Why vaccinate? Vaccine reactions & titre tests, Colour blindness, Mother’s Day & Lewis swaps his rubber gloves for leather – Episode 10



With Mother’s Day just passed on the weekend Lewis has an encounter with a room full of ladies who had enjoyed a Long Mother’s Day Lunch.

Robbie discusses colour blindness in dogs and cats and realises that his research may have come up short when he can’t quite answer how Guide Dogs know when the little green man at the traffic lights say it is safe to cross.

Lewis gets upset with some random Facebook post about dog’s getting Autism from vaccines and the guys then discuss in detail the reasons as to why we continue to vaccinate our pets and the long and short term side effects that may or may not be seen. (Spoiler alert: dogs (and humans) don’t get Autism from vaccines)

Robbie can be seen blushing heavily on the podcast as Charlie Pickering allegedly finally makes contact via an encrypted mailbag.

Robbie’s date with Charlie Pickering, lumps & bumps, Part 3 of weeing cats and a pregnant woman rescues a dog from the sea – Episode 9



It’s late at night in the podcave and the two Supervets are still struggling to get their heads around the new microphones and have been giggling like school boys try not to make each other echo when they talk.

Lewis talks about his regularly ‘boys steak night’ with some heavy-hitters of the veterinary industry and Robbie ponders how Lewis managed to get an invite…

Lewis’ highlight of the week is a dog that was rescued by a pregnant lady who swam 200 metres off shore to stop him from drowning – not all heroes wear capes.

In the same vein, a cape-less Robbie chases Puffing Billy and then narrates a modern tragedy called ‘when a podcast vet locks eyes with an uber celebrity’. Robbie shares his encounter with TV celebrity Charlie Pickering and his promise to the podcast listeners.

Robbie then dives into the more vet related topic of lumps and bumps on your pet and pulls no punches with questions such as; Does size really matter?; How do you know if that lump is nasty?; What should I do if I find a lump on my pet?; Is every lump cancerous? What will the vet do when they examine the lump? Is it better to have the lump examined or just ignore it?

Lewis then launches in to Part 3 of cats urinating outside the litter tray – problems a cat may have with the litter tray or litter substance or the location. Robbie coins the phrase ‘litter buffet’ and gives us some further insights into poor Melvin, his over-grooming, urine spraying and toilet missing house cat.
