Interview with Dr. Lee - Podcast # 19 Pls. comment - Ticks/fleas

Dear members,

Pet podcast #19 features our first interview with Dr. Lee where we discuss the differences between the top flea and tick products for dogs and cats. We discuss why some of these medications may be good (or not so good) for your particular pet. We also discuss issues around buying pet medications from online retailers.

The podcast can be downloaded or listened to almost immediately by clicking the triangle in the embedded player straight from the blog. http://www.pets.ca/blog/

As always comments are appreciated!

Thanks so much!

Marko

I tried, Marko--I'd love to hear it considering the tick situation around here. But, alas, hazel's connection thwarts her again! Any chance of getting a transcript?

Hi HRP,

A transcript will be released in the near future BUT for those that are on dial up or have bad connections, you can download the whole thing onto your computer and play it from there.

Here's how to do it. Go to the blog.
http://www.pets.ca/blog/

Under each podcast is a link that says download. If you click that link, your computer will download it (may take several minutes) and then search for a software on your computer to play it.

OR

Right click on that link and scroll to Save Target As...and choose that. Then your computer will prompt you to save the file wherever you want to on your computer. (I usually choose desktop). After it's downloaded, you can play it with windows media player or any other player that you have installed on your computer.

Hope that helped.

marko

Excellent podcast! We pay an awful lot each month for our multi-parasite medication for the five of our pets and it's very reassuring to hear another qualified person explain the pros and cons of the medications and how lifestyle plays a major role in determining which product is most effective.

When my vet recommended Revolution -- I honestly didn't understand this. We have been using it with all of our animals at a cost of approximately 80 dollars per month from the very beginning. I have had people ask me if perhaps we're paying too much. But the fact is we do literally live in drained swamp land ... where the temperatures rarely drop below 70 degrees F (21 degrees F) and fleas , ticks, and mosquitoes are ALMOST a year-round concern. Our animals are indoors -- but all have access to the outdoors at any time... and with all of our kids... indoor/outdoor traffic is high. Now I understand why our vet made his recommendation and I'm glad that we follow it.

Also -- as far as buying medication online... Several months ago I had gone into our vet's office and asked about using one of the popular mail-order companies to get our monthly medication. Our vet expressed a lot of the same concerns as Dr. Lee -- and instead offered to allow us to call in to their office directly for our regular medications and they would mail it to us direct given our situation with loading up all the children for a trip to the office just for the Revolution. He said he wouldn't do such a thing for just any client -- but that he trusts that we will always bring our animals in if they need medical attention. Perhaps this could be an option to discuss with their vet for others in similar circumstances instead of the online/mailorder route?

Thank you very much for this podcast and for the peace of mind that we're doing what's best for our critters.

Good job on the podcast . I would have liked a bit more detailed info on the actual products that are out there and possible side effects but overall quite informative .
