Easter Epsiode (57) – Puppy School & Socialisation; Chocolate Toxicity; Lily Flowers & Cats; Pancreatitis; Xylitol Toxicity



Hello and welcome to our special Easter Episode of the Two Vets Talk Pets Podcast, also known as episode 57, where too much talking of pets is barely enough.

And where too much chocolate for vets barely enough!

In this weeks episode, the guys get stuck into some Wikipedia email, and Robbie has made himself sick from eating too much dark chocolate.

Lewis talks about how important Puppy Socialisation is, despite advice from a dog trainer that says not to do it. Lewis also has an update on Hugo the Tortoise looking for love, and Robbie has had a complaint about his hand size.

Into the Pod proper and we go crazy on all the things that can cause problems for your pets this Easter – with reminders about the big ticket items like Chocolate Toxicity, Lilly Toxicity with Cats, Xylitol (Artificial Sweetener) Poisoning, Sultanas, and the good old Pancreatitis Boogy Man from eating fatty food.

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. If your pet is getting stressed worrying about why Easter involves a magic rabbit that delivers Chocolate eggs in the night, and why some kids get better eggs or more eggs than others, then Zylkene may help to calm them down.

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.

With Lewis in South America investigating importing of dog hats (not hats for dogs, but actual dogs as hats), we won’t be posting an episode next week, but we will have some fresh fresh pod goodness for you the week after.

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…
