Consumers are becoming more interested than ever before in their food and how it is produced. Their questions deserve to be answered in a non-defensive, open and honest dialogue. I look forward to engaging in this dialogue and would be happy to answer your questions, as well. My email address is AskDrDorman@pahc.com.
When it comes to antibiotics, as the mother of three, it is vitally important to me to ensure they are effective when needed most: when one of my kids is sick. As a veterinarian with 20 years of experience, it is also important to acknowledge the value of antibiotics to the welfare of animals and safety of our food.
I took an oath when I became a veterinarian to protect animal health, prevent animal suffering, and to promote human health. Twenty years later, I still take this oath very seriously.
