Great listen

I look forward to the monthly drops of the Ask the Vet podcast. Dr. Holhenhaus is an animal nerd in the best possible way, her enthusiasm about animals and veterinary science is infectious. She brings on great guests with diverse areas of experience and also shares fun animal news highlights. I loved hearing about dentistry on big cats; and I wished the conversation with the Pekingese breeder and competitive show handler was longer, honestly, to discuss the ethics of breeding since puppy mills are a controversial topic right now.

Two of our dogs have been patients at AMC, and it’s truly an amazing place with fantastic vets, technicians and staff. I love the free outreach they do in the form of this podcast and the ongoing Usdan webinar series on different veterinary topics for laypeople.

Great info for animal owners!

Have listened on SiriusXM radio for several years. Ann Hohenhouse is a well educated Vet.
