Featuring Calgary mobile veterinarian Dr. Wendy McClelland and co-host Greg Habstritt from Vets To Go. This episode originally aired June 8th, 2014 on News Talk 770 AM.
Here’s what we covered in this week’s show:
Anyone who owns a cat or dog knows that animals have so much to teach us, and sometimes the best thing we can do is allow them to do what they do naturally – and when we do, the results are often amazing.
This week, we’re going to speak to a fascinating dog lover from Canmore who specializes in tracking techniques from his search and rescue background. Frans Baars from “On The Trail” runs programs that allow dog owners to train their dogs to use their noses for games, and he combines this with agility and leadership development. It’s a very unique concept, and one that allows dogs to do have fun doing what they naturally like to do – use their noses to solve problems.
Another topic we’ll look at is vaccinations – they’ve become a major story in the media, especially when celebrities like Jenny McCarthy get involved in the conversation about the suggested risks and dangers of vaccinations.
A lot of pet owners have similar concerns when it comes to their pets – specifically, over-vaccinating. This week, we look closer at the subject of vaccinations and the concept of titre (pronounced ‘tighter’) – what they are, how they work, and whether they’re something you should consider instead of annual vaccination.
And as always, we’ll have questions with Dr. Wendy in our “Ask The Vet” segment!
