Exotic Pets (9-29-2014) #201: The show debuts with co-host Dr. Karen Rosenthal, Dean of St. Matthews University Veterinary School in the Cayman Islands, who has a long history studying and caring for exotic pets. She and Tracie kick off the new show discussing America’s favorite exotic pet, the bunny rabbit — of which Tracie had several as a child and asks Dr. Karen whether the story her mother used to tell told about the rabbit needing orthodonture could have been true. Dr. Karen talks about the House Rabbit Society that helps support proper care of bunnies and explains that dental issues are the number one health issue for rabbits. Bugs Bunny did all house rabbits a disservice by munching on the orange part of the carrot when what a rabbit really needs is the leafy green top part!
