    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Dr. Will is a well-known small animal Vet in the Atlanta, GA, area and has even had his own radio segment, "Critter Chatter" on a local station. He will be here to answer questions and provide information about general pet health.

    We know everyone will enjoy having his expertise added to this wonderful board.

    Take care,

    Welcome Dr Draper!

    Are you are the same Dr William Draper who posted on the PetVetCafe group ... though you signed your name there as "bill dvm"?

    If so, I recall you posting last summer that you were about to start your residency in neurology. I hope it is going well. We look forward to your expertise here. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and gifts.

    Oooops, I just read Dr Draper's bio and I jumped to conclusions and see that he is not the same Dr Draper that posted on another list. But my welcome here stands. Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us.
