The Pet Campus Chronicles

  Expert advice from Wendy J. Whitelam, BS, CPDT-KA, ABC-L2

Welcome to The Pet Campus Chronicles:  18 years ago The Pet Campus, Inc. started a journey.  We have had the pleasure of caring for thousands of canine clients.  We’ve known some families for three generations of pets.  Additionally, there have been a lot of highs, some pretty low lows, and we’ve made some great friends along the way.

 

I’m so excited to have this blog. Future posts will span the gamut of a day in the life of The Pet Campus, Inc. The goal is to not only share the highlights of our busy facility but also to educate, entertain and occasionally create thought provoking prose.  Join us as we continue working hard to provide the best care possible for all of our furry friends. ~ Wendy
