On the third Monday of each month, Houston Matters goes to the dogs...and cats, as we welcome your questions about the care and feeding of your canine and feline friends for veterinarian Dr. Lori Teller from the Meyerland Animal Clinic and Texas A&M University. She's also president of the American Veterinary Medical Association.
On today's show, Dr. Teller discuss the signs, symptoms, and treatment for leptospirosis, a disease that is a potential threat to dogs but less common in cats.
In the audio above, she also fields a number of listener questions, including a few about cats who urinate too frequently, and one about a healer/brown brindle mix who needs a “job.”
She and Houston Matters host Craig Cohen also discuss what you should and should not feed your dog, including leftovers from the kitchen table. (Hint: Part of a bagel and lox is okay, but skip the cream cheese.)
