Choosing how to feed your pet – podcast from Newstalk’s Pat Kenny Show

Scraps from the table, dry pellets, or even a juicy steak? The food we give our pets varies from household to household. But are they getting everything they need? How should we be choosing their food, and what is really in their doggy bowl?

Questions from listeners about pets

The following questions were asked by listeners and answered by Pete in the podcast

  • Is it normal for a one year old German Shepherd not to lift his leg when piddling?
  • My dog is continually scooting: she has been given a wormer and had her anal glands checked. Why is she still doing this?
  • My cat keeps playing with and eating my house plants. Could these harm him?
  • Are slices of bought ham OK for small dogs? Someone said the preservatives would not be good for him?

Pete also did a Facebook live video Q&A session which you can watch here.
