VirtuaVet Year in Review

VirtuaVet Provides Original, Inspirational Pet Medical Stories

On September 19, 2009, VirtuaVet went online with original, informative, and most importantly, inspirational pet medical stories.  Doc Truli shares original, inspirational, educational stories about real pets she treats in her animal hospital.  Usually Doc approaches the stories from a philosophical, ethical, and informative point of view.  Guided through these stories by a veterinarian who is in touch with your worries and concerns makes the medical *thing* work better for you and your pet!

“Every day, either a client or a hospital team member says, ‘I never knew that!’ or, ‘I never thought of it that way!’  Knowledge should be shared with as many people as possible.  If I can help animals and give people the confidence and inspiration they need to care for their loved ones and hope for the best in all situations, then I am a happy doctor!” says Doc Truli on the eve of VirtuaVet’s first anniversary.

Over 3,000 People a Week Find Inspiration at VirtuaVet!
