Welcome to ThePetFAQ.com! We have created this website with one very big goal in mind: making it the ultimate resource for people who have questions about their pets. The FAQ in the name ThePetFAQ stands for Frequently Asked Questions, which is what we aim to answer.

Many people have questions about their pets, and an accurate, well-sourced, and to-the-point answer can sometimes be hard to find. The goal of this website is to remedy that. We want this to become a place where pet owners across the world can go for reliable, accurate, easy-to-process answers to their most pressing questions.

Who we are

ThePetFaq is run, operated, and contributed to by a collective of veterinarians, animal enthusiasts, volunteers, and pet owners. Meet some of our contributors:

Julia Dolin, DVM

Julia Dolin is a veterinarian and animal lover who has dedicated her life to the care and well-being of animals. After completing her veterinary degree from the University of California, Davis, she started working at a small animal clinic in San Francisco. Over the years, she has gained extensive experience in diagnosing and treating a wide range of pet health issues, from routine vaccinations to complex surgeries.

In addition to her work as a veterinarian, Julia is also a passionate freelance writer who loves to share her knowledge and insights about pet care with the wider community. Her writings, which cover everything from nutrition and grooming to behavioral issues and training tips, have been an invaluable resource for pet owners around the world. Through her writing, she hopes to help pet owners provide the best possible care for their beloved furry friends.

When she’s not busy at the clinic or working on her writing, Julia enjoys spending time with her own pets, which include a cat named Cleo and a rescue dog named Max. She also enjoys hiking, cooking, and traveling with her husband and children.

Josie Miller, Animal Shelter Volunteer & Writer

Josie Miller is a dedicated animal lover who spends much of her free time volunteering at her local animal shelter. She has always had a soft spot for animals and a strong desire to help those in need, which led her to start volunteering at the shelter several years ago.

In her role as a volunteer, Josie helps care for the animals, including feeding, cleaning, and socializing with them. She also assists with adoption events and fundraising efforts to support the shelter’s mission. Her compassion and dedication have made her a beloved member of the shelter’s community.

In addition to her volunteer work, Josie is also a passionate writer who loves to share her knowledge and insights about pet care with others. Her writing covers a range of topics, including adoption, fostering, training, and health and wellness. Through her writing, she hopes to inspire others to get involved in animal rescue and to provide the best possible care for their own pets.

When she’s not volunteering or blogging, Josie enjoys spending time with her own pets, which include a rescue dog named Bella and two cats, Whiskers and Mittens. She also loves hiking, reading, and spending time with friends and family.

Pushing the envelope

ThePetFaq is pushing the envelope by only publishing content that’s thoroughly researched and references studies, research papers, and other high-quality information where needed.

All content is meticulously fact-checked to ensure that you get the most accurate and up-to-date information possible.

However, while we strive to give you the most accurate information possible, the information we give is purely educational and should not be taken as a replacement for professional veterinary advice.
