This week Anna is joined by the vet, Dr Nick Thompson, to chat about a campaign he is fronting called ‘Ditch The Dry’. Talking about ‘ You are what You eat’ and why overly processed foods like kibble, compared to fresh raw balanced complete meals, are damaging to your dog’s health; and why pet parents could do better by their dogs, helping to minimise common but serious health conditions like diabetes, arthritis, heart disease and obesity.
What's in a word? We communicate through speech, but dogs rely on body language, and minute facial expressions to get the meaning of 'words'. Dogs are great at reading us, but do we spend enough time learning to 'speak dog'?
Vet Lise Hansen joins Anna Webb to discuss Homeopathy on A DOG'S LIFE. She explains why it's not a black art and why it's impossible to compare it to conventional medicine. Homeopathy is understood by the laws of physics rather than the laws of chemistry. When you look at a CD it's plastic, you have no idea whether it will play Beethoven or the Beatles. Lise explains why an integrated approach to vet medicine is the future. And why in her own practice for over 25 years she has cured many dogs referred to her as a last resort. Her approach is to look at every animal as an individual even when they may suffer from the same condition.
