Dog Talk #395 (11/15/2014)

Dog Talk (11/15/2014) #395: From England, where he is a Visiting Fellow at the University of Bristol, Dr. John Bradshaw discusses his book CAT SENSE and how little-understood our feline companions actually are — introducing us to the BBC series on cats that includes Ted, the kitten from the farm John mentions; http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/tv/posts/Cat-Watch-2014-The-New-Horizon-Experiment; Dr. Tracy Gillet from the Canadian pet supplement company Vivamune talks about developing an awareness of the ingredients we choose to eat for ourselves and our pets, surprising Tracie who had never heard of “The Dirty dozen and the Clean Fifteen” ingredients (http://www.ewg.org/foodnews/) — and the fact that there are enough pesticides in conventional strawberries that they could actually be used as a pesticide; Crystal from PAWS FOR VETERANS on the Florida coast talks about how Nordic Naturals is helping them in their work to choose dogs from shelters to train as service dogs for returning veterans — with the health benefit of their omega-3 fish oils benefiting both the handlers and the dogs.
