Zylkene, Kennel/Canine Cough, Puppy Castration, Cat Urine Problems, Live Export Update & Chinese Fake Zoo Animals – Ep 25

Hi podcast fans, and welcome to Episode 25 of the TWO VETS TALK PETS PODCAST, where to much talking of pets is barely enough.

This episode of TVTP podcast is brought to you by Zylkene from Vetquinol – talk to your vet to see if your stressed out pet could benefit from Zylkene.

Thanks as well to our fabulous Patreon supporters. If you’d like to help to support us in putting out the podcast, check out our Patreon page – choose a level you’d like to support us for. We thank you in advance!

In some house keeping – Robbie had some technical issues last week with putting up Rosie’s dental video on Youtube – well it’s up now, and the link is working, so check it out!

Lewis has had an odd week, with some nappy dumping issues, and gives an update on the Live Export and the latest press release regarding the companies involved.

Robbie talks about Chinese Zoo’s and the shenanigans they get up to in passing off animals that may not be as they are advertised after reading The Age’s Odd Spot. Tibetan Mastiff, and Penguins

and about some recurring urinary tract signs he has seen in cats in the last week (see previous talks on bladder disease in cats in previous episodes HERE)

Robbie then talks about Kennel Cough in Dogs – a really common, and really infectious cough in dogs.

We then return to the ASAV conference, with an interview with Anthea McClintock from Vetoquinol, and we talk about Zylkene.

Also we take a question from the Ukraine about whether it is a good idea to castrate a male dog.

  1. Hi! I am looking for a calming product (mainly Storms) for my 12yr-old chihuahua weighing 3 kilos. She is a very fussy eater. can you please help? cheers Heather

    1. Hi Heather,
      Zylkene is certainly an option for something that may help her with her phobia, but you want to try and start it a couple of days before storms are expected, or have her on through storm season.
      It’s pretty easy to use as it comes as a powder that could be mixed in wet food. It’s very safe too which is important in a small Chihuahua.
      For heavier duty medications, you will have to speak to your vet, or if you are noticing other behavioural issues, or other problems with your dog, get her checked by your vet too.
      Check out the podcast, we speak about Thunderstorm phobias and Fireworks in one of the episodes too, which may give you some tips.
      Hope this helps,
      Two Vets Talk Pets
