My name is Julie Smith. I am passionate about animals and animal care. I have been working with animals professionally for most of the past 15 years. I’ve worked as a vet tech in both day practices and animal ER’s, as a commissary keeper and animal care volunteer in zoos, and as an operations manager of a large retail pet store chain. Over the years I have learned both what to do and what not to do when it comes to animal care and am still learning new things everyday. Quality animal care is constantly progressing as we learn more and more about the other species we share this world with. My goal is to share as much knowledge as possible so we can help make the world a better place for our animal friends.
