Meet our Veterinarian Experts

While I’m an avid lover of all small pets, what I’m not is a veterinarian. Despite this, I want to ensure that all of the content written on this site is as accurate as possible.

To do this, all content is fact-checked by a veterinarian specializing in the care of small pets – so you can be confident that everything posted on Small Pet Guides is science – and veterinarian – backed!
