Talking Pets 29th Sept 2016
Talking Pets features myself, Dr Jo, and David Prior at Talking Lifestyle (2UE) radio. We chat every Thursday evening for two hours and bring you the latest news about pets, travel and pet tech features, and answer your pet questions. It’s fun and it’s interesting and it’s a show for you – the pet lover.
This week’s Talking Pets show included:
Do you talk to your pet? Most pet owners do talk to their pets and research shows that talking to our pets can be good for us. So what do you say to your pet?
Dog Winery Tours
Take your dog on a trip to the Victorian wineries. Dogs and wine sounds like a perfect combination. Your dog will be pampered while you sip on a couple of vinos and have lunch. Or, if wine’s not your thing, you could watch a movie together. Gourmet Pawprints, and its founder Kerry Watt, can even help you plan a wedding!
Listen to Dog Winery Tours
Pet Taxi Service
Sometimes we cannot drive, yet we need to transport our pets and public transport just does not cater for pets. A pet taxi could be the answer. We spoke with Janet Porter from Porters4Pets about the services that they provide around Sydney.

Pet humanisation and pet retail trends
Are you willing to spend anything on your pet? It seems we are these days and perhaps that is even helping our pets live longer. We spoke with Karen Justice from Just For Pets about the latest retail trends.

Ticks be gone
Paralysis ticks are a real problem in Australia and they are even spreading as far south as Melbourne! Dr Lisa Chimes, emergency veterinarian and Bondi Vet chats to us about prevention and the latest preventative treatments for pets including *NexGuard, the once a month beef-flavoured chew that protects dogs against both fleas and ticks and Frontline Spray for protection in cats.
*Unfortunately, no further giveaway products are available but stay tuned for more giveaways in future shows
