According to renowned exotic animal veterinarian Dr. Susan Brown, "The more thoroughly educated a person is about the pet he or she owns the higher the quality of life for that pet. In addition, the bond between human and pet is richly enhanced through further understanding." In our Small Mammal Health Series, Dr. Brown shares her expertise on general husbandry, proper diets, and specific common (and not so common) medical disorders in rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, and other small mammals.

VetzInsight: A Different Place to Learn
The same folks who provide Veterinary Partner also offer a blog called VetzInsight. Rather than explain what occurs in a disease process and how to treat it - which was Veterinary Partner offers - our goal is not only to inform on larger issues but to tap into the numerous emotions at play within the human-animal bond. We're here to learn and have fun. If you're interested in learning more about a broader look at veterinary medicine, the veterinarians, the clients, and the patients, VetzInsight is a great learning experience.
