Here’s what we covered in this week’s show:

Until recently, Crown Prosecutors had limited educational resources available to help them prosecute animal abuse cases. The National Centre for the Prosecution of Animal Cruelty has been working hard behind the scenes to design and deliver training to the legal community and today we’re joined by Barbara Cartwright, CEO of the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies, to learn about the impact that this training is having on the legal system.

Plus, if you or someone you know needs financial assistance to have a cat spayed or neutered, a local Calgary organization might be able to help out. Debbie Nelson, Director of Operations for the MEOW Foundation joins us to talk about their Spay Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP) and how it’s helping to control the local homeless pet population.

As always, Dr. Wendy wraps up the hour answering you pet health questions!

Here’s what we covered in this week’s show:

If you’ve got a busy schedule or a dog that gets carsick or stressed out around other animals, a mobile groomer might be the solution you need to keep your dogs looking dapper! Today Erv Unger with Fetching Fido joins us to tell us about the mobile grooming service they offer for busy pet parents and how you can win a $100 gift certificate from them.

Plus, you’ve likely seen local pet stores offering “anaesthesia free” dental cleanings, but what you might not know about them could open your pet up to potential health issues. Veterinary Dental Specialist Dr. Terri Faber joins us to talk about these cleaning services and how they can affect your pet.

Dr. Wendy wraps up the hour with answers to your pet health questions!

If you’re a winter sports enthusiast with a high-energy dog, skijoring is a great way for you and your pooch to beat the winter doldrums! Local skijorer Jenn Ferguson joins us to teach us about this relatively unknown winter sport and what kind of training you and your pooch need to get started.

Plus, February is Spay/Neuter Awareness Month and Calgary is home to the Alberta Spay Neuter Task Force, which is one of Alberta’s amazing animal welfare groups dedicated to reducing pet overpopulation.
