Behaviour Mythbusting Part 2; Dreaming Dogs; Prescribing Laws; Skewers; Rich Cats & Fat Rats – Episode 53



Hello and Welcome to Episode 53 of the Two Vets Talk Pets Podcast, where too much talking of pets if barely enough.

This week on the good ship HMS TVTP, Robbie ponders about dreaming dogs, and dogs that dream of eating chicken skewers, Lewis about cats that dream about inheriting fortunes, and a rat that dreamed that the gap in the man hole cover was a little bit bigger

We then talk about why vets have to be careful prescribing medications and why we have laws that dictate what we can and cant do, and then it’s time for some good, old fashioned, MYTH BUSTING!

This episode is proudly supported by Zylkene from Vetquinol – a safe way to help your dog or cat that may be stressed or have a mild anxiety – safe in the young, the old, the big and the small, in the Canine, or the Feline. Wouldn’t recommend in a sloth. they already pretty sedate. They could go into a calm coma. Like me, after a nice warm milk. Before bed. But then I have to wee. And I wake up. Thankfully…

This episode is also supported by Prime 100 Pet foods – Australian made, Single Protein source diets for dogs and cats! Huge range, lots of flavours, for lots of different life stages, and diseases – So many options, great diets, lots of variety, almost as many options as a pizza shop. Which I why we want then to make the TVTP Prime 100 Ham and Pineapple Diet. That’d be pretty neat. Probably not practicable. We’ll leave the Practicality to Prime 100.

If you’d like to support the show check out our page at Patreon, and sign up to one of the options, and get yourself or your bumper an awesome sticker, and check out the exclusive Patreon Dominance Q&A session we did it was pretty awesome!

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.

Tell us what pizza flavour you think would make a good dog food. Not meatlovers. Too easy. And nothing with onion. Or garlic. Or a Chocolate Dessert pizza. I wonder about a Crocodile and Tapioca Pizza… I might call Dominos…


Doggy Dementia, Anal Gland Abscesses, Stressed Pets At The Vets – Episode 19



Welcome listeners to episode 19 of the Two Vets Talk Pets Podcast!

We start off with our regular Chitty Chat, Robbie talks about a little dog who had a problem before coming in for her spey, Lewis and Robbie remember some funny plugs and things they have taken out of cats. Lewis talks about diving in the Galapagos Islands, and checking in with our old mate Thomas Hildebrandt who is up to his old tricks again, and Robbie asks Lewis whether it’s OK to laugh at YouTube videos with the kids (here’s the Video of the Cops and Robbers Dachshunds).

Into the meaty bit of the podcast, and Lewis has been looking into possible use of Stem Cells to help with Doggy Dementia.

Robbie has had a spate of Anal Gland Abscesses (cases at work, not his own), so they guys talk about causes, treatment options, and safety of surgery.

And finally Robbie talks about some successes he has had using Anxiety Reducing medications in stressed out pets to reduce their anxiety when then come in.

Food Guarding & Aggression, Diabetes – Part 1, Daytime Podcasting Fun! – Episode 14



With the Podcave basking in the tender glow of the winter afternoon sun, Lewis and Robbie meet up for some sneaky Saturday Podcast Action.

With Lewis avoiding having to go shoe shopping after surgery on his washing machine, and Robbie coming in from a busy Saturday morning consulting, we get into some fun times about dogs eating fish hooks, Lewis’s Cat Olive getting ready for her teeth to get cleaned, and a new friend of the show, Flowers Across Sydney , has joined the fight with protecting cats against lillies (check their blog HERE). We also have a the latest Megaoesophagus Update from the AVA.

Into the Meaty middle of the pod, Lewis has some great information and tips on Food Guarding and Aggression in dogs (including where he hides while trying to eat a Magnum to stop anyone taking it from him), while Robbie starts part one of Diabetes in Dogs and Cats – what is it, what signs you see, and how it’s diagnosed.

Also Lewis brings up Robbie’s sly day time Go-Karting escapades – it was all for a good cause…
