    The Pet Doctor - Episode 291 The Shot Felt Round the World

    The Pet Doctor - Episode 291 The Shot Felt Round the World

    Did you realize that by merely vaccinating your dog or cat you could save the lives of over 55,000 impoverished people, the majority of them being children on an annual basis? That is one person every ten minutes. These deaths come from a wholly preventable disease-canine rabies. Rabies is a viral disease that has been virtually eradicated from our domesticated pets in the United States because of a robust vaccination program but still ravages people, pets and wildlife in many areas globally.

    My guest is Dr. Robert Duquette, an Associate Director of Veterinary Professional Services for Merck Animal Health. We are going to discuss how a routine rabies vaccine for your pet can be the lifesaving shot that is felt around the world.

    The Pet Doctor - Episode 290 Stop Eat First, Sick Later with an App

    It’s a feeling…eyes boring into your very soul. You are helpless. You are compelled to follow the commands that are flooding into your consciousness. Your hand trembles as you reach for something that could have dire consequences. Who is controlling your actions? Some nefarious predator? No. It is your cat or dog is trying to con you out of something from your plate. A little bit won’t hurt…or will it? Maybe your pet isn’t feeling well and you want to avoid a trip to the veterinarians…if you take something when you have the same symptoms, why not give it to your pet? A little bit won’t hurt…or will it?

    Now there is an app that is easy to use, reliable and answers your questions about what you can and shouldn’t give your pet. It was created by my guest, veterinarian Dr. Mari Delaney.

    The Pet Doctor - Episode 289 The Heartbreak of Heartworms

    The Pet Doctor - Episode 289 The Heartbreak of Heartworms

    What do Overland Park, Kansas, the California cities of San Francisco, Thousand Oaks, Salinas and Oceanside, along with Laredo, Texas, Clarksville, Tennessee, Portland, Oregon Providence, Rhode Island and Jersey City, New Jersey have in common? They share the dubious honor of being named earlier this year, the top 10 cities in the United States with the highest percentage increases in positive heartworm tests in our companion pets.

    This mosquito-borne disease can be deadly to cats and dogs. And it's one hundred percent preventable. But what if you don't live in one of these areas? What if your pet is totally indoors? What if you've never seen mosquitoes? Do you still have to worry? My guest today is an expert in veterinary parasitology and has had first-hand experience in the devastating effects that this disease can have on our pets. Dr. Cassan Pulaski has a masters of preventive health and is a doctor of veterinary medicine. She's a member of the Board of the Companion Animal Parasite Council, a post doctorate research and teaching associate at the University of Georgia, and director of the parasitology section of the Athens Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory. She knows what she's talking about. And we'll be chatting with her this week. Tune in!

    The Pet Doctor - Episode 288 Love is Just the Start

    The Pet Doctor - Episode 288 Love is Just the Start

    If you have a pet, most likely you love it a lot. You buy the best food you can afford. You give it lots of treats….in fact if you were to admit it, it is a bit pudgy. Your pet has a toybox full of goodies. It has a plethora of clothes and collars. When you are away at work…and you are away a lot, you have a pet nanny cam so you can look in on it. You visit your vet whenever it is ill … and it hates going there. You try to play with it a couple times a week. All in all, you are a pretty good pet parent. This is all marvelous but are you truly doing all you can?

    Most pet parents sincerely care but sometimes they don’t know what they don’t know and that can have detrimental effects on the pet’s quality and quantity of life. Now you can obtain reputable, reliable pet physical and mental health information on any of your devices and much of it is free!

    My guest is Steve Dale. He is a friend, a certified animal behavior consultant, a journalist, host of two nationally syndicated radio, special contributor at WGN Radio in Chicago and for 21 years wrote on pet matters for the Chicago Tribune. You may have read his work in USA Weekend, Cat Fancy and more. He has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show, National Geographic Explore, Fox News and a plethora of various Animal Planet shows.

    The Pet Doctor - Episode 287 Canine Infectious Disease Complex…Not Your Grandma’s Kennel Cough

    The Pet Doctor - Episode 287 Canine Infectious Disease Complex…Not Your Grandma’s Kennel Cough

    We often call our dogs our fur babies. More and more we are shuttling them from play days at doggie day camp or heading to the dog park where they can romp with their friends and get their ya yas out of their systems. They often are treated to time at the spa for a day of beauty and grooming more often than we afford ourselves the same luxury. But even if your dog is a home body and only goes for a spin around the block, it could be exposed to infectious diseases that can lead to nasty respiratory disease symptoms. Maybe you have heard of canine flu on the news. Is it kennel cough or this newfangled condition called canine infectious disease complex (now that name is nothing to cough at). Can you catch it from your dog? What can you do to protect your pet?

    To discuss all these questions is Dr. Karen Stasiak. She is the Veterinary Medical Lead for Biologicals with Zoetis Petcare.
