Sara Redding Ochoa, DVM
Sara Redding Ochoa, DVM was raised in north Louisiana. She knew since she was a little girl that her dream was to become a veterinarian. She has always had a passion and love for animals. She attended Louisiana Tech University for her undergraduate degree. Sara graduated from LA Tech in 2011 with a degree in animal science. She then moved to Grenada West Indies for veterinary school. She completed her clinical year at Louisiana State University and graduated in 2015 from St. George’s University.
Since veterinary school, Sara has been working at a small animal and exotic veterinary clinic in east Texas, where she has experience treating all species that walk in the hospital. In her free time, she likes to travel with her husband Greg, bake yummy desserts and spend time with her 4-legged furkids, a dog Ruby, a cat Oliver James “OJ”, a rabbit BamBam and a tortoise MonkeyMan.
Edele Grey, DVM
“Raised on a farm with a menagerie of pets, working with animals was always my vocation. I graduated with my honors veterinary degree in Ireland and have since completed further education with a particular focus on equine sports medicine and orthopedics.
Passionate about animal welfare, I feel owner education and collaboration maximizes the health of animals while forging unbreakable bonds between owner and pet which provides both parties with the best quality of life.
I have a strong scientific background and I take a holistic approach in striving to provide my patients with the best evidence-based care and treatment options. In my little spare time, I love being with my horses and pup-sitting for all my friends. I consider myself incredibly lucky that I get to spend my days doing what I love and supporting owners and their beloved pets.”
We are delighted to have both Sara Ochoa, DVM and Edele Grey, DVM on board as our vetinary experts to ensure the information we provide is acurate and can really benefit your pups.

“I am the definition of a dog-lover if there ever was one. I’m sure fellow dog lovers will agree that a bond between us and our best friend is unsurpassable. I’ve grown up with two Jack Russell Terriers and an American Eskimo. The playfulness of the Jack Russells (Hot Dog and Ketchup) coupled with the cuddliness of the American Eskimo (Topher), my life is never boring and full of loyalty and love from my fur babies.
Being able to write about all of these products and being a doggy mom myself, gives me insight into what’s important when choosing the right products for our cuddly pals. I hope I’m able to help you and your dog make the best choices suitable for your needs!”
Janni is a dog-loving writer who grew up around animals, and who currently shares her home with two dogs – Emmett and Frankie. Emmett and Frankie are rescues with troublesome pasts, but despite that, they are both incredibly loving and well-behaved dogs.Providing dogs with an active lifestyle is something Janni is very passionate about, and it is also where she finds motivation for her work and her writing. She once hitchhiked across 10 states with a large rescue pup, just to prove that there is no good excuse for leaving a furry friend behind. Dogs make excellent adventure buddies.
Writing dog articles is a way for Janni to share knowledge, find inspiration and to combine the two things she loves the most – dogs and the written word.
“I’ve grown up around dogs most of my life, and I’ve enjoyed every moment with them. In my opinion, they are one of the purest, innocent creatures in the world. My dogs, Sadie and Keller, were my best friends growing up. They were black Labrador retrievers who filled my life with love, loyalty, and kindness.
I can’t imagine my life without dogs now, as they’ve always been a source of genuine happiness, and they’re always there for me when I’m feeling down. Being able to write for and about dogs is definitely a huge dream come true for me.
My goal here is to give you all the best, most honest and helpful suggestions for you and your dog in hopes that your journey together is just as good as mine with my dogs!”

Brad – Dog Nerdz Owner
As someone who cannot remember life without dogs around, I simply can’t live without them! There are numerous things I know now, that I wish I’d known before. My hope for Dog Nerdz has always been to provide owners with crucial tips and essential info in order to be the best dog owner they can be.
I have taken a lot of time and care while researching and identifying our amazing writers, who share the same values as I do (but write a lot better than me!).
I read, edit or approve the reviews and guides before they are released on the site. We have two amazing DVM’s who approve health-related articles, that I am not in a position to approve (these particular articles will have an “Approved By Veterinarian” badge at the top of the page).
I have learned so much about how to look after my precious pup Boogie! I hope Janni and Jess have helped you as much as they have helped me over the years.
