Featuring Calgary mobile veterinarian Dr. Wendy McClelland and co-host Greg Habstritt from Vets To Go. This episode originally aired November 16th, 2014 on News Talk 770 AM.
Here’s what we covered in this week’s show:
Every year thousands of homeless pets living on First Nations reserves find their way to animals shelters. A large part of the population is a result of pets that weren’t spayed or neutered. Fortunately, The Alberta Spay & Neuter Task Force is helping solve the problem of overpopulation by bringing free spay and neuter clinics to reserves and rural communities across Alberta. We’re chatting today with R.J. Bailot to learn about their health clinics and the impact they’re having on Alberta pets.
Plus, Dr. Jane Goodall is one of the most respected and accomplished members of the international scientific community. She has contributed immeasurably to our understanding of animal behaviours and the importance of compassion for all species and has inspired countless citizens to make a difference in our world. Andria Teather, CEO of the Jane Goodall Institute Canada, is our special guest today to discuss the Roots & Shoots program kickoff in Calgary, Dr. Goodall’s Legacy, and her visit to Calgary in April 2014.
As always, Dr. Wendy takes your pet questions!
