It’s no secret that companion animals can play a big role in the health and well-being of their owners. In the last few decades, there has been mounting research that proves that companion animals can have a positive effect on emotional health, heart health, fitness and social/emotional enrichment.

Today I am speaking with Kaushik Roy, executive director of The Shanti Project. He explains some of this interesting research and how it relates to pet owners. He also tells us what the Shanti Project is doing to help owners keep their companion animals, even if they are struggling with a financial hardship.

Reading pet food labels can be a challenge. With all of the recent recalls in the pet food industry, many owners are finding it difficult to trust pet food manufacturers and have become skeptical about the information contained on pet food labels. There is a lot of misinformation floating around about the rules and regulations that pet food companies must follow, so I wanted to speak with an expert that could help to clear some of this up.

I’m welcoming back Dr. Jennifer Adolphe. She has a PhD in Companion Animal Nutrition and is a Registered Dietician. She is also the Senior Nutritionist for Petcurean, a premium pet food company. Dr. Adolphe has come on the show to answer my pet food questions before, and today she is sharing her tips for reading pet food labels properly.

Parasites are one of the leading health issues that our pets face. Depending on the region that you live in, the risk of contracting certain parasites may be much greater than in other parts of the country. Some pet owners worry about the dangers of parasite preventatives, the cost associated with these products and/or how frequently they should use them on their pets.

In this podcast episode, I’m speaking with Dr. Craig Prior, a certified veterinarian who sits on the board of the Companion Animal Parasite Council. He’s sharing some very helpful information on the most common parasites found in companion animals and what we can do to prevent our pets from contracting them.

The ASPCA is an inspiring organization that works to help animals around the world. I often hear people mistakenly say that it is difficult to adopt animals from the ASPCA, and today I want to set the record straight. Not only is it easier to adopt from an ASPCA shelter than you may think, there are many other things you can do to help this organization if you’re unable to take in one of their homeless animals.

I am speaking with Rena, a director of an ASPCA adoption center. She’s giving me some insight into a typical day in her shoes. She also walks me through the adoption process and shares some helpful information for potential pet parents.

If you’re wondering what you can do to help your local shelter or rescue organization without adopting, Rena has some great tips for that too! Whether your home is already full or you cannot adopt for other reasons, there are a number of things you could do to help an animal shelter in your area.
