"He prayeth best who loveth best All things both great and small; For the dear God who loveth us, He made and loveth all."

Samuel Taylor Coleridge, 1797


Most people wander onto this site looking for a better understanding of their pet's medical problems.

You can search through the Articles I have written to help you do that. I try to write them in a way that is understandable to most everyone and I link them with (refs) to Wikipedia and journal articles that others have written. I update them when time allows. It is a time consuming task. You cannot assume that anything on the internet is free from errors and that includes this site.

I know this website is not flashy. I use old code-writing technology that leaves much to be desired. When you see the , I have reprogrammed the page to make it appear more "friendly" when viewed on your mobile device. If you don't see the heart, a desktop or laptop computer would be the preferred device to view it.

This website is written by a single South Texas veterinarian. There is no profit-driven company supporting this site. There is no IT guy programming and coding it and there are no proof readers other than you. I make quite a few typos. You can point them out to me and I will correct them.

As for the advertisements that run on this site, I find ads annoying too. It is my recent compromise with Google to help pay the bills my animal charities and this site generate. I play no part in selecting the ads they run. Google Adsense does that. But I would appreciate your whitelisting the 2ndchance.info site in whatever adblocking program you use.

Best wishes to you and your pets,
