I am Dr. Dawn Filos, a veterinarian practicing for over 25 years. I run a house call practice called Bucks Mercer Mobile Vet, in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Click here for details. I have always enjoyed the client education aspect of my profession, but have found that there is never enough time or opportunity to talk to animal lovers and clients about their pets in detail. This blog is such an opportunity. I plan to discuss topics that are timely, address questions that I find are common to my clients, and basically teach about subjects I think are important for those with pets. From tick and flea control recommendations, first aid and emergency advice, diet and disease prevention tips, new infectious diseases and how to avoid them, behavior modification and training tips, you name it, it will be on the blog. There will be links to good books, recipes for homemade treats, pet news and events, etc. As issues become particularly relevant, I will discuss them and hope to enlighten and empower my bloggers to better care for their four legged family members.
Questions can be posted in the Comment section. I will try to post those topics asked about, but am unable to specifically answer questions for individual pets.
