The mission of the Dog Health Guide is to provide dog owners with up to date, well-researched information on the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of common canine diseases. While not a replacement for veterinary care, we do believe that an informed owner who can ask questions and act in a dog's best interest is a dog's best friend.
If you think you may have a medical emergency, call your Veterinarian immediately.

Jeff Grill, Publisher
Health Guide is a labor of love for Jeff. He started the Guide
in 2006 after finding the search for quality canine health information
difficult and unsatisfying. When he did find it, it rarely
provided any depth or actionable information. Everything he
found was either too basic, or didn't provide an opportunity to ask
questions. The Dog Health Guide does both. In his role as publisher,
Jeff finds and works with the many writers, editors and veterinarians
that contribute weekly. He makes sure that every contributor has
the reader and their need for fast, accurate, and helpful information in
mind. Jeff has been researching and editing pet health articles for over 12 years. Nothing gets written that he wouldn't do for Biscuit.

Cathy Doggins, Editor
When not writing about dogs and other small animals, Cathy can be found playing with her Jack Russell and Labrador Retriever. Like Jeff, she has a passion for everything to do with dogs. She tirelessly is dedicated to the Dog Health Guide and works hard to make sure that every article and suggestion is written in a straightforward way that helps the reader. If Cathy doesn't understand something, she knows that readers will feel the same way.
