Dog Talk #377 (6/28/2014)
Dog Talk (6/28/2014) #377: Linda Case is the author of DOG FOOD LOGIC, which Tracie likens to Malcolm Gladwell’s riveting books that explain how we make decisions. Here, Linda Case explains all the unrecognized influences on our attitudes about pet nutrition, and the need instead for rational, objective thinking in making decisions about how to feed our dogs and cats; Dr. Kathryn Primm is a Tennessee native veterinarian who has gathered touching tales of her experiences with 4-legged patients in TENNESSEE TAILS; 16-year-old Annie Blumenfeld in Connecticut had to battle heartworm disease in her family’s adopted dog, Teddy, and she created Wags4hope.org. Please visit her Facebook page — https://www.facebook.com/Wags4Hope — for education about heartworm prevention. For her work, Annie was chosen as the American Heartworm Society’s Hero in 2013.
