067 Add This Cancer Fighting Food to Your Dog’s Bowl & A trick for Getting a Pill into the Cat.

May 18, 2020

Children are always implored to eat their vegetables. There is someone else in your home that would benefit from eating some fresh veges -it’s your dog. Find out in this episode the one thing to add to your dog’s dinner bowl three times a week that powers up their nutrition by adding micronutrients to their diet.  Then I’ll tell you about the Purdue University study that suggests that the eating certain vegetables may prevent or slow the development of bladder cancer in certain dogs.

Next, as part of the new feature, True Personal Pet Stories, you’ll hear pet parent, Frank Pantell, a podcast listener, tell you about his family’s dog, Paulie, who is rather small in size but always had big plans that got Frank into trouble. You can see photos of Paulie on our new facebook page as well as on the full show notes for this episode at www.raisingyourpaws.com.

Finally, do you have a hard time getting a pill into your cat?  I explain one of the physiological reasons for this and offer a tip I was given by my vet that worked really well with my cat, Willie for 19 years. Just like I suggested for dogs in the first segment, here’s an easy way to add some extra nutrition to your cat’s daily diet that helps keep kitties intestines healthy.

Invitation for you!

Do you have any good stories about your pets? Let’s tell them on the podcast. The theme for this month’s stories are a pet that saved you from getting in some kind of trouble or one that actually got you in a heap of trouble.
