by Ron Kurtus (revised 21 February 2018)
The following are websites and books on Animal Health:
- Vet information
- General pet health
- Cat health
- Dog health
- Pet safety
- Animal ages
Use these resources to help your understanding of the material.
Note: There are a number of books and Web sites that specialize in providing information about animal health information. The reason to use an animal health-oriented Web site should be to get some preliminary information on a health issue before you go to the veterinary. You should always check several sites for the same information to get a broader view of the opinions offered.
