Do you know that we have a Pet Education site that is dedicated solely to educating people on how to provide better pet care? In my opinion, it is one of the most informative and educational pet sites on the web. The site is updated on the first and fifteenth of each month with a new featured article. One of my tasks as the Internet Proofer is to proof these updates.
The current featured topic is Kidney Disease in pets. Not only can you learn about kidney disease in dogs; you can also read about kidney disease in cats, birds, fish, reptiles, small pets, and ferrets! Are you aware that birds do not have a urinary bladder or that ferrets that are fed lower quality foods are more likely to develop bladder stones? How about this…high levels of copper in an aquarium can cause kidney disease!
Not only do we offer informative articles, written by our staff veterinarians, the site also includes pet quizzes, emergency information, actual cases from Drs. Foster and Smith’s clinic, and more! Are you wondering if you can take a walk with your dog? Check out our Pet News and Dog Walking Forecast.
Another feature is our “What’s the Matter?” button. You indicate the type pet you have, choose a letter of whatever you are searching for and you are supplied with a list of pertinent articles. For example, you have a rabbit and you are wondering how to litter train you rabbit; click on small pet and the letter L and then click on the article regarding how to litter train your small pet.
One of our goals here at Drs. Foster and Smith pet supplies is to help each of us be better pet owners through proper knowledge and guidance. Our Pet Education site is just another educational tool that we offer. Check it out! Let me know what you think…
