Episode 3    Animal General Podcast | Summertime, Rabies and Influenza – Oh my!

about this episode

Welcome back to my third podcast! In the first half of the episode, I focus on rabies and influenza in our pets including symptoms, diagnosis, vaccinations and treatments. I›ll also address common wildlife to be aware of as potential carriers and I›ll even name some cute animals you might not know to look for. In the second half of the episode, I spend some time discussing summertime dangers and potentially toxic foods. I›ll give you helpful information on fireworks and loud sounds, travel guidelines, and what to do to prevent overheating or even death on those hot and humid days – all to help your furry family member stay safe this summertime season.
