Christmas Dangers for Pets, Thunderstorm Phobias, Dingo’s On The Nullabor, Death By Animals – Ep 40

Ho Ho Ho, and Merry Christmas from the Two Vets Talk Pets Podcast, where too much talking of pets is barely enough.

We start off by Robbie trying to educate Lewis on the fable of Krampus – the Christmas Demon!

Don’t forget to get your pets vaccinations up to date before they have to go into boarding!

Robbie tries to tell Lewis about the Bird through the car window story again – repetition makes it funny, Lewis finds some stats about what animals are most likely to kill you, and a colleague having problems with dingos in the desert. And Robbie talks about the benefits of a thorough examination. And Lewis finds a great new job for Robbie…

Make sure you’ve got enough meds to get you through.
