Featuring Calgary mobile veterinarian Dr. Wendy McClelland and co-host Greg Habstritt from Vets To Go. This episode originally aired September 20th, 2015 on News Talk 770 AM.
Here’s what we covered in this week’s show:
Recent research suggests that 50% of dogs over 10 years old and 30% of cats over 8 years old have mild to moderate arthritis. On today’s show Dr. Wendy discusses the most common treatments used to relieve arthritis pain, as well as some of the holistic and alternative therapy options available.
Plus, if you’ve ever dealt with the loss of a pet, you know quite how heartbreaking it can be. We’re joined by Registered Psychologist Jeannine Crofton to discuss the complex emotions associated with pet loss and how support groups can help you work through the grief.
Dr. Wendy wraps up the hour answering our listeners’ pet health questions.
