ON CAT CHAT & DOG TALK Tuesday May 7th Dr. Shawn will be away so Tracie’s guest co-host is Dr. Sue Ettinger, an oncologist who is the co-author of THE DOG CANCER SURVIVAL GUIDE, a book Tracie admires and believes every pet owner should own when they are facing the distressing and often confusing diagnosis of cancer. And Tracie will make the announcement that starting in two weeks, Dr. Sue will be joining the Radio Pet Lady Network as THE PET CANCER VET on Monday nights, right after CAT CRAZY. Tune in Tuesday night to ask Dr. Sue any questions and heard what a brilliant and compassionate vet she is.
And if you missed last week’s show, it’s always available on podcast:
Dr. Shawn shared the sad news that he had to put his 12-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Rita to sleep on Friday due to her congenital heart failure. He and Tracie discussed how to know when it is “time,” home euthanasia as an option; Dr. Alice Villalobos’ concept of “pawspice,” which is hospice for pets, and the reality that some dog breeds are destined to get life-limiting illnesses that owners need to be prepared for emotionally and financially; the importance of pet insurance with a discussion of how it works and why pet owners are confused about it and are reluctant to get this essential financial protection.
