I've always trained my own dogs and help friends train theirs, as well. Professionally, I worked at a vet and have several friends who are veterinarians — whom I consult with regularly. (And just because I love animals so much, I also worked at a Zoo for awhile!) I've been sharing my best ideas with others by blogging full-time since 1998 (the same year that Google started… and before the days of Facebook and YouTube). My daily motivation is to help first-time dog owners be better prepared from the first day your new puppy enters your home. I like to help dog owners understand what's 'normal' and what you can expect in terms of living with and training your dog — how to get through the ups & downs of potty training, chewing, teaching commands, getting your dog to listen, and everything else that takes place during that hectic first year! When I'm not training, walking, grooming, or making homemade treats for my dogs, you will find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites). To date, I've written over 500 articles for dog owners on this site!
