Dog Talk #401 (12-27-2014)

Dog Talk (12-27-2014) #401: Lissa Warren talks about Good Luck Cat: How a Cat Saved a Family, and a Family Saved a Cat, and her extraordinary emotional and physical challenges, which her kitty helped her overcome, while the cat underwent major life-saving surgery herself; Leo Grillo created the D.E.L.T.A. sanctuary [] on 115 acres in the hills above Acton, California, where he houses 1,500 dogs and 500 cats, which all had been abandoned; Tracie’s own vet, Dr. Linda Morris of West Mountain Animal Hospital in Shaftsbury, Vermont, talks about the burden on an owner of having to manage medicating a pet, as Tracie does both of her dogs — and Tracie tells Dr. Linda about the joys of customized compounded medications from Best Pet RX (with overnight delivery and guaranteed acceptance by your pet) and the value of using the SPOT platinum allergy test for dogs like her own (very itchy) Maisie. And a big heartfelt thank you to all the sponsors of the RADIO PET LADY NETWORK, without which we could not bring you all our amazing shows. Please show your appreciation of these fine companies by trying their products or services, all of which have Tracie’s personal endorsement.
