There is probably a lesson to be learnt here but it has gone over my head!
It has been a big week. I have retired from my practice and now intend to spend a lot of time fishing, making cheese and recording podcasts. The format of the podcasts has changed slightly as well and they are now more anecdotal. Think more antipodean James Herriot! In this podcast I have to question my own disease status!
As we get older, so do our joints and arthritis and stiffness may occur. This is also true for our dogs. Would you recognize early arthritis in your mate? Also, for those of you living “The Good Life” what do you do when your hens become “clucky”?
“Just the cats whiskers” and “The cat came back the very next day” are both common expressions (at least in New Zealand). In this episode we discuss the function and uses of whiskers for cats and look at “how the cat came back"?
Have you ever thought of how and why cats purr? Probably not, but I am going to tell you anyway. Scott Arnold, a vet from Ontario Canada (although probably by the time this podcast sees the light of day, Newfoundland) discusses marijuana toxicity in dogs, which he is seeing on a regular basis now the dope laws in parts of Canada (and elsewhere around the world) have been relaxed and to finish, sometimes dogs eat the weirdest things. This will be of particular interest to Golden Retriever owners and quiz night enthusiasts.
In this episode we look at something right under our nose, Cats' Whiskers, we discuss the strain of being an after-hours vet and have a "Better Work Story"
