DOG TALK, Feb. 11, 2012

Once again, Tracie Hotcher features a diverse lineup in this week’s broadcast of DOG TALK® radio show with guests to interest both dog and cat lovers:

  • Tracie talks about recognizing and managing the pain that older dogs have from arthritis and adopting all the measures available as soon as you see signs of stiffness, difficulty getting up and moving around: a high quality joint supplement like Platinum Performance, an ecologically conscious and pure omega-3 fish oil like Nordic Naturals, use of anti-inflammatory medication like Metacam, a series of Adequan injections and finally the turn-back-the-clock miracle of stem-cell treatment.
  • Dr. Elizabeth Hodgkins discusses the pheromone spray and diffuser Feliway — when to use it and where not to employ it.
  • Dr. Michael Moyer is the head of the department of shelter medicine at the University of Pennsylvania veterinary school and discusses how to improve conditions in shelters for cats, which lowers their stress, reduces illness spreading, and increases adoptions because cats are more relaxed.
