Helping Pets and People In Times of Crisis with Dr Katie Luke

Veterinary Vitals Podcast with Dena Goldstein is a hidden gem I just found. I love how her passion for people and their pets comes through in every episode. The acknowledgment of the need for help with people who consider their animals a member of the family during a crisis is a leap in the right direction. The bond between animal and their human has exponential mental and physical benefits that need resources in times of trial. Dena’s shows shed a light to areas we can focus efforts and resources ensuring the whole family can be cared for.

Insightful and educational

This podcast has a great hostess in Dena, who has a terrific rapport with her guests and keeps them talking. She doesn't shy away from discussing serious issues, such as the societal barriers for women and minorities seeking a career in the veterinary field. This is worth following!
