By Rachele Baker, DVM – I am a veterinarian, writer, published author, and award-winning blogger living in the beautiful state of California. I received my Bachelor’s degree from the University of California Davis in Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology in 1997, and then went on to obtain my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2001. I have been a practicing small animal veterinarian in the state of California since 2001. I owned and managed my own veterinary hospital for four years.
I have a golden retriever named Savanna who is the love of my life. You can see her with me in my profile photo. I love to explore country trails and parks with Savanna. I also have a large Maine Coon cat named Chessie who spends the better part of each day lounging on Savanna’s bed. I adopted Chessie after I found her abandoned on the front doorstep of my veterinary hospital one morning when I arrived at work.
I am in the process of writing two books for pet parents. One of the books will be entitled “7 Simple Ways To Keep Your Dog Healthy” and one will be entitled “Dogs With Allergies: How To Stop The Itching, Scratching, and Chewing.” You can learn more about these books in my post entitled “Dr. Baker’s Upcoming Books.”
