Retractable Leads in Dogs, Chlorine Driving Cats Nuts?, Vet Clinic – Business and Stress – Episode 51

Hello and welcome listeners to episode 51 of the Two Vets Talk Pets Podcast, where too much talking of pets is barely enough.

In this weeks episode, Lewis talks about the importance of our awesome quarantine service, who have found cases of Foot and Mouth Disease in Pig Meat products being brought into Australia. And Robbie wonders why his cat Parker goes nuts around his board shorts after he’s back from a swim at the pool.

Lewis also has found a great article about the stressors of running a vet clinic, and how difficult it can be trying to deal with the expectations of clients, costs of treatment, and trying to juggle the running of a business.

So if you love your vet, give them a good review. And if you’re not happy with them, why not call them. Talk to them.

Then Lewis rocks right into a great look at why you shouldn’t use retractable leads for your dogs.

Not the washing line. Zylkene has ZERO effect on the washing line. If your washing line is stressed, maybe you need to stop swinging on it and pretending you are Superman. You are NOT Superman. You do not get your powers from Earths yellow Sun. And you should not wear your red undies on the outside of your pants. Or in general – and I’m talking to you Mr Abbott…

Otherwise, have an awesome day. I’m still not sure anyone actually reads down to this part… I’m so sure that no one reads this I’ve just cut and copied last weeks one.

And I’ll keep doing it, until someone tells me they read it…

Here we are – 3 weeks in a row. Cutting and pasting the ending. Let me know if you are reading this! (**FOOTNOTE: I’m reading this every week, Robbie and you’re doing a great job. This is the 3rd week I’ve put this in and you haven’t told ME you’ve seen my reply……Cheers Lewis**)

Week 4! Lewis is reading! Outstanding! Thanks mate. But that’s just making sure that I’m not telling people to make sure they subscribe to us on Patreon to get you watching a scary movie though! Still no one else has touched base. Maybe this week – maybe… (we live in hope Robbie, Cheers Lewis)
