Easter Epsiode (57) – Puppy School & Socialisation; Chocolate Toxicity; Lily Flowers & Cats; Pancreatitis; Xylitol Toxicity

Hello and welcome to our special Easter Episode of the Two Vets Talk Pets Podcast, also known as episode 57, where too much talking of pets is barely enough.

And where too much chocolate for vets barely enough!

In this weeks episode, the guys get stuck into some Wikipedia email, and Robbie has made himself sick from eating too much dark chocolate.

Lewis talks about how important Puppy Socialisation is, despite advice from a dog trainer that says not to do it. Lewis also has an update on Hugo the Tortoise looking for love, and Robbie has had a complaint about his hand size.

Into the Pod proper and we go crazy on all the things that can cause problems for your pets this Easter – with reminders about the big ticket items like Chocolate Toxicity, Lilly Toxicity with Cats, Xylitol (Artificial Sweetener) Poisoning, Sultanas, and the good old Pancreatitis Boogy Man from eating fatty food.

This episode is proudly supported by Zylkene from Vetquinol – a safe way to help your dog or cat that may be stressed or have a mild anxiety – safe in the young, the old, the big and the small, in the Canine, or the Feline. If your pet is getting stressed worrying about why Easter involves a magic rabbit that delivers Chocolate eggs in the night, and why some kids get better eggs or more eggs than others, then Zylkene may help to calm them down.

This episode is also supported by Prime 100 Pet foods – Australian made, Single Protein source diets for dogs and cats! Huge range, lots of flavours, for lots of different life stages, and diseases.

Camera stealing gorillas, megaoesophagus in Police dogs, chocolate toxicity & feeding the (Easter) Bunny – Episode 3

With Easter just around the corner our two vet heroes delve deeply into the life and (singing) career of the shows comedic anchor, Dr Robbie.

Topics then get serious with the guys discussing the recent outbreak of megaoesophagus in the Victorian Police and South Australian Correctional Service dogs and the precautionary recall of the Advance Dermocare dry dog food. If you are concerned your dog has been affected then contact your vet or the Mars Hotline on 1800 640 111.

With the abundance of Easter Eggs lying around, chocolate toxicity in dogs is discussed and we get an insight into other animals that might enjoy a chocolate Easter Egg hunt.

Lewis then turns the discussion to what snack your children should leave out for the Easter Bunny so that you don’t harm their teeth or their sensitive gut. This should be extrapolated to anyone that owns a pet rabbit (or a long eared guinea pig for our Queensland listeners).

Finally the guys bring home the rectal glove Olympic torch with a discussion on cats that are fussy eaters.
