Veterinary Medicine, and pet and animal care interests in general, are represented by a huge number of websites. This is both good (meaning that some answers to a question burning in your mind at 4 A.M. are available instantly) and bad (some of the information online is just plain lousy). While not vouching for the authenticity of every word on every one of these sites (our own included), these were a few that seem especially useful, or maybe just cool, in our opinion.
www.veterinarypartner.com is one of our favorite sites, loaded with valuable info about dogs, cats, small mammals, and even reptiles, written by some of the top veterinarians in the country.
Go here for: Poison Control information, First Aid for pets, Behavioral info, and detailed information about thousands of medical and surgical conditions of animals among other useful stuff.

www.trupanion.com is the website for Trupanion, one of the nation’s leading pet insurance providers.
