This week Lewis has been playing with a Penguin that was rescued and brought into his work. Robbie was seeing incredibly large dogs down at the beach, and Lewis has received some right royal correspondence. 

Lewis also has some news about a dog running a half marathon instead of going to the toilet. Robbie found out about a great new game for all the boys and girls, who like to pat dogs, and get wet. Then Lewis has found an odd story about a lady that has some odd injuries, from a goat.

And watch out for Valentines day. 

There has been a recall on some Hills Canned Dog Food – read the media release here. Robbie then gives a run through in why too much Vitamin D is not a good thing. 

Lewis then delves into the reason to why horse trainers may ALLEGEDLY use electrical shock devices when trying to train horses. Boo Hiss…

If you have any questions you’d like to ask Lewis and Robbie send us an email at twovetstalkpets@gmail.com, or you can contact us or find us on  InstagramTwitter, or Facebook.

Otherwise, have an awesome day. 

I’m still not sure anyone actually reads down to this part…


URGENT Extra Episode – Hill’s Dog Food Recall



Hill’s Pet Nutrition Voluntarily Recalls Select Canned Dog Food for Excessive Vitamin D

Hill’s Pet Nutrition is voluntarily recalling select canned dog food products due to potentially elevated levels of vitamin D. While vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs, ingestion of elevated levels can lead to potential health issues depending on the level of vitamin D and the length of exposure, and dogs may exhibit symptoms such as vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, and weight loss. Vitamin D, when consumed at very high levels, can lead to serious health issues in dogs including renal dysfunction. Pet parents with dogs who have consumed any of the products listed and are exhibiting any of these signs should contact their veterinarian. In most cases, complete recovery is expected after discontinuation of feeding.

The affected canned dog foods were distributed through retail pet stores, veterinary clinics and e-retailers nationwide in Australia. No dry foods, cat foods, or treats are affected.

Pet parents who purchased the product with the specific lot/date codes listed should discontinue feeding and dispose of those products immediately. To have discarded products replaced at no cost, please contact the pet shop, e-Retailer or veterinary clinics where you purchased the product of specific lot/date code, or, contact Hill’s via our website or at 1800 679 932.

Hill’s Pet Nutrition learned of the potential for elevated vitamin D levels in some of our canned dog foods after receiving a complaint in the United States about a dog exhibiting signs of elevated vitamin D levels. Our investigation confirmed elevated levels of vitamin D due to a supplier error.

We care deeply about all pets and are committed to providing pet parents with safe and high quality products. Hill’s has identified and isolated the error and, to prevent this from happening again, we have required our supplier to implement additional quality testing prior to their release of ingredients. In addition to our existing safety processes, we are adding our own further testing of incoming ingredients.

For further information, please contact Hill’s Pet Nutrition Pty Ltd. at 1800 679 932 Monday-Friday during the hours of 9am-5pm (AEST) or at HillshelplineANZ@hillspet.com. Information can also be found at www.hillspet.com.au/productlist

This voluntary recall is not applicable in all countries. If you are outside of Australia please check your own country’s Hill’s website for more information.

This week Lewis talks about a new food recall for dogs, then we rock into our awesome interview with Dr Clint Yudelman, Internal Medicine Specialist, from  Insight Mobile Veterinary Diagnostics (also on Facebook)

We have a great chat with Clint, covering all sorts of topics gut related, from how much vomiting is too much, what is Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Diagnostic options to investigate abdominal problems, Pancreatitis, and Clint’s early media career as the part of the Runner up team “My Cousin Pescatore” in Season 1 of My Kitchen Rules.

In the interview, we talk about Novel Protein diets, and the one we talk a lot about is Prime 100’s Crocodile and Tapioca food.

It was an awesome, in-depth look into lots of the common clinical signs we see every day in practice, and that clients often see in their pets.

If your pet is vomiting or has diarrhoea, don’t ignore it. It’s not fun to clean up, and it’s not fun for them to do. Unless they don’t like you. We can help Inflammatory Bowel Disease. We can’t do much if your pets are doing it because they don’t like you. Maybe be nicer to them. Buy them something nice. Like flowers. Unless the flowers have lillies, and you have a cat. That would not be cool at all…
