baby doggieI always appreciate when likeminded news outlets align with the message of holistic animal health I’m striving to spread. Recently, JustPetNews shared my perspective on performing vaccine antibody titers as an alternative to simply administering a vaccine because “it is due.”

Thank you to JustPetNews for featuring Vaccicheck and my recent appearance on Hallmark Channel’s Home and Family in the following article: How to Prevent Overvaccination.
