Though there are as many definitions of “pet” as there are people who own them, a pet is generally considered a domestic or tamed animal kept for companionship or pleasure. Pets include everything from cats and dogs to birds, backwater reptiles, various rodents such as mice and gerbils, and fish.
People also keep horses, cows, sheep, rabbits, ferrets, and even hermit crabs. All pets require an environment suited to their species, and all of them can have physical ailments that may require a veterinarian’s attention – usually at some inconvenient time when the local vet’s office is closed.
The pet Experts on JustAnswer.com treat all kinds of pets, from goats to red devil fish, and are available to you without making an appointment at any time day or night, even on holidays, and without requiring you to bundle up your pet for travel.
I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.Jacksonville, Fl.
