With a distance of most of this fine southern continent between them, Lewis has lovingly complied some of the highlights of the previous 6 months worth of episodes.

So sit back, and let the nostalgia wash over you, as we look back at how far the boys have come…

Charlie Pickering,

Dating with dogs,

Lost pigeon,

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.

Reach out and get in touch with us on   Instagram , Facebook or Twitter.

If you have any questions, comments, or any nice recipes, let us know. Especially a nice pastry recipe. Lewis loves pastries…

 

 

 


Dr Sam Snelling, Specialist Surgeon; Heart Murmurs; Red Moons and Crazy Pets – Ep 21



Strap in TVTP fans, here is Episode 21 for your listening enjoyment!

Join us for our first foray into “Long Distance” Podcasting, as after a busy day Go Karting and Laser Tagging (Lewis) and Fun Running (Robbie), the tyranny of distance is no match for the power of podcasting!

Dr Robbie talks about some pet tips for helping to get your pets into bed, Dr Lewis talks about the recent Red Moon we’ve had in Melbourne, and some “interesting” facts about the effects of the full moon on pets (and people)! We also talk about the Love Your Pet, Love Your Vet Campaign, and Lewis’s Mentoring of New Graduate Vets.

In our Second Part of our road trip, we are joined by Dr Sam Snelling, Specialist Veterinary Surgeon and Director at Advanced Vet Care in Kensington. We talk about what got him excited about surgery, and as a special for our Dachshund listeners, we talk about spinal problems that can require surgery.

We then discuss Heart Murmurs – what they are, what they mean, and what needs to be done.

Eye specialist, Dr Simon Hurn, Home Eye Care & Treatment & Anti-inflammatories – Episode 20



Welcome back TVTP fans to your favourite Vets and Pets podcast – Two Vets Talk Pets! And welcome to our listeners in the Cook Islands! Here is Episode 20 – fresh, and ready for your ears!

And we’ve got a special treat for you – our first road trip! And getting to see the awesome TVTP T-Shirts that Lewis got made up.

But first, Lewis laments about Ice Skating, and tells Robbie about a Barn Owl and Possum that came into work.

Robbie fell into an internet hole chasing a story about dogs using facial expressions to increase their chances of being adopted, but how it doesn’t work for cats, and how this may have been an evolutionary advantage in the domestication of dogs by humans.

We are then joined by our first guest Dr Simon Hurn, a Specialist Vet Ophthalmologist from All Animal Eye Services in Melbourne. Our podcasters head to Advanced Vetcare in Kensington on their first TVTP road trip to ask Simon about how he got into eyes, what to look for with problems for your pets eyes at home, and about cloudy eyes in older dogs. And about low clearance and how damaging it can be for bikes on car roofs…

Robbie then brings things home with talking about Anti-Inflammatories – what are they, how they work, and are they safe?

Arthritis, Toenail Trimming, Drinking Too Much Water & Toxic Plants – Episode 18



Hey TVTP fans, welcome to episode 18 of your favourite Pets and Vets podcast!

We start things off with some Chitty Chat Chat about the number of arthritic dogs and cats that Robbie is seeing, who are struggling with the cold Melbourne winter. Lewis laments over AFL retirements and getting ignored by supermodels. Robbie talks about his whippet Rosie who had a dental recently (videos to come!), and a bizarre experience with a bird flying through a car window at speed. And Lewis finds out some info about a possible treatment for Diabetes coming from Australia’s own Franken-Duck!

We rock into podcast proper, Lewis runs through the in’s and out’s of trimming nails, with tips to try and get the nails short, without hitting the bleedy sore bit of the quick.

Robbie talks about Polydipsia, or drinking too much. Including how much is too much.

  •        Normal Drinking 40-50ml water per Kilogram per day (ie 10kg Dog drinking 400-500ml per day)
  •        Too Much Drinking 90-100ml water per Kilogram per day (ie 10kg Dog Drinking 900-1000ml per day)
