WHAT THIS SUB IS ABOUT

This is a space in which current or prospective animal owners can ask questions and get advice from professionals within the veterinary community. All questions are allowed, including those that are not specifically about your pet (i.e. preparing for vet school, general animal husbandry questions).

We are not here to diagnose your pet or tell you specifically how he/she should be treated, but as a second source of information.

We will not give opinions on whether or not another veterinarian is treating your animal correctly or incorrectly.

If you are a veterinary professional (veterinarian, technician, student, etc.) and have non-medical questions, /r/veterinaryprofession would be a better sub to post on.


WHAT NOT TO POST

Giving OP specific instructions on medications and dosages is both unethical and illegal without an existing doctor-patient relationship. Such posts will be deleted, and repeat violators will be banned.

Answers involving anecdotes about your own pets are not usually appropriate in this sub and may be removed at the mods' discretion.

There are several common misconceptions about pet food that should not be posted to this sub and may be removed at the mods' discretion.

We will not give our opinions regarding the pricing of medical services, as this can be extremely variable based on geographic location and hospital capabilities.


BEFORE YOU POST

CHECK OUR FAQ!

If you have a specific question about your animal's diagnosed illness or potential causes of clinical signs you are seeing, please include the following information in the text of your submission:

  • Signalment (species, age, sex/neuter status, breed, body weight)

  • Short history

  • Relevant clinical signs (vomiting, diarrhea, coughing, fever etc)

  • Length of time you have seen these changes

  • Links to any test results, vet reports, X-rays etc. that you have

  • Your general location

The above information is very important in how we deal with different situations, so please ensure that you include this in your post.
