John and Dr. Rumore jump into how and why cats purr, and whether they could be using their purr to heal themselves, and possible others. They also discuss cold wet noses, what they really mean, and better ways to see if your pet is sick. They discuss checking the mucous membranes (gums) and capillary refill time (CRT).  Lastly, the dangers of Gorilla Glue!

Episode 6: Babies, Puppies, Kittens and It’s (probably) Not Ear Mites

Doctor Rumore has a new baby, Mia Rosabella, and his young white deaf boxer Coconut has an unexpectedly good reaction. We discuss how adult dogs and cats are supposed to treat puppies, kittens and babies, and why sometimes they do not always get along as well as we would hope. Also, why buying pet store ear mite medicine for your dog and cat is probably a big waste of money and effort. Additionally, it could be a waste of perfectly good fingers, because cats tend to really dislike ear drops.

Episode 3: Jealousy , Dominance, and Telling Time

Jealousy is never pretty

Jealousy is never pretty

Everyone talks about their pets being jealous, but can they really be “jealous?” The answer will be surprising, and may change the way you give out treats to your own pack. We also discuss how dominance between pets is more complicated than you think, and when you should or shouldn’t worry.  Have you noticed how your cat always knows exactly what time dinner is? We discuss how dogs and cats tell time without looking at their watch or cell phone, and how a group of scientists tattooing ducks helped us figure that out.
