Even white-lies to your veterinarian can have consequences. Not telling the complete truth can hinder the ability for your veterinarian to diagnose and treat your pets. Withholding information can also lead to unnecessary (expensive) testing and prescribing medications may lead to lack of disease resolution, worsening illness, and added expenses.
The Morris Animal Refuge is a 501(c)(3) open admission shelter dedicated to helping the homeless, abandoned and unwanted pets of the Philadelphia region. Founded in 1874 by Elizabeth Morris, we were the first organization dedicated to sheltering and re-homing pets, and continue that legacy today by providing adoptions, a low-cost spay/neuter program, fostering, humane education and more.
