Online veterinary hospital



    As a new parent (or even an older one for that matter), we often hope and wish we could have a doctor available online at all hours of the day. With pet owners, it is exactly the same. When your little friend isn’t eating properly or is getting fidgety in the middle of the night, it’s not always convenient to rush to the vet. Even if you have your vet on your speed dial and are comfortable enough to wake him up in the middle of the night with a flurry of que...
