WGN Radio Steve Dale’s Pet World

HEAR my Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show on WGN.  I comment on the WGN Walk of Fame, and the inductees: How my first newscaster when I was on WGN Saturday night was Andrea Darlas, just how insightful “King John” Williams is as an interviewer and WGN’s Marlene Wells, who works behind-the-scenes. I tell the…

Veterinary Suicide: Super Powers, Yes. Super Human, No

Being a veterinarian has never been easy, and arguably there are more pressures today than ever before. If you don’t believe it, consider this: Veterinarians are killing themselves in alarming numbers. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found male vets are 2.1 times as likely and female vets 3.5 times as likely to die by suicide…

Fear Free Happy Homes with Dr. Marty Becker

America’s veterinarian launched an initiate called Fear Free. In just a couple of years this one initiative has clearly been responsible for the most significant change in veterinary medicine ever.

Preparing for Disasters: Pet Safety Crusader

Contra Freeloading, A New Way to Feed Pets

Sure, we can talk about what to feed our pets but equally as important is how to feed them. Contra freeloading refers working for meals, even as a preference…

Veterinary parasitologist Dr. Michael Dryden of Kansas State University is bugged about mosquitoes, and explains that they transmit a disease called heartworm to dogs and cats. A half a million to a million dogs, he says, are getting heartworm disease. What’s totally sad about this is that heartworm is nearly 100 percent preventable. And the…

Fire Protection for Pets Law Passes in Illinois

Illinois is now the first state to mandate fire protection for pets in kennels/boarding facilities. Kennels now will require a fire alarm system ringing directly to first responders, a sprinkler system or a human being on premises.  This signing was the fifth bill I’ve been invited to a signing for in Illinois, but the first…

Waggle Foundation

I talk on my Steve Dale’s Pet World national radio show about the cost of veterinary medicine. I argue veterinary medicine is a bargain. Well, bargain or not – doesn’t help if you can’t afford it.  And that’s where Steve Mornelli of the Waggle Foundation comes in. The idea is to help people who are…
