It’s A Hard Duck Life is a personal blog written and edited by Shawnee Williams. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified independently. I do not claim to be an expert, just purely an animal lover and non-registered veterinarian technician sharing my opinions and experiences. I am not a veterinarian, so I ask that you do not ask me for veterinary advice for your animals. Always seek a trained and licensed veterinarian for treating any medical conditions. Any views expressed do not reflect on my current or past employers.

The intent of this blog is to educate and inspire people to care for ducks and other hobby animals. To compensate for my time I do accept paid compensation such as advertising and affiliate sales. When content/products are paid or sponsored it will be clearly identified. I will always give my honest opinion or experience on sponsored posts or advertisements regardless of compensation.
