Zylkene, Kennel/Canine Cough, Puppy Castration, Cat Urine Problems, Live Export Update & Chinese Fake Zoo Animals – Ep 25



Hi podcast fans, and welcome to Episode 25 of the TWO VETS TALK PETS PODCAST, where to much talking of pets is barely enough.

This episode of TVTP podcast is brought to you by Zylkene from Vetquinol – talk to your vet to see if your stressed out pet could benefit from Zylkene.

Thanks as well to our fabulous Patreon supporters. If you’d like to help to support us in putting out the podcast, check out our Patreon page – choose a level you’d like to support us for. We thank you in advance!

In some house keeping – Robbie had some technical issues last week with putting up Rosie’s dental video on Youtube – well it’s up now, and the link is working, so check it out!

Lewis has had an odd week, with some nappy dumping issues, and gives an update on the Live Export and the latest press release regarding the companies involved.

Robbie talks about Chinese Zoo’s and the shenanigans they get up to in passing off animals that may not be as they are advertised after reading The Age’s Odd Spot. Tibetan Mastiff, and Penguins

and about some recurring urinary tract signs he has seen in cats in the last week (see previous talks on bladder disease in cats in previous episodes HERE)

Robbie then talks about Kennel Cough in Dogs – a really common, and really infectious cough in dogs.

We then return to the ASAV conference, with an interview with Anthea McClintock from Vetoquinol, and we talk about Zylkene.

Also we take a question from the Ukraine about whether it is a good idea to castrate a male dog.

Shark attacks, dogs & pancakes, Part 1 of cat urine problems (or FUS Puss) and ear infections – Episode 7



Lewis kicks off discussing the recent spate of shark attacks and the latest research on how to prevent surfers being attacked. Many options have been tried (and failed) in the past and Lewis and Robbie give you the current options, including Adam West Batman Shark Repellent Spray (patent pending). We are introduced to the term ‘Wettie Warmers’ in a feeble attempt by the guys not to revert to further toilet humour.

Robbie opens up his new segment entitled ‘Community Service Announcement’ where he highlights the risk of leaving freshly made pancakes on the stove, when you have dogs. In short – don’t do this (but listen to learn why…).

Part 1 of a three part series on cat urination problems is cracked. Part 1 discusses the medical causes of feline urination problems, how to know when your cat has problem, when is it an emergency and what you should do to prevent and treat it. The guys discuss ‘bedside sampling’ as a means of collecting a urine sample. Stay tuned for Part 2 next week.

Ear infections in dogs are common and this is their final topic for the podcast. Diagnosis, treatment and prevention are the main focus but somehow the boys manage to include a shameless beg for a major multinational sponsor to keep the podcast afloat. The boys are now checking their email every 10 minutes in a vain hope……
