Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is becoming a growing treatment in the human and veterinary medical fields. CBD is a substance extracted from the hemp plant, which makes it a controversial topic in either industry. As more research is being done on the effectiveness of CBD on health conditions such as cancer, arthritis, stress and anxiety, more and more people are seeking this treatment for themselves and their pets.

This week I was able to speak with Jeremy Feldman and David Nichols, co-founders of Pet-Ness. I interviewed Jeremy and David to find out why they decided to get into the business of CBD for pets, what benefits pet owners may notice after using these products and the many different types of pet products that contain CBD. They are also sharing many tips for pet owners who are interested in learning more about the benefits of CBD for pets.

From time to time, you’ll need to transition your pet to a new diet. Whether it’s because of a change in age, a health condition or just the fact that you’d like your dog to eat a healthier diet, you need to be sure that you transition your pet to the new food properly. If not, your pet will likely suffer from digestion problems including diarrhea, excessive gas and nausea.

Dr. Jennifer Adolphe is a regular guest on my podcast. In this week’s episode Dr. Adolphe discusses the importance of adding variety into your pet’s diet, how to properly switch from one dog food recipe to another and what to do if you notice that your pet isn’t adjusting to the diet change accordingly.

Dealing with a pet that has anxiety problems can be a struggle for even the most experienced owner. Whether it’s separation anxiety, noise aversion, anxiety about car rides or anything else, it’s important that you find the best way to help your pet deal with this issue. From over-the-counter treatments to home remedies, there are dozens of ways to treat pet anxiety. But, which option is best for your furry companion.

Anxiety can present in many ways. While some dogs may go to extreme measures to deal with anxiety (like chewing through walls, scratching up doors or breaking through windows to escape), others will not show such easily noticeable symptoms. For some dogs, anxiety could be shown through whining, excessive panting or shaking.

In this week’s episode, I speak with Lisa Radosta. She is an animal behaviorist with Purina. Lisa is sharing tips and tricks for dealing with pet anxiety, and she also discusses Purina’s new supplement that is specifically designed to help pets struggling with anxiety problems.

Fourth of July is almost here, and when you think about this upcoming holiday, you probably think about barbecues, lounging on the beach or fireworks. Unfortunately, our dogs only think about the bright lights, loud noises and strange smells that this holiday brings. Did you know that more pets go missing on the Fourth of July than any other day of the year?

I reached out to the Executive Director of Michelson Found Animals, Aimee Gilbreath, to find out what pet owners can do to help keep their pets safe on the Fourth of July (and every other day of the year). She’s sharing tips to help owners and their pets have a safe and enjoyable holiday celebration without having to cut out the bright lights and loud sounds.
