There’s lot of pet health information available online, but the question is it is credible and correct. With so much misinformation on the internet,  The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and WebMD have set a pet health community called the Pet Health Exchange providing correct, up-to-date pet health information.

As with human medicine, research makes advances in pet disease control, and it’s important to have current information that’s relevant to the pet’s illness.  AVMA veterinarians are available to discuss pet health issues and give people an idea of the types of questions they should be asking their veterinarian.

However, the site is quick to point out, it is not a substitute for veterinary advise. It is an informational tool. Nor is it a substitute for emergency medical care. Quite often, especially cats, are adept at hiding their illnesses, and many times, they need immediate care once they let their owner know they are sick.

More than 20 veterinary Guest Experts are involved in the Healthy Pets Exchange, which encourages visitors to discuss issues and equip them with the right questions to ask their pet’s veterinarian. It is believed this dialogue can lead to the most appropriate diagnosis and treatments for their pets.

Pet owners are frequently very worried about a potential health issue with their pet, and frequently go blank when they get to the veterinarian’s office. PetMD helps these people navigate the system, equipping them with knowledge before being overwhelmed by the vet visit.
