Are you harming your pet by listening to Dr.Google?

What would we do without our friend Google?

In today’s day and age, we have all the answers we need at our fingertips for any problem that we have. It’s no surprise that many of us also turns to Dr.Google for guidance when it pertains to our pet’s health. While the internet does contain great information, knowing how to separate truth from fiction may sometimes be a life or death decision.

Here are a few critical things to be aware of should you do some research online for more information on a condition, behaviour or general advice about your pet’s health.

  • The website is a credible source; Avoid blogs and forum that may be modified by other users.
  • Credible references; Verify the source of the information that it was indeed acquired from a reputable source.
  • Always consult with your veterinarian with any changes and/or starting a treatment; Misdiagnosis of their symptoms may be critical to their life.

*** NEVER administer any medication or treatments to your pets based solely on something you have read on the internet. Always consult your veterinarian team as we are always here to help and to answer your questions.
