We’re excited to introduce you to a new series of books by Dr. Jason Nicholas, founder of Preventive Vet. Dr. Nicholas, better known as “Dr. J,” a very well-respected veterinarian and expert in pet safety. He has traveled the world to share his knowledge and raise awareness about pet illness and emergency prevention. In 2011 he established Preventive Vet as a type of “one-stop shop” for online resources where pet owners can get reliable information from a variety of veterinary specialists, ranging from emergency practitioners to board-certified surgeons, oncologists, and even behaviorists.
Preventive Vet’s mission is to help change the way we look at veterinary care. Instead of treating the issues once they have already occurred, Dr. J and his team focus on ways we, as pet owners, can prevent these issues from happening in the first place. As described on the Preventive Vet website, “We want to help you avoid the emotional and financial hardship of pet illnesses and emergencies. And, since not everything in a pet’s life is preventable, we also want you to know what to do when your pet gets sick or injured and recognize when it’s time to take them to your vet or the Animal ER.” Preventive care often costs less than half of what it does when treating things once they have become more advanced. Knowing what to look out for and knowing when to take your pet to the vet can help with early diagnosis and treatment, which can increase the likelihood of successful outcomes.
Their work is not all about pet health, either! They work with trainers and behaviorists in order to provide the most up-to-date information on pet behavior and training guidelines. They cover a range of topics, from the importance of
socializing a new puppy to how to help your dog who is afraid of thunderstorms. Preventive Vet pairs extremely well with our own books and DVDs. Their philosophy is a lot like ours, with the primary goal of providing our pets with the tools necessary to be as stress-free as possible, no matter what life throws at them. In fact, we love what Preventive Vet is doing so much that we are now selling their books on our online store!
