Episode 5: Pet Alzheimer’s and Shedding

OlderCat

John and Michael discuss the symptoms of Senior Cognitive Dysfunction, also called Dog Alzheimer’s or Cat Senility, and how supplements, antioxidants or medications may help, as well as how your pet’s brain is protected from their own blood. We also discuss why some pets shed, and others need haircuts, and the bad news about preventing shedding.

Here’s a link about the antioxidant that was mentioned, Astaxanthin, which otherwise would be impossible to spell.

Also, Dr. Rumore did a brief terrible rendition of the National Geographic them song- here’s the real deal.

Lastly, here’s a more information about the blood brain barrier that was mentioned. It’s a little technical but has some cool animation.

Episode 2: Litter Box Mysteries and The Joy of Toys

The Joy of the Litterbox A cat can be mysterious about many things, but few mysteries are more frustrating than why the darn cat has stopped using the litter box. We dive a little deeper into what cats really want in a bathroom (for example, not feeling like they are trapped in a elevator with someone wearing too much perfume) and give some tips on what to try. For those good little puppies and kittens who are not getting coal in their stockings, we mention some fun dog and cat toys. Lastly, John and Dr. Rumore discuss how pets do NOT make good surprise gifts.
