Dr. Lorie Huston, DVM

Dr. Lorie was a wonderful veterinarian and a friend. She was a certified veterinary journalist, pet health/pet care expert, author/freelance writer/blogger, and blogging/SM/SEO consultant. She practiced small animal veterinary medicine for over 20 years. Her favorite part of veterinary medicine was surgery.

Dr. Lorie was hoping to get a dog, but because one of her adoptive cats was afraid of them, she shared her life with cats only. That, however, didn’t make her a crazy cat lady. She was kind and always ready to help everybody.

It was a big loss for the pet world when she passed away in September 2015.

Her blog covered cats, dogs, exotic pets, fish, and horses. She contributed to veterinary blogs such as The Daily Vet column on petMD. You can read her columns here.

It is my honor that her contributions to my blog can be part of her legacy.
