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!
Meet our Veterinarians
Chyrle Bonk graduated from Oregon State University Veterinary school in 2010. She then joined a rural mixed animal practice. In 2017, she started writing veterinary content for various animal and pet-related websites and magazines in order to spread knowledge about pet care and diseases as a way to better many pets’ and owners’ lives.
She is now a part-time veterinarian, part-time cattle rancher, part-time content writer/editor, and a full-time mom of two. When not working on her veterinary endeavors, she enjoys spending time outdoors with her family and personal animal menagerie.
