Listen HERE to this WGN Radio Petcast, it will be as good for you as your pets are.
Experts on the relationships we have with our pets, and those who want to know more about those interactions are welcome to attend - for the first time ever in the U.S. - the Conference of the International Association of Humane Animal Interaction Organizations (IAHAIO), and the 150th Annual American Veterinary Medical Association Convention. Dr. Rebecca Johnson (IAHAIO President) explains some examples of new research, such as walking dogs is really good for people (and dogs), using animals to help children with autism, what animals can do to stimulate learning in classrooms, horse used in therapeutic settings, how animals can assist in pain relief and much more. Here'a a print story I wrote about the IAHAIO Conference.
Dr. Mark Russak, past president of the American Animal Hospital Association explains that seeing a veterinarian for preventive care not only benefits your pet, it benefits your wallet. Need proof? Listen.
Fleas are not welcome! Veterinary Parisitologist Dr. Michael Dryden ('Dr. Flea') says you can get the best of parasites, and explains how to win the war.
Speaking of parasites American Animal Hospital Association CEO Dr. Michael Cavanaugh continues that discussion, and includes heartworm in the mix. Heartworm can be prevented, and lives saved – if only pet owners did he right thing.
