This is episode 2 with Dr. Emmanuel Fontaine, a therio expert from Canada. We love to talk about reproduction in cats.

Dr. Kelly and Dr. Jolle are back with an episode discussing recent articles. One article is about foxtails or grass awns in cats and the d-word. Most foxtails occur near the eye in cats! Another article discusses Ragdolls and specific blood values in this type of cats. Do we now have to have normal values for all breeds of cats?

Dr. Kelly and Dr. Jolle discussed new articles this week. The first one discusses the use of non-core vaccines. There is quite a variation in coverage in the USA, and the article explains the possible why behind this. There are quite a lot of cats involved with this study! Another article discussed the student's attitudes toward working with cats. Dr. Jolle confesses his inaptitude with dealing with horses in general.
Dr. Susan and Dr. Jolle are back live from beautiful Kansas. We discuss a new magazine from AAFP, the American Association of Feline Practitioners. This new magazine will be available for all AAFP members for free and we also think about open access vs paid journal subscriptions
Dr. Susan and Dr. Jolle discuss recent articles. The first one is deleting the gene that is responsible for the protein to which most people are allergic. A technique called Crisper was used to delete the gen out of cell lines. The second article talks about cats recognizing the other cat's name. If the wrong name was used, the cats were confused.
This is a repeat episode of a while ago with our amazing guest Dr. Panos Xenoulis. He is one of the world's most famous pancreas experts, especially when we talk about cats (and that is all we do!). Panos lives in Greece and did most of his graduate work in the US and worked at Texas A&M for more than 10 years. We discuss how cats are different in showing signs of pancreatitis and discuss the most common tests to diagnose this disease. Whoever thought that pancreatitis is not common in the cat, listen up! The topic was requested by a faithful listener, so thank you for that suggestion.
Dr. Sarah Heath is joining us for this short summer cat bite. Taped in beautiful Rhodes, Greece, during ISFM. Dr. Sarah Heath is from the UK and talks about cat behavior and the importance of thinking about the health triad: the interplay between emotional, cognitive, and physical health. One of the topics is zero pain in cats. A cool 10 minutes in the Greek heat of summer.
