Podcast – Going to the Dog Park – Is It A Good Idea for You and Your Dog?

< Click to Listen to Podcast >

In this episode of The Woof Meow Show from April 6th, 2019, Don and Kate discuss how dog parks can be a great outlet for many dogs, but how they can also create behavioral problems for some dogs. They are not always a good choice for dogs, especially dogs that are in any way reactive towards people or other dogs. Kate and Don also discuss the characteristics that make a dog likely to enjoy the dog park experience as well as temperament traits that indicate a dog should avoid the dog park. The show is a companion to Don’s article in the April edition of the Downeast Dog News and on his blog, Words-Woofs-Meows.com [ FMIhttp://bit.ly/GoingToTheDogPark ]. The show is also a preview to two presentations Don will be giving on dog parks in May of 2019, that will provide attendees with information that will help them make their trip to the dog park fun for both them and their dog. You can find details on these presentations at http://bit.ly/Blog-UpcomingEvents

Podcast – Spaying and Neutering Your Pet with Dr. Mark Hanks from Kindred Spirits Veterinary Clinic

< Click to Listen to Podcast >

< A short link to this article http://bit.ly/WfMw-Spay-Neuther2019 >

Spay and Neuter Awareness Month starts on February 1st. Because this is such an important topic, we do a show on it every year. Ten years ago, the decision of whether to spay and neuter and when to do so was much more straightforward. As new information has become available spaying and neutering has gotten a bit more confusing, especially the timing of spaying and neutering. Don has been known to say that if you ask five pet care professionals about spaying and neutering, you may get seven different opinions. Spaying and neutering have implications for animal welfare as well as physical and behavioral health, and it is a topic that every pet owner needs to discuss with their veterinarian. Today, Don will be talking to Dr. Mark Hanks from the Kindred Spirits Veterinary Clinic to help end some of the confusion of this critical topic. If you have a pet that is not spayed or neutered, you will not want to miss this show.

Podcast – Dental Care for Pets 2019 with Dr. Katie Carter – 26JAN19

< A Short Link to this page – http://bit.ly/WfMw-PetDental2019 >

< Click to Listen to Podcast >

In this episode of The Woof Meow Show from January 26th, 2019 Don interviews Dr. Katie Carter from River Road Veterinary Hospital about pet dental care and the importance of preventing and treating periodontal disease in your pet. Chronic inflammation or an infection in your pet’s mouth, gingivitis, is every bit as serious as an infection anywhere else. When left untreated, periodontal disease can spread bacteria to the liver, the kidneys, the heart, and even the nervous system.

During the show, Dr. Carter describes a typical dental exam and the teeth cleaning process. She explains why a dental for our pets is done under general anesthesia and the many steps a veterinarian takes to make sure that process is as safe as possible for every pet. We also discuss preventative care for dental health and breeds that are more susceptible to periodontal disease.

Learn how you can improve your pet’s life by taking care of their mouth!
