Using a Quote From a bark and whiskers Article

Copy the quote from a bark and whiskers article, and cite the article name as your source.

“PFAS belong to a family of more than 3,000 structures of highly fluorinated chemicals used in industrial processes and consumer products. As a result, these chemicals are ubiquitous in our environment, having migrated into the air, household dust, food, soil and ground, surface and drinking water,” says Dr. Karen Becker on her article “The Alarming Toxic Chemicals Lurking Inside Pet Food Bags.”

About Dr. Becker

Dr. Becker

A federally licensed wildlife rehabilitator for more than 30 years, Dr. Becker established the first proactive animal hospital in the U.S. after graduating from veterinary school in 1997. She later opened an exotic animal clinic in 2001 and a rehabilitation and pain management clinic in 2011. Dr. Becker is also the first veterinarian to give a TEDx Talk on species-appropriate nutrition.

Today, she continues to share her knowledge with proactive pet guardians (aka “Longevity Junkies”) and other veterinary professionals through her extensive lectures and written works. In 2021, Dr. Becker co-wrote “The Forever Dog,” with Planet Paws founder Rodney Habib. It became the first ever No.1 New York Times best-selling book about intentionally creating canine well-being.
