Lori begins with something any animal advocate ought to know about: the history of the animal rights and welfare movements. From the practices of ancient spiritual teachers of India, to the ideas of modern philosophers, Lori hopes this condensed history will inspire you to continue learning on your own.
We continue with stories about hummingbirds, the risks of cyanobacteria (often found in lakes and ponds) to dogs, how free roaming cat colonies can humanely be managed, and the pet obesity epidemic.
Next up is Dr. Douglas Kunz, Medical Director of VCA Desert Animal Hospital who provides sage advice on choosing safe toys and treats for dogs. Doug advises not to use hard chew toys, which can fracture teeth. Doug also doesn’t like pig’s ears and bully sticks because they may harbor E coli bacteria. Doug offers many other insights in this segment.
To conclude, Lori tells us about narwals and Brooklyn native Peter gets accustomed to snakes.
