What is Pet MD
Pet news and recall alerts
The recall section shows chronological list of pet (not just dog) food and treat recalls. If you click on any of them you get a detailed list of what was recalled, by whom, why and contact information for questions and concerns.
The Daily Vet is 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 better understand your pets.
Purely Puppy featuring Dr. Lisa Radosta is the perfect blog for puppy parents.
Dog and Cat Nutrition Nuggets are the newest offshoot of petMD’s Nutrition Center, a joint venture made up of the talents behind Hill’s Pet Nutrition and the medical information authorities of PetMD.
Healthy Assurance’s mission, featuring Dr. Doug Kenney, is simple: To provide pet owners with unbiased, reliable, helpful, and timely information on pet insurance from a veterinarian’s perspective.
Symptom checkers (just like WebMD)
I did this with the symptoms of my Mollie's incident. Drooling, trouble eating and lack of appetite. I got a range of possibilities that could make the sanest pet parent a quasi hypochondriac. Not that it's a bad thing but, like with the WebMD symptom checker, use your knowledge of your dog to go with the information.
Online pet parenting classes
There are about 15 different classes listed that range from nutrition to training to exercise and socialization. These are all great for first time pet owners or as refresher courses where even experienced owners can learn new tricks.
On the main page is a few of the most common pet health articles on the site with a list of thousands more. You can look them up by condition or name and there are more listed than a pet parent would need to read at once.
I really like the layout and information that is available, I think pet parents will really like this site.
