Lorie Huston, DVM is a small animal veterinarian with over 20 years experience with dogs and cats. She is also a free-lance writer and blogger, as well as a social media and search engine optimization strategist.
Lorie attended the Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine, graduating in 1986 as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. Prior to that, she attended the University of Nebraska, where she received a Bachelor of Science.
Lorie currently practices veterinary medicine in Rhode Island. She cares for both dogs and cats and enjoys interacting with pet owners and their pets. Surgery is her favorite part of the business day.
Several years ago, Lorie saw a need for more accurate information about pet care online. As a result, she started writing and blogging. You can find her at her personal blog, Pet Health Care Gazette. Lorie’s pet care and pet health articles have been widely published both offline and online, and can be found in FIDOFriendly, Pet Sitter’s World, and many others.
Her interest in social media and search engine optimization sprang up as a natural extension of her online writing. She currently maintains Social Savvy Pets.
Lorie shares her home with six beautiful cats, all of which were rescued, or had been abandoned at the hospital where she works.
All six cats are, of course, neutered/spayed. Though Lorie loves dogs as well, she feels that bringing a dog into the household would be unfair to Lilly, who is understandably very frightened of them. As a result, as long as Lilly is with Lorie, her family will remain entirely feline.
Some of Lorie’s other interests include gardening, fish-keeping, and reading.
