    Episode 22: CBD Vets Australia

    Episode 22: CBD Vets Australia

    In this episode, I had the privilege of speaking with Dr Christopher Lee, Veterinary Director of CBD Vets Australia.







    No pet parent wants to see their beloved pet suffering from conditions such as chronic pain or anxiety where conventional treatments have fallen short, and that's where CBD Vets Australia comes in. As part of Australia’s leading medicinal cannabis network, CBD Vets Australia recognises the potential that medical cannabis therapies provide as an alternative or adjunct treatment option, and as such, have developed research and training programs to assist Australia’s veterinarians in accessing CBD treatments for their pet patients.







    So tune-in to learn all about what CBD is, how CBD differs from hemp seed oil, what conditions are best suited to the use of CBD, potential side effects and the importance of only buying pharmaceutical-grade CBD from a reputable source.







    Visit the CBD Vets Australia website HERE for more information about who they are and how you can access medicinal CBD oil for your pet.

    Episode 21: The link between diet and behaviour in dogs

    Episode 21: The link between diet and behaviour in dogs

    Although cliche, we are what we eat! Fundamentally, what impacts mood and drives behaviour are biochemical processes in the body. And what drives these biochemical processes are the nutrients that come in from the foods we feed our dog’s day in and day out. 







    In this episode, I talk about the role that diet and nutrition play in the behaviour of our dogs, as well as outlining some simple strategies that all pet owners can implement in order to improve the nutritional profile of a standard commercial kibble diet.







    Lots of food for thought!

    Episode 20: What happened to Ladybug – Part 2!

    Episode 20: What happened to Ladybug – Part 2!

    Like most dog health emergencies, Ladybug's most recent drama started early on Sunday morning with repeated bouts of vomiting. This soon led to lots of blood tests, x-rays, emergency surgery and a weeks stay at the vets. So what happened to Ladybug????







    In this episode, I share Ladybug's most recent misadventure and use it as a case study for what you can do with your dog from a diet and supplement standpoint to optimise recovery from surgery and pancreatitis.

    Episode 18: The safety of raw vs kibble

    Episode 18: The safety of raw vs kibble

    What we feed our dogs is often a touchy subject that can elicit some very strong opinions. There are those that claim raw food feeding is incredibly dangerous to both our pets and us, and then there are those that claim the exact same thing about kibble!! So in this episode I look at the safety aspects of both raw and kibble, with a focus on the risks to pet owners themselves.







    This is a massive topic, and although we're really only scratching the surface of the situation, I think you'll be surprised to hear where the greatest risks lie. So sit back and relax and enjoy the show!

    Episode 17: Turmeric vs Curcumin

    Episode 17: Turmeric vs Curcumin

    In this episode I talk about turmeric – or more specifically, the differences between turmeric and curcumin. The two terms are often used interchangeably, which is not accurate, and by the end of the show you'll understand why!







    You'll also learn why many of the turmeric supplements on the market may not be providing the therapeutic benefit that you're wanting and needing, and what to look for when buying a supplement for yourself or your pet.







    So if you're curious to learn more about all things turmeric, then this is a great show for you.

Phenomenal, Bite-Sized, Actionable Information

I can’t recommend this podcast enough for anybody interested in improving health of their dogs or their own selves. Unlike other health-related sources where you’re left feeling overwhelmed and paralyzed by information overload, Narelle’s podcast empowers you with short episodes detailing the “why” and “how” of each topic. She uses easy-to-understand analogies to help remember the tough “science-y” bits of information and her accent, co-host Glenn, and interesting topics add to the overall approachability of the entire podcast!
