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.

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.
