Dr. Karen Becker, DVM, CVH, CVA, CCRT

Most Followed Veterinarian in the World

My first recommendation is for you to make your own home-made treats so you know exactly what is in them. If you can’t, then my second recommendation is to let our family make the treats for you. Dr. Karen Becker, DVM, CVH, CVA, CCRT
