We begin with Lori’s interview with Dr. Douglas Kunz, discussing the problem of obesity being overweight in dogs and cats. It’s very common. Kunz is Medical Director, VCA Desert Animal Hospital in Palm Springs, California.
Then, Lori reminds us how important it is that all animals in the family are microchipped, and how a chip reunited a dog with his guardian from 500 miles away! Then, what would happen to your animals if you were to die? Do you have your estate plan in place? Lori tells us what we need to do to make sure your dogs, cats, birds, and tortoises will be well cared for if you die before them.
Peter then welcomes back to the show Kate Kelly, who tells us the little known stories of the first elephants brought to the United States. Visit Kate’s website, America Comes Alive!
We wrap up with a talk with Susan Dapsis, President of International Society for Animal Rights, ISAR. The organization was charted over 50 years ago, making it one of the oldest animal welfare organizations in the US. Lori and Susan discuss ISAR’s worldwide activities, including International Homeless Animals’ Day.
