2009 Year End Website Review

by Dr. Chris

December 28, 2009 I want to thank you for making this year a great year for this website. After all, if it isn't for people visiting and using this website, what is the point? This year I have seen tremendous growth in the number of readers and the number of subscribers to the newsletter. I want to thank all of you who have contributed so much to this website over the last year.

As 2010 starts, my goals for this website are to:

1. Continue to make it more user friendly.
2. Put less ads on the pages.
3. Try and answer even more Free Ask a Vet questions.
4. Less typos.

Here is a quick look back on the top 10 read pet articles on my website from 2009:

1. Newfoundland Dog: For some reason this is one of my most popular articles believe it or not.

2. Dog Illness: On this page of dog illnesses, symptoms, and diagnosis I have given you links to help you find the answers you need to help your dog.

3. #1 Killer of Pets: Do you know what the #1 killer of pets is? Depending on whom you talk to, you will have completely different answers.

4. Most Popular Cat Breeds: The Cat Fancier's Association Inc., is the world's largest registry of pedigreed cats. Here is a list of their 41 officially recognized cat breeds.

5. Dog Vomiting: This article about what to do if your dog is vomiting has always been one of the most popular articles on my website over the last 5 years.

6. Puppy Care: A nice collection of articles I put together about puppy care.

7. Dog Bites: Do you know what to do if your dog bites someone? Dog bites are very common, and if you have been a member of my newsletter for a while, you have likely heard me quote that the Centers for Disease Control (the CDC) estimates that more than 800,000 people in the U.S are bit every year by dogs.

8. Dog Allergy: Information on dog allergies and their treatment.

9. Dog Breeds: A collection of articles profiling different breeds of dogs.

10. Top 10 Dog Health Questions: Answers to the most common questions I get.
