Robbie’s date with Charlie Pickering, lumps & bumps, Part 3 of weeing cats and a pregnant woman rescues a dog from the sea – Episode 9

It’s late at night in the podcave and the two Supervets are still struggling to get their heads around the new microphones and have been giggling like school boys try not to make each other echo when they talk.

Lewis talks about his regularly ‘boys steak night’ with some heavy-hitters of the veterinary industry and Robbie ponders how Lewis managed to get an invite…

Lewis’ highlight of the week is a dog that was rescued by a pregnant lady who swam 200 metres off shore to stop him from drowning – not all heroes wear capes.

In the same vein, a cape-less Robbie chases Puffing Billy and then narrates a modern tragedy called ‘when a podcast vet locks eyes with an uber celebrity’. Robbie shares his encounter with TV celebrity Charlie Pickering and his promise to the podcast listeners.

Robbie then dives into the more vet related topic of lumps and bumps on your pet and pulls no punches with questions such as; Does size really matter?; How do you know if that lump is nasty?; What should I do if I find a lump on my pet?; Is every lump cancerous? What will the vet do when they examine the lump? Is it better to have the lump examined or just ignore it?

Lewis then launches in to Part 3 of cats urinating outside the litter tray – problems a cat may have with the litter tray or litter substance or the location. Robbie coins the phrase ‘litter buffet’ and gives us some further insights into poor Melvin, his over-grooming, urine spraying and toilet missing house cat.

As usual, the two vets would love to know what you think of the show or ask any questions please find us in the Yellow Pages, on MySpace, Facebook , Instagram or Twitter. Or send us an email twovetstalkpets@gmail.com

Gold medals, dogs at school, cruciate injuries & pooing outside the litter tray – Episode 5

School holidays are in full swing on the East Coast of Australia, as are the Commonwealth Games and somehow the guys link Australia’s haul of Gold Medals to their recent podcast rankings.

Lewis then discusses taking your dog to school for pick ups and drop-offs. How can you tell if your dog truly enjoys this? What are the risks associated with this?

Robbie kicks off a chat on knee (cruciate) injuries in dogs and which joint he considers to a be ‘non-stupid’. How does it occur? What are the symptoms and how is it fixed? Nostalgia takes over as the guys discuss the relative merits of Nike Air vs Reebok Pump sport shoes. Robbie then shares advice both from his Nan and a respected specialist veterinary surgeon, Dr Sam Snelling.

Mailbag is uncorked and Lewis discusses cats defaecating external to the litter tray (box). What can you do if this is a problem for your cat? SBS syndrome is coined and a shout-out to all Dads reading the newspaper currently (while listening to this podcast, of course). Check out the Litter Kwitter that is mentioned here.
