    Hidden Signs of Allergies (& How To Treat Them) with Vet Dermatologist, Dr Jennifer Schissler

    Hidden Signs of Allergies (& How To Treat Them) with Vet Dermatologist, Dr Jennifer Schissler

    Did you know that allergies are actually pretty common in dogs?
     
    Today's episode is all about dermatology, specifically allergies, which can have a huge impact on a dog's quality of life. 
     
    Allergies are incredibly common in dogs, but many owners don't realize that their dogs have them. It's something that we really want to get better at identifying, because when allergies are appropriately diagnosed and treated, dogs are significantly more comfortable, and you can make fewer trips to the vet. 
     
    Today’s special guest is Dr. Jennifer Schissler who is an assistant professor of dermatology at the Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine. 
     
    We will be covering how to learn about the signs of allergies as well as how to diagnose and treat them.

    Veterinary Radiology: Behind The Scenes with Dr. Chelsea Kunst

    Veterinary Radiology: Behind The Scenes with Dr. Chelsea Kunst

    Today I want to give the spotlight to radiologists!
     
    Radiologists tend to be behind the scenes in veterinary practice. Pet owners don’t really go to visit them, but they are a really important part of veterinary practice. 
     
    So let’s find out more about what they do and why they’re so important from board-certified veterinary radiologist, Dr. Chelsea Kunst. 
     
    Dr. Kunst practices tele-radiology at home with her three crazy dogs and performs ultrasounds for veterinary specialty hospitals near her home. 
     
    She is going to talk to us today about how we use radiologists, how they help us in our everyday practice, and best practices going into radiology.
     
    If you want to learn about what radiology can do for our pets, this will be a great episode to tune in to!

    Veterinary Nutrition: Cancer, Supplements, & Probiotics with Dr Jennifer Larsen (Part II)

    Veterinary Nutrition: Cancer, Supplements, & Probiotics with Dr Jennifer Larsen (Part II)

    Have you ever heard that kibble causes cancer? Or that certain foods can treat cancer? 
     
    Dr. Jennifer Larsen is back for part II of this series to help us separate fact from fiction as far as nutrition and cancer are concerned. 
     
    Dr. Larsen is a Board-Certified Veterinary Clinical Nutritionist at UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine.
     
    Last week we covered general nutrition, and this week we’re covering diets for cancer patients, supplements, as well as pre and probiotics. 
     
    This is Part II of a two-part nutrition series, so if you haven't listened to last week's episode, I would love for you to do that after you finish this one.
     
    As you probably know, the internet is quick to tell us that kibble causes cancer and that many canine diets can prevent cancer or help in cancer treatment. So the question is...is this true? That’s what we’re going to answer today.
     
    If you’ve been confused about what is and is not safe to feed your dog, be sure to tune in!

    Veterinary Nutrition: Separating Fact from Fiction with Dr. Jennifer Larsen (Part I)

    Veterinary Nutrition: Separating Fact from Fiction with Dr. Jennifer Larsen (Part I)

    If there's one question that most dog owners struggle with, it's “what should I feed my dog?” or “what is the best food out there?”
     
    Well, to help sift through the mayhem and bring us the facts is Dr. Jennifer Larsen. She can tell us what the science says vs. what we might think, or what a food company might want us to believe. 
     
    Dr. Larsen is a Board-Certified Veterinary Clinical Nutritionist at UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine.
     
    Luckily for us, she's going to be here for two episodes! In this episode we'll cover general nutrition, and next week we'll cover cancer supplements and pre/probiotics. Be sure to come back here next week to catch Part II. 
     
    I know you love your dog and want to feed your dog the best type of food, so we're going to clear up some misconceptions and find out a lot of really helpful information from Dr. Larsen today.

    Interventional Radiology: Hope For Dogs With Limited Options With Dr Bill Culp

    Interventional Radiology: Hope For Dogs With Limited Options With Dr Bill Culp

    How do you treat a dog when no options seem viable? For some of you, Dr. Bill Culp might have an answer. 
     
    His goal is to improve the quality of life and extend the life of his patients by discovering new ways to use interventional radiology. What am I talking about? Don’t worry, we’ll cover it all in today’s episode. 
     
    The cases that get referred to Dr. Culp are typically those that have had tumors that we just don't otherwise have a lot of hope for. The tumors are either too large for surgery, don't respond well to chemo, don’t respond well to radiation, or a combination of all three. 
     
    Dr. Culp is doing not only exciting, but also really important work. Today he is sharing the results of his work so far, his current clinical trials, and also talking about what he's most excited for in the next few years.
     
    Join us to find out what interventional radiology is and how it’s bringing hope to previously hopeless cases.

    Hemangiosarcoma - New Research & Hope For A Deadly Cancer with Dr. Erin Dickerson

    Hemangiosarcoma - New Research & Hope For A Deadly Cancer with Dr. Erin Dickerson

    Have you ever heard hemangiosarcoma referred to as a death sentence? Well, turns out that might not be entirely true. 
     
    Today’s guest, Dr. Erin Dickerson, is here to talk to us about her research into increasing the survival rate for dogs with hemangiosarcoma. And let me tell you, she makes the future look bright! 
     
    Hemangiosarcoma is cancer that commonly occurs in the spleen of dogs and unfortunately is usually diagnosed pretty late in the game. Even with treatment, it has a pretty poor prognosis of maybe four to six months with surgery and chemotherapy. I would love to be able to diagnose this disease earlier and have better treatment options for these patients.
     
    Today, Dr. Dickerson is going to talk to us about the latest developments, current trials, what the next few years might look like, and give us some hope for the future.
     
    Join us to find out how new research is bringing hope to dogs and owners facing a hemangiosarcoma diagnosis.

All the cancer podcasts

Proactive v Reactive

In addition to sharing high-quality information, Dr. Cesario promotes a proactive approach to dog health. She (and her guests) obviously care about the animals with which they work, but they are also sensitive to the realities of pet owners that typically don’t have the background knowledge, training, or financial means to attend to their pet’s health at high levels. This podcast will improve the lives of people and their pets.
