DOG TALK, Nov. 24, 2012

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

  • Tracie is proud to announce an “educational partnership” with Dr. Shelby Neely of, who had a cats-only veterinary clinic which she sold to become a house-call vet (in the Philadelphia area) and to concentrate on reaching a much wider audience of cat lovers with advice and information on her jam-packed website — where she wrote a glowing description of one of her favorite cat toys and even recorded her cats enjoying it — which happened to be the Official Cat Toy of my shows, the Neko Flies! (You can purchase Neko Flies right from Dr. Neely’s website to help further her educational efforts).
  • John Homans has been the executive editor of New York Magazine for a very long time but has shown another extraordinary talent in his first book, WHAT’S A DOG FOR? which is such a fascinating historical and personal perspective on the relationship of canines with many celebrated people that Tracie has invited him back soon to discuss the second half of the book (so rush right out and get it so you can enjoy the to-be-continued conversation even more).
  • Dr. Julie Albright holds the Petsafe Chair in Veterinary Behavior at the University of Tennessee Veterinary school and discusses the importance of seeking professional help as early as possible when a behavior issue crops up because the longer a pet has a problem, the more difficult it is to solve.


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.
