DOG TALK, Sept. 15, 2012

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

  • James Rollins has written many New York Times bestsellers, but BLOODLINE is extra-special because it is a riveting science-based thriller that features a splendid military war dog and his handler.
  • Dr. Donna Spector (the Official Second Opinion Vet and Veterinary Nutrition Advisor on both Tracie’s radio shows) goes into depth about urinary tract problems, focusing on individual cases with a cat and a dog. Dr. Donna also recommends the individualized special nutrition counseling and support at U. C. Davis vet school for owners and their veterinarians. Read more about it at


Neko Flies (the wand toy that “brings out the kitten in your cat”) and Whole Life Pet treats have teamed up to celebrate everybody’s cute kitty cat—and raise awareness that cats need stimulating, challenging play and they deserve a (protein only!) treat when the fun is over.

In this contest you win something just for entering—a generous sampling of Whole Life Pet pure-protein treats. If you’ve already sent in your photo to Tracie at then you’ve also received the swell Whole Life Pet treat sampler (or it’s on its way to you). The big prize is a Neko Flies wand toy (the Official cat toy of CAT CHAT®) but there may be multiple Grand Winners if more people keep entering—tell your friends and co-cat lovers to join the party and check out the gorgeous entrants who are already strutting their stuff:

This is one of two radio shows by pet author and canine nutrition expert Tracie Hotchner, who also hosts CAT CHAT® every Wednesday on Martha Stewart Living Radio on Sirius/XM Satellite. Tracie Hotchner is the author of The Dog Bible: Everything Your Dog Wants You to Know and The Cat Bible: Everything Your Cat Expects You to Know.
