Featuring Calgary mobile veterinarian Dr. Wendy McClelland and co-host Greg Habstritt from Vets To Go. This episode originally aired February 1st, 2015 on News Talk 770 AM.
Here’s what we covered in this week’s show:
Animal abuse and neglect has been in the headlines a lot this past week. Earlier this week, the announcement of more than 200 dogs being seized from a farm in southern Alberta outraged our community. Today Barbara Cartwright with the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies joins us to discuss their new nation-wide Crown Prosecutor resource program, and how this program can help improve consistency and outcomes in animal cruelty prosecution cases.
Plus, if you love to travel but your pet prefers to stay home, a pet sitter might be a good option to explore for your next vacation. Angela Laws with TrustedHouseSitters.com join us to share how their website can connect animal lovers with pet guardians looking for care.
As always, we’ll wrap up the hour with Dr. Wendy taking your pet questions.
