Buuboons ,

Thanks

Top Aussie pet podcast, full of info & great talks the two guys would pass as Abbott & Costello only that they are vets !!! Great work guys have learnt a lot .

CCB and Kain the whippet ,

The BEST and ONLY podcast you need for all pet owners: entertaining, trustworthy and informative

Thanks so much Dr Robbie and Dr Lewis!! Your podcast is a must-listen for every pet owner: Informative, entertaining and trustworthy. As for my particular issue, I laughed and laughed at the idea of Hugo my 7 year-old on a harness with his peanut butter kong!! It might keep him focused on his home learning too!! On a serious note, I’m also pleased to report that Kain the whippet is doing really well. The best thing we did was buy a crate. His previous owner had crate trained him already and he has slept in one since he was a pup but I initially thought it was a bit mean... but he loves it! We got a big one and leave the door open and have a memory foam mattress in it with blankets and toys and it’s his den where he can escape and feel safe. We’ve covered the top and sides with a blanket too so it really is like a cave. And we’ve embraced the treats! Hugo literally rains treats and it’s completely flipped Kain’s view of Hugo. Plus Hugo feeds him his dinner and has a go of holding the lead. So far so good!! I’ll look into zylkene too to further ease Kain into our loving but slightly wild family! Thanks for your help and support - it’s completely changed what could have been a really tricky situation and I’m so incredibly grateful.

PipnKassie ,

Another great episode!!

This is my favourite podcast - Drs Robbie and Lewis are great at delivering useful information in an easy to understand way and they are entertaining too! Yet another reason to look forward to Friday’s when new episodes drop! Highly recommend every pet owner (and anyone remotely interested in animals) has a listen!
