Dog Bites, Placebos, FIV and NEWS NEWS NEWS – Ep 22



Hey there TVTP fans, and welcome to Episode 22 of the Two Vets Talk Pets Podcast.

We’re back face to face, and loosened up with some of the Mountain Goat Brewery’s finest, for some fine afternoon podcasting.

Lewis has some tips for people getting bugged by their cats demanding food (using cat feeders with timers, like this one). Robbie has had 2 cases of FIV in the last week, and asks cat owners to check with their vets to see if their cats need protection. Lewis finds an article finding a possible link to grain free food to heart disease in dogs. Robbie finds out about the celebrity face of Neuticles. 

Lewis finds an inappropriately coloured needle in a Botox ad (See below!), Robbie talks about jogging with dogs, and Lewis talks about Lassie.

After another stunning rendition of the disclaimer from April (fresh from her successful audition for her year 4 school play), Lewis runs a fine tooth comb through the latest edition of the Journal of Veterinary Behaviour. We talk about a very interesting article outlining risk factors of dog bites in France, and a really interesting article looking at the magical effects of Placebo.

Finally we crack open the mailbag and think about whether cats are getting enough water.

Love your vet, vet fees, older pets, licking feet, Dr Sally FeelGood Cockburn & dog bites – Episode 11



Robbie has had a rough week at work and talks seriously about trusting your vet. Vets are under a lot of pressure at times to provide a diagnosis and treat any pet’s problem, often when owners do not have a lot of money for tests – so take it easy on your vet.

Robbie and Lewis realise they come from different sides of the track when they are confused about the childish words on an upside down calculator.

Dr Feelgood AKA Sally Cockburn collapsed from blood clot in lungs and was miraculously saved by her Shitzu Cavalier cross dog. Robbie and Lewis are slightly skeptical of her dog’s intentions.

Robbie gives us the top tips to looking after your older pet and knowing if there is a problem. Lewis talks about the Guinness Book of Records for the oldest dog and the guys get some dubious tips from social media to looking after your older pet. We learn that Robbie has treated a cat that was older than him.

A child being bitten by a dog is in the news again and Lewis tackles the topic to give listeners the facts.

Mailbag discusses fluffy white dogs who have dark-brown, stained feet all the time. What is it? Listen to find out!
