Ask a Vet

When you need answers to potentially life-and-death questions involving your best friend, it’s reassuring to know that the person on the other side of the screen actually knows what they’re talking about.

With that in mind, enlisted the help of practicing veterinarian Dr. Brooke Ramos to handle your most pressing health-related issues in Ask a Vet. She will personally review your question and provide you with her expert opinion in as much detail as possible.

Please note that, in order to provide the best advice possible, she’ll need any and all information you can provide, including detailed medical histories, a thorough description of the issue, and any relevant photographs. Also, the vets cannot prescribe medication, recommend dosages, or comment on over-the-counter medication over the internet.
