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

  • Dr. Elsey (a feline-only veterinarian in Colorado) created a litter using herbs to attract cats into the litter box which grew into his privately owned Precious Cat litter company. He explains how he was inspired to invent Cat Attract litter because so many cats were being abandoned because of out-of-litter-box-issues and how his company continues to donate “Litter Box Issues” pamphlets and pallets of litter to rescue groups across the country.
  • Spencer Quinn talks about the pleasure of thinking like a dog in writing as Chet, the canine star of his most recent Chet and Bernie mystery A FISTFUL OF COLLARS.
  • Dr. Donna Raditic built the Integrative Veterinary Medicine Service at the University of Tennessee, where she is an adjunct associate professor and explains the value of the veterinary services she offers to patients: chiropractic, acupuncture and massage.


    Dr. Kristin Holm, one of today’s guests, helped develop GOO Gut Rescue and explains why it is necessary to repair the damage done by antibiotics to a dog’s digestive system and his entire immune system. It is also effective in combination with Doggy GOO — Tracie uses them together to calm Scooby Doo’s allergy licking (as do members of Tracie’s Doggy GOO Club, the Labs and Goldens who are helping her do an informal study of how effective it is for itchiness- write her at if you’d like to join the “experiment.” Read the GOO Gut Rescue Overview: (PDF)
