Our Mission

After spending a decade at an emergency clinic and serving as Medical Director for a pet urgent care facility, I’ve encountered a wide array of medical situations and have honed my expertise in various aspects of veterinary medicine, including telemedicine, shelter medicine, and hospice and palliative care.

My passion for ensuring the health and happiness of animals has driven me to create this blog as a valuable resource for pet parents like you. Here, you’ll find a wealth of information aimed at keeping your furry friends as healthy as possible, along with guidance and support for navigating any challenges that may arise. Whether you’re seeking advice on preventive care, tips for managing common health issues, or assistance in making informed medical decisions for your pet, you’ve come to the right place.

I’m committed to providing you with complete, accurate, and thorough information about pet health, so you can feel empowered to make the best choices for your furry companions. Together, we’ll embark on a journey to ensure the well-being of your pets, because they deserve nothing less than the very best.

Thank you for joining me on this mission to prioritize the health and happiness of our beloved pets. Here’s to many years of shared knowledge, support, and compassion for our furry family members.

Warm regards,
Dr. Gina
