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.
The Financial Times’ Chief Features Editor Henry Mance joins Anna to chat about his incredible book: How to Love Animals in a Human Shaped World. We discuss how to bring balance back into our lives so that animals can live a fairer life. Investigating whether us humans should all give up eating meat, to the conflicts between animal activists, conservationists and environmentalists, it's an utterly brilliant read. Henry even worked in a slaughter house and on a pig farm to experience meat production on the ‘frontline’, revealing how meat gets on our plate, few have had such graphic insight. Whilst dogs sleep in our beds, pigs are gassed using carbon monoxide.
