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.

Robbie shares a Youtube video on Cats and Cucumbers, while Lewis is on the case of a Blood Thirsty Alpaca called Harry.    Robbie also talks about a slew of cute puppies he has had coming into the clinic (harking back to Episode 1 – back in the good old days where the show was recorded outside the Library!).
