Featuring Calgary mobile veterinarian Dr. Wendy McClelland and co-host Greg Habstritt from Vets To Go. This episode originally aired September 14th, 2014 on News Talk 770 AM.
Here’s what we covered in this week’s show:
This past week’s freak snowstorm was a not-so-gentle reminder from Mother Nature that winter is just around the corner .. and it’s time to be thinking about the gear you need to protect your pet when the cold weather, snow and ice settle in. This week, we’re joined by Mark Bewer from Unleashed, a specialty dog store in Calgary, to discuss some of the great products and gear that’s out there for you to protect your dog.
We also discuss a growing trend in the home veterinary care world — hospice care for pets. Not just for humans, hospice care is a growing service that allows pet owners to explore options when it comes to their pet being diagnosed with a terminal or incurable problem. Dr. Wendy discusses why hospice care may be a great option for someone with a pet that isn’t sure whether “it’s time” or not.
And as always, Dr. Wendy answers listener questions, which you can always submit at http://www.vetstogoradio.com.
