WGN Radio Petcast: Chelsea Kane Dances for Shelter Dogs; Dogs on Lake Michigan; Tick and Roundworm Control


Share

Disney TV star Chelsea Kane danced her way into the hearts of millions on “Dancing with the Stars.” Now she’s dancing her way into the hearts of shelter dogs, via Pedigree’s “Every Dog Deserves” promotion. Chelsea talks about her Woman (that’s her dog’s name!), her devotion to animals and what “Dancing” is really like behind-the-scenes.

If it wasn’t for my WGN Radio show, there wouldn’t have been a Lake Michigan Canine Cruise. Holly Agra of Mercury Chicago’s Skyline Cruiseline reminisces about how this crazy idea started in the first place. This is a 90-minute excursion on the Chicago River and Lake Michigan for you and your best friend(s) with four legs, 9 a.m. Sundays (get the boat, SE side Wacker and Michigan Ave.). And, no, your dog may not use the ‘poop deck.’

The rainy weather has been a fertilizer, of sorts, for ticks. And with a proliferation of ticks, there’s an influx of tick disease. You want to protect your dog — of course — but what product do you choose? What works, and what might be a waste of money? Veterinary parisitologist Dr. Michael Dryden from Kansas State University College of Veterinary medicine talks ticks.

From the famed Companion Animal Parasite Council, veterinary parisitologist Dr. Dwight Bowman from the Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine discusses roundworms. This may not sound exciting, but the topic is important. According to the CDC roundworm infections are far more common than people may think (14% of us have ingested roundworm larvae), and may potentially even cause blindness (most often in children), and other illness.
