A Doctor, a teacher, and now a blogger

Dr. Rich LorangI  am excited to start blogging for Countryside Animal Hospital & Kennels. The title 'Doctor' always embarrassed me until I discovered it originates from the word 'teacher,' which I love. Whether it is explaining how organs, diseases, or different medicines work or how surgery can help an animal, I like teaching pet owners how to keep their furry friends healthy and safe. So I hope to make this blog another tool for the improvement of animal health and longevity.

Check out the all pages on our website, especially Pet Portal which you can not only use to manage your pet's health care. You can also use it to learn more about your pet's individual health and life-stage issues.  It is full of information about anything Dr. Signe Wass and I talk about in the exam room and write on the physical exam form. And it will likely have much more detail about many of the subjects I discuss here on the blog.

So if one of my blog posts sparks your interest, log in to your Pet Portal account and use it to deepen your learning.
