I've never seen anyone get so
excited about heartworm disease. In fact, I get a little worried. Dr. Sheldon Rubin, who at this point
has his own radio fan club, talks about heartworm prevention and reveals
new data. Listen, and I guarantee (or your money back) you will learn
about heartworm disease from the past President of the American Heartworm Society.

The benefits of human/animal interactions are well documented. Still, there isn't enough good science.

Pfizer Animal Health and American Humane Association team up to study animal assisted therapy for children with cancer

Pfizer Animal Health
has announced a ground-breaking study to learn more about how children
with cancer benefit from animal assisted therapy
, and even how their
family's and the medical professional involved might benefit as well.
Dr. Michael McFarland, Group Director of
Veterinary Medical Services at Pfizer announces this ground-breaking
study in conjunction with the American Humane Association.

Speaking of animal assisted therapy,


Lucy Fund, American Humane Association, www.americanhumane.org/lucy

I talk about the Lucy Fund with the American Humane Association, which I set
up to honor our dog, Lucy, who passed away in mid-May. Lucy was an
animal assisted therapy dog for half her life
, and the fund supports and
promotes heroic animal assisted therapy efforts.

If your dog has talent, listen up! I spoke with Rich Seng about his contest for the most talented dogs in Chicago - Chicago's Best Friend.
