Ask VetChick your question

Have a question about your pet that you’d like answers to? Not sure you understand the diagnosis? Want an explanation in plain English?

Now you can send an email to Dr. Karen Louis and get a personal reply! Here’s what I can and cannot do:

  • I CANNOT legally (or reliably) make a diagnosis or prescribe medication, because I have not examined your pet in person. Please don’t ask me to do either, it just gets awkward.
  • I CAN help you understand the disease your pet has been diagnosed with by your veterinarian. I can also discuss general treatment options for you to consider.
  • I CAN give you possible diagnoses based on symptoms (ie-here’s 5 things it might be).
  • I CAN help lower your anxiety about your pet’s condition by giving you a better understanding of it.

Here’s how it works:
