We begin with a revealing discussion with Anthony Bellotti, who leads White Coat Waste, which is working to determine how our tax dollars are used in research involving dogs and other animals.
Mr. Bellotti wants to radically revamp the US system of animal experimentation, where most of the research is funded by tax dollars. White Coat Waste just released a report titled Spending to Death, which has attracted national attention because it demonstrated a near universal lack of transparency across the agencies on how the funds are being used. Learn more about White Coat Waste here and contact your US representatives to voice your concerns.
Next up, Lori speaks with Dr. Douglas Kunz, Medical Director of Desert VCA Animal Hospital about diabetes in cats, from symptoms to diagnosis to treatment. Did you know that diabetes is present in one out of every 200 cats and that it is more common in females?
The show continues with a delightful discussion with historian and author Kate Kelly about the pets of the Presidents. Do you remember that George W. Bush’s dog once bit a reporter? You’ll enjoy these two segments! Check out Kate’s website, America Comes Alive.
