Blogs by Veterinarians

An upcoming Problogger assignment () involves analyzing ten blogs in my niche.  Ten?  It took me years to find one veterinary blog I loved, and now I have to gather ten?

Well, I can tell you they are out there.  Through twitter, #dogtalk and dvm360, I have found all sorts of very fun veterinarians who are also bloggers.  So I listed my ten favorite veterinary blogs, and kept the list open so I can add more as I remember or discover them.  I will, of course, have a similar Veterinary Blog Reviewing Policy as my Leadership Book Reviewing Policy.  (Unless I can say “Great Book!  Five Stars!” I will not say anything.  My Mom taught me that.)

I actually probably will not review the veterinary blogs at all, as it is much simpler for you to click a link to a veterinary blog than to buy or borrow a leadership book!  You do not need me to review the sites for you!  Just read through some of them and see what you think!  I will tell you this –

I think they are all great!  Five stars!

  5. Thanks so much for mentioning ours!!

  6. Of course Dr. Burcham – you write great stuff : )

  7. Thank you for holding a space for me. I love blogging but being the only Full Time doc at a busy practice has been difficult for me to keep up with. You’ve got some fabulous ones for me to add to my list. Maybe if I didn’t spend so much time READING blogs I’d be able to write more. LOL. What a double edged sword! Keep up the good work you rat lover you! ;-)
