Dog Talk #347 Tracie Hotchner (11-16-2013)

Dog Talk #347: Arnie Arluke talks about his book The Photographed Cat: Picturing Human-feline Ties 1890-1940 (Syracuse Univ Press) and what it tells us about cats in our society; Kerry Heuter, the veterinary internist at the Animal Specialty Center in Yonkers, New York describes his “typical” 18-hour day, going from the Chinese Crested dog with something lodged in his esophagus to the “constipated” cat who actually had a tumor in his lungs; Mary Straus’s little terrier had a life-threatening encounter with an Attack Raccoon right outside her own door in Northern California — she wrote about it in The Whole Dog Journal and shares the story and happy ending.
