Who is this Dr. V person?
Dr. Jessica Vogelsang is one of the most popular veterinarians on the web. A graduate of the prestigious UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine with experience in both emergency and general practice, Dr. V- as she is known on her website- started her award winning website pawcurious in 2009 as a way to share her love of animals with the world. Quickly recognized as an entertaining and informative voice in the pet world, Dr. V has become a sought-after contributor in print, video, and radio.
Dr. V is a skilled writer known for making the complicated accessible, as a regular contributing author on sites such as pet360, Good Dog Magazine, Studio One Networks, dvm360, and Petfinder. She has been featured in multiple national outlets such as Ladies Home Journal, Outside Magazine, yahoo, and USA Today. Her first novel, All Dogs Go To Kevin, was picked up at auction by Grand Central Publishing (a division of the prestigious Hachette Book Group) and will be published in fall 2014.
Pet Care Expert
In addition to her writing, Dr. V’s personable demeanor and energy are a natural fit for video, and she is often spotted talking pets on Fox 5 San Diego and at the annual Helen Woodward Animal Center telethon. She was most recently spotted on ABC’s “The Lookout” reminding pet owners that clip-in hair extensions for dogs are not an integral necessity for the human-animal bond.
Veterinarian and Hospice Advocate
Dr. V’s medical experience spans over a decade in both general and emergency practice. She has also volunteered extensively in local shelters and through her international volunteer work. Dr. V is currently providing home care services and hospice care with Paws into Grace, a San Diego house call practice. Dr. V is one of a small group of veterinary and journalism experts to have earned the title of Certified Veterinary Journalist through the American Society of Veterinary Journalists. She is also a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, World Vets, Association for Pet Loss and Bereavement, International Association of Animal Hospice and Palliative Care, and completed a comprehensive course in veterinary acupuncture through the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society.
As the parent of two young children herself, Dr. V quickly realized how many good pet owners were overwhelmed with the responsibility of having a pet in the same house as children. Guilt, as opposed to concise resources and help with problem-solving, was the only thing that met many of these young families when they asked for help. Dr. V is committed to the concept of being a true ‘family vet’- helping parents juggling children and pets come up with realistic goals and solutions to keep the entire family safe and happy.
