Hi! I’m Dr Joanna Woodnutt!

I’m an experienced vet working mainly with companion animals. Whilst I still work two days a week for a local practice, I realized that I could help more people if I wrote down some of the things I talked about in my consultations. I now spend most of my time writing about pet health for a range of magazines and websites, so that people all over the world can learn more about their pets.
