Intimate Conversation with Dr. Jane Goodall

I’ve interviewed thousands, but never anyone like Dr. Jane Goodall, who should receive the next Nobel Peace Prize. My hope is that you support this effort. Dr. Goodall, who just celebrated her 85th birthday on April 3, is in person a slight women, who talks softly. Still, make no mistake about her ability to speak…

Protecting Pets from Heartworm Disease

Heartworm disease is nearly 100 percent preventable.  Still, according to the American Heartworm Society (AHS), most pet owners don’t use preventatives. Actually, if you want to get technical about all this, in dogs – preventatives don’t completely prevent heartworm – not completely. According to Dr. Stephen Jones, immediate past president of the AHS in a…

All the Cats: The Million Cat Challenge

As recently as 20 years ago, cats were considered a kind of after thought at most animal shelters. To be honest, their value didn’t always quite appear equivalent to their canine cousins, and shelters didn’t completely comprehend their medical and emotional needs. Launched in 2014, the Million Cat Challenge set out to save the lives…

Sir David Attenborough on Our Planet

Our Planet is a must see for anyone – young and old. If you have NetFlix, I hope you can take time to make viewing this series a family event. This nature series, narrated and hosted by Sir David Attenborough, features stunningly spectacular photography. I don’t have a clue how they managed to get these…

There’s No Need to Be the Alpha Dog

Last night when taking our dogs for a walk, I saw another two dog owners and their two dogs. Casually chatting, the dog owner with his older Beagle said, “Cooper gets this way when he wants to dominate me.” This guy would do anything for Cooper, and is by all accounts as kind and gentle…

Here’s exactly what The Dog Dudes say in their own promo video, “By observing and studying the natural behavior and social orders of wild wolves packs in domestic dogs, we have been…

No Vaccines, Or Too Few Vaccines: A Threat for People and Pets

The World Health Organization (WHO) listed “vaccine hesitancy” — defined as the reluctance or refusal to vaccinate, despite the availability of vaccines — among the top 10 health threats of 2019. Vaccination is one of the most cost-effective ways to avoid disease, preventing two to three million deaths annually, according to the organization. An additional 1.5…

Rhino Poacher Trampled by an Elephant and Eaten by Lions

A suspected rhino poacher was trampled to death by an African elephant, with his remains then eaten by a lion earlier this week. How about that for karma? Truly, the poachers are out of control, with far more weapons than the park wardens attempting to defend animals, I’m actually glad to see this happen. Really,…

Jane Goodall Institute Executive Director on WGN Radio

i begin my Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show HERE talking about the fire that killed over 30 dogs in January in West Chicago. That tragedy prompted me to say “enough is enough,” as these fires happen too often around the country. I contacted Marc Ayers, Illinois director of the Humane Society of the United…

Anti-Vaxxers: A Scary Trend in the Pet World

Anti-vaxxers – those opposed to nearly all or even all vaccines – are gaining momentum. Their claims are based largely on misguided and even made up notions regarding human vaccines, and even more distorted information regarding vaccines for animals. You might expect to read this sort of piece in CATSTER or DOGSTER magazines, and the…
