Veterinarian on moderator team?

Postby skyfishcafe » Mon Jul 06, 2020 4:44 am

From time to time I see the claim that one of the site moderators is a veterinarian. Is there anything to this claim?

My understanding is that Tracie is not a veterinarian. Unless something has changed since this was posted?

Maybe a vet nurse ?

My understanding is she has never claimed to be a fully trained reptile veterinarian .

There is no substitute for having your dragon examined in person by a competent reptile vet if it has a health issue or an injury , is very dangerous relying on advise given by people on a message board who have not physically seen the dragon or the symptoms NO MATTER HOW EXPERIENCED or well trained in veterinary science or biochemistry they happen to be.

Hi Tracie, thank you for clarifying! I had seen the claim here on the forum and also on Reddit, so just wanted to see if I was missing something. I'd never seen you indicate status as a veterinarian, so I wondered if the claim was referring to someone else I wasn't aware of. Seems it might just be a misunderstanding. Many thanks for the work you do!

Kingofnobbys, I hear you on the importance of getting professional eyes on the patient. It's an altogether different ballgame compared to gathering information on husbandry or behavior!
