About Us

Every other week, Doctor Jason Nicholas (Dr. J) and his co-host Mia will bring you preventive health and safety information for your cats and dogs. Dr. J started Preventive Vet in response to the many heartbreaking, and preventable cases he saw in the veterinary emergency room, and in his work in general practice. Mia is an animal lover, with two fur babies of her own, and will be doing her best to sit in for all of the listeners, and get as much info out of Dr. J as she can. It's the Preventive Vet team's goal to spread as much preventive education and awareness as possible, to avoid suffering, and save lives.
