Warts! Imaging! Vomiting! – When to Panic! All the news that’s fit to print! – Episode 13



This week our heroes talk about Lewis’ bird week, and he has some great stories about Swans in UK and Mourning Magpies, while Robbie has trawled through the news for some tid bits of animal oddities.

Into Pod proper, and we talk about warts – common skin lumps in dogs, young ones, old ones, big ones and small ones. Are they bad? Will they go away? Will they take over the world?

We talk about some of the testing we can do as vets, using X-Rays, Ultrasound, CT scans, and MRI scans – how they work, what they are used for, what they help us see, and why do they cost so much?

Finally, we talk about vomiting, and when to panic! Vomiting is a really common sign we see in dogs and cats, but when do you need to get your pet seen, and when can you play it cool – listen in to find out more!

We please to aim, and aim to please…so we would love to know what you think of the show, or if you have questions please find us here Facebook , Instagram or Twitter.

Lewis’ new job, live export of sheep, birds attacking dogs & jealousy in dogs – Episode 6



The Commonwealth Games are done and dusted and Lewis commences a new vet job. He shares the joys of consultations with young children present and looking like a fool in an unfamiliar clinic. Robbie gives his tips on discussing core strength in awkward situations.

Following the airing of the disturbing TV segment about the live export of sheep on 60 Minutes, the guys delve deeply into the topic. It is a sensitive issue but Lewis and Robbie don’t shy away from pulling the punches and calling for change.

‘When birds attack’ is Robbie’s next segment closely followed by ‘the inflatable pool flamingo is your best friend’ as he discusses some recent disturbing attacks on dogs by large birds of prey.

The mailbag is cracked and Lewis dives into the topic of jealousy in dogs – does it really exist? – you’ll just have to listen to find out.

As usual, the two vets would love to know what you think of the show or ask any questions please find us in the Yellow Pages, on MySpace, Facebook , Instagram or Twitter. Or send us an email twovetstalkpets@gmail.com
