A veterinarian reveals the most common questions people ask about their pets

Dr. Katy Nelson helps people do what’s best for their pets.

After eight years of working in veterinary emergency rooms, she now serves as the resident veterinarian at Freshpet and an associate veterinarian at the Belle Haven Animal Medical Centre in Virginia.

Here are some of the most common questions pet owners often ask her.

The reason for a pet’s upset stomach depends on what kind of animal it is.

“A dog is much more likely to eat a sock or steal a turkey leg off the sidewalk during a walk than a cat is,” Nelson said.

Nelson urges pet owners to be honest with veterinarians about what an animal may have imbibed, especially with the increasing legality and popularity of marijuana and CBD.
