For this episode, Lewis and Robbie take a leaf out of the play book of any self respecting pop icon (we are looking at you Justin B), and are taking the opportunity to release a Best Of – just when no one was asking or looking for it, and early into the “bands” recording career!

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…

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.

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?

Ep 18 Two Vets Talk Pets Podcast

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)

And Mailbag brings a question about advice with cats trying to chew plants inside.

Anaesthetic Free Dentals, Cat Trips to the Vet, Dogs & Human Emotions, Cane Toad Sausages? – Episode 17



Welcome Podcast fans to Episode 17 of the Two Vets Talk Pets podcast, where too much talk of pets is barely enough (this is in humble deference to Roy and HG – doyens of irreverent Australian Entertainment)!

What an episode we have for your ear buds this week!

Lewis and Robbie get some Chitty Chat Chat going hard and fast with a Study looking at dogs responses to the 6 human emotions, the oldest cat in the UK , Robbie and Lewis’s take on Cat Collars, and a sneaky way of trying to stop snatchy dogs taking treats, and delve into the world of Cane Toad Sausages!

Into the Podcast proper, and we discuss the hot button topic of Anaesthetic Free Dentals – we look at it from our perspective as vets and explain our opinions, from a dental health, and behavioural view point.

Lewis reports in on his cat Olive, who had another trip into the clinic for a microchip, and what she was like without the medications that Lewis used previously before her dental.

And Lewis and Robbie talk about their Purrfect Cat Carriers, and how to try and make your pet’s trip to the vet as easy and stress free, for everyone, as possible.

As always we like to hear your feedback (and after the Anaesthetic Free Dental talk – there may be quite a bit!) – so reach out and get in touch on all the cool social medias (and some of the uncool ones too – not myspace though – this isn’t 2003…).

Lewis’s daughter April shows Robbie how to really do a disclaimer.

Lewis then delivers some serious  Podcast GOLD with his second part of Separation Anxiety – is your dog showing the tell tale signs? And how can you do something about it.

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…
