The lowdown on animal health

Veterinary medical association 
says animal owners need source 
of reliable information

Alberta’s animal owners have a new — and more reliable — online source for veterinary information: Alberta Animal Health Source.

“Too many pet owners and animal lovers rely on unverified information from unaccountable authors when they’re doing online research,” the Alberta Veterinary Medical Association said in release.

“While they often mean well, these unqualified sources can offer false, even harmful information.”

The site features four main sections: livestock, pets, wildlife, and horses. For animal owners, the website offers “tips and comprehensive guides to improve your animals’ overall health, happiness, and welfare,” the association said.

Featured topics examine specific issues or needs as identified by veterinarians who are members of the association.

The association recommends following it on Facebook and Twitter in order to keep up with the latest news and information posts on the website.

“By offering this comprehensive resource and unifying our online presence, we hope to empower animal owners everywhere to cut through the misinformation online and find reliable, veterinarian-approved information they can depend on to promote healthy animals, healthy people, and a healthy environment,” the association said.
