  4. Thundershirts – Do they Work?
  5. Salt Lamps and Oil Diffusers – are they Safe for Cats?
  6. Cats Scratching Furniture

Doggy Dementia, Anal Gland Abscesses, Stressed Pets At The Vets – Episode 19

Welcome listeners to episode 19 of the Two Vets Talk Pets Podcast!

We start off with our regular Chitty Chat, Robbie talks about a little dog who had a problem before coming in for her spey, Lewis and Robbie remember some funny plugs and things they have taken out of cats. Lewis talks about diving in the Galapagos Islands, and checking in with our old mate Thomas Hildebrandt who is up to his old tricks again, and Robbie asks Lewis whether it’s OK to laugh at YouTube videos with the kids (here’s the Video of the Cops and Robbers Dachshunds).

Into the meaty bit of the podcast, and Lewis has been looking into possible use of Stem Cells to help with Doggy Dementia.

Robbie has had a spate of Anal Gland Abscesses (cases at work, not his own), so they guys talk about causes, treatment options, and safety of surgery.

And finally Robbie talks about some successes he has had using Anxiety Reducing medications in stressed out pets to reduce their anxiety when then come in.
