DOG TALK, July 14, 2012

This week on Tracie Hotchner’s weekly DOG TALK® radio show and podcast:

  • Jackson Galaxy, from TV’s “My Cat from Hell,” talks about his new autobiography called Cat Daddy: What the World’s Most Incorrigible Cat Taught me About Life, Love and Coming Clean. Jackson discusses his time working as a shelter employee and how his natural affinity for cats led him to his cat-centric professional life. Jackson also talks about liking Neko Flies (coincidentally the Official Toy of CAT CHAT®) so much that he has used them on his TV show and sells them on his company website, Spirit Essences. He’s giving Dog Talk® listeners a 5 percent discount on the Neko Flies, Spirit Essences—but you have to use this link:
  • Dr. Donna Spector (the Official Veterinary Nutritionist and Second Opinion Veterinarian of the show) talks about a new saliva testing kit that claims to discover food allergies in dogs—and what the flaws are behind such a premise. Dr. Donna discusses how rare true food allergies are in dogs, and describes that the most reliable way to uncover whether your dog actually has food intolerances is by conducting an “elimination diet,” and how to do that.


On this week’s show, Tracie talked to cat expert Caroline Golon of about kids and cats: how to have a safe and happy relationships — by using a wand toy like Neko Flies.
