ANIMAL HEALTH CENTER
The New Jersey Veterinary Medical Association is committed to providing pet owners with accurate information about medical care for their pets. The Animal Health Center is intended to offer you general information about health, care and behavior issues that are commonly encountered by pet owners. You can explore the Animal Health Center in three different ways:
All Things Animal
Information on a wide variety of specific health, pet care and behavioral topics in a Question and Answer format.
Pet Care Tips
Short items of information and fun facts about pets.
Pet Care Articles
More detailed information on a variety of animal-related topics.
Remember – You are the first line of defense for the health and well-being of your pet. Our pets can't talk, so they rely on us to notice the changes in behavior – some times very small changes – that can signal that they don't feel well. If you think there may be something wrong with your pet, there is no substitute for a careful examination by your veterinarian. Veterinarians are trained to recognize and interpret the symptoms that signal an illness or injury. Please consult your veterinarian right away if you have an urgent animal care question.
