Genetic Heart Disease in Dogs and Cats

This is an excerpt from our Facebook Vet Talk live where we talked about the consequences of unregulated breeding leading to unacceptable rates of genetic disease in pets (diseases like heart disease, seizures, hip dysplasia, brachycephalic airway syndrome, collapsing trachea, IVDD, skin allergies and many more). We also discuss the financial reality of major medical crises in pets.

WELCOME TO PET PARENTING 101! On this playlist, you will find all of the information that you need to be a responsible and informed pet parent, so that you can keep your furbaby safe from danger and be prepared for the worst case scenario. The year is 2020 and the days of being a "pet owner" are over. There was a time when pets were considered property, and people thought that if their dog got sick or broke a leg- "put it to sleep and get a new one." Our society's beliefs on the responsibilities of pet guardianship have evolved, but there is still a disconnect when it comes to giving pet parents the information that they need to be responsible and informed pet guardians.
