DOG TALK, Jan. 12, 2013

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

  • Dr. Kristin Holm helped develop a holistic supplement for aging dogs to help with their mental sharpness and physical well-being called GOO Silver, another lickable product (like the Doggy GOO Tracie’s dog Scooby Doo uses to relieve his licking and allergies) with all-natural ingredients that enter the dog’s bloodstream through the membranes in the mouth and the intestinal tract lining.
  • Phil Arkow is the head of National Link Coalition and the Animal Abuse and Family Violence Prevention Project, which study the link between abuse of animals as a bellwether of potential violence to people in the family and ways to intervene before abuse escalates. (See,
  • Tracie discusses how big commercial pet food manufacturers are trying to compete with premium brands by using a “first named protein” on their labels and hiding low-grade ingredients behind it. Tracie also talks about her new live call-in online radio show CAT CHAT® & DOG TALK® with Dr. Shawn “The Natural Vet” — who also had a pet show on the Martha Stewart channel of SiriusXM satellite radio until the channel was just cancelled. They launched their new two-hour show January 8th and are hoping lots of DOG TALK® listeners will call in every Tuesday beginning at 8 PM East (5 PM West) and together they will answer any question about your pets.

Do you have an older dog, slowing down physically and mentally? What if there was an all-natural supplement that could improve quality of life for your pooch in his Golden Years? Now there is GOO SILVER, from the folks at Doggy GOO (the anti-allergy lickable product that has helped itching and licking in Tracie’s dog Scooby Doo and so many others). The ingredients are all human grade and are based on findings from human clinical studies showing improved cognitive and physical condition with the anti-inflammatory, immune-system boosting ingredients. The product is created so that your old pooch licks it up (which is how all the GOO formulas work) and the ingredients are absorbed into her system through her mouth and digestive tract. Dr. Kristin Holm who helped develop GOO Silver will be on the show in the coming weeks to further explain how it works.

Meanwhile, if you’re feeling adventuresome and don’t want to wait another day watching your sweet old dog go gradually downhill, here’s an enticement: Special Offer of $10 off Silver GOO to DOG TALK® listeners (through the end of January). Go to and put SILVERGOO10 in the code box at checkout.

This is one of two radio shows by pet author and canine nutrition expert Tracie Hotchner. 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.
