“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"
There has been a groundswell of change in the gender proportion of veterinarians over the past few years. In 2013 80% of the veterinary graduates in the US were female. This change begs 2 questions. Why, and what is the effect of this change?

Coming from sunny New Zealand we don’t give it much thought, but ultra violet light is often lacking in the life of some pets, and finally, they may look pretty, but some lilies have the potential to kill your cat!
We once again catch up with Jim Wight, veterinarian and son of "James Herriot" to discuss life as a vet in his fathers time, and ask Scott Arnold the question that the awesome Australian band from the '80s, Hunters and Collectors, asked "Do you see what I see?". What does your pet see when it watches television?
