User-friendly Pet Health Library
PROVIDES PET OWNERS WITH EASY-TO-NAVIGATE INFORMATION VERIFIED BY AMC EXPERTS
February 17, 2021 – The Animal Medical Center’s Usdan Institute for Animal Health Education today launched an innovative, user-friendly Pet Health Library.
This resource provides information on commonly-searched and frequently-diagnosed illnesses and conditions, wellness and prevention tips, and downloadable resources, as well as areas of expertise within AMC. All content is verified by AMC experts and will be updated weekly.
“Through our ongoing educational and outreach efforts, we know that pet owners are looking for reliable and accurate pet health information online,” said Michelle Leifer, Director of the Usdan Institute for Animal Health Education. “Our new Pet Health Library, the first of its kind, will provide trustworthy and timely information not only for pet parents around the world, but for anyone looking for reliable facts about animal health. I am thrilled to launch this initiative and continue to grow it in the coming months.”
Each topic will provide:
- A background of the disease or illness
- An overview of risk factors
- Clinical signs and symptoms
- Diagnostic measurements and procedures
- Treatment options and prevention information
- Helpful illustrations including photos and videos
“As a new and valuable component of AMC’s Usdan Institute for Animal Health Education, the Pet Health Library provides in-depth pet health information directly from our veterinarians,” said Kathryn Coyne, President and Chief Executive Officer of AMC. “No other online pet health portal offers this kind of deep content in collaboration with board certified veterinarians.”

I DNAed My Dog – “Just like Lab’s,” was the title of the advertisement which led us to adopt these two sweet pups, Prince and Lucinda into our family twelve years ago.
As they grew Prince resembled a Lab for sure and Lucinda started looking like she carried German Shorthair Pointer genes. Years passed and while we never knew exactly the mix we did know it was a winner.
Miss Lucinda’s Puppy Stew – Through the years I have experimented with a variety of foods and mixtures. Trial and error has resulted in the perfect mix.
