Thunderstorm Phobias, Quality Of Life, Bordello Vaccine? Biting Wombats, Paws for a Purpose & Pets in the Park, Euthanasia – Ep 26

What’s that sound? It’s Episode 26 of the Two Vets Talk Pets Podcast, where too much talking of pets is barely enough!

In this weeks podcast, Lewis talks about someone requesting a Bordello Vaccine and a biting wombat, Robbie talks about a case of a bursting spleen, and an article about why dogs like to have their heads out the windows of cars.

We head back to the recent Australian Small Animal Veterinarian Conference recordings, where we talk to Dr Mark Kelman, about 2 awesome charities – Paws for a Purpose, and Pets in the Park 

Robbie then talks about “Quality of Life” – a difficult question that owners often ask vets about when their pets are approaching the ends of their lives, and decisions about euthanasia are being made. It’s a complex topic, and the guys try to shed some light on what things they look for when trying to make recommendations.

Lewis then brings the Thunder! Thunderstorm Phobias are another really common issue we come across. Lewis lines up what happens, common signs, and some tips and treatments to help.

Thanks for reading down to here. It’s late, and I should be getting to bed.

But I will write this in – when I feel sad, I pat a nice animal, and it makes me feel better. Other people, especially people who get angry, should do it too. Unless you are allergic. Don’t pat an animal if you have an allergy. Especially if you are already angry. Angry people with allergies can be a real pain in the bum…
