Rank #1: Purring like a vacuum cleaner, high dogs and "Your dog ate what!"

Podcast cover
Read more
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.

Rank #5: The World of James Herriot with the son of the man himself, and Puppy Farming in the UK

Podcast cover
Read more
James Herriot is a name that is synonymous with old style rural vetting. Many of us would have read the books, or at the least, seen the television series. In the small town of Thirsk in Yorkshire, there is a very popular attraction called The World of James Herriot. Who better to talk to us about it than Jim Wight? Jim is the son of Alf Wight who wrote under the pseudonym of none other than James Herriot. The World of James Herriot is truly the world of Jim Wight! British MPs have called on the government to ban the sale of puppies in high street pet shops. We catch up with British vet Charlotte Farr again to find out what is behind this.

The first day of 2020 and our thoughts are with our close neighbors in Australia dealing with horrendous bush fires. Although we are 4000km to the east, we have a sobering indicator of how bad things are. Today's episode truly falls into the "Believe it or Not" category.
