Animals’ Voice Pawdcast – Season 2, Episode 4

Since our furry friends are unable to tell us how they’re feeling you’ll need to be able to identify telltale signs of pain, and this podcast will help. In it, the Ontario SPCA interviews Dr. Sheilah Robertson of the American Veterinary Medical Association about assessing pain in animals. With 32 years of experience as a veterinarian, Dr. Robertson has focused on assessing and relieving pain in animals, with a speciailziation in pain management and anesthesia so she is an extremely qualified speaker on this subject.

I encourage you to listen to this episode of the Pawdcast on Sound Could or iTunes.

More Animals’ Voice Pawdcast episodes are planned, so stay tuned!

Host, Kevin MacKenzie, speaks with Dr. Sheilah Robertson of the American Veterinary Medical Association. Dr. Robertson discusses the current research involving assessing pain in animals.

Every 2 weeks there will be a new informative Pawdcast!

Charges of animal cruelty have been laid against the owner of a German shepherd found beaten and dying in a dumpster earlier this year.

Brian Whitlock, 26, is expected to make his first court appearance on Dec. 7.

“The B.C. SPCA is extremely pleased that Crown counsel accepted our recommendation for charges in this case,” said spokesperson Lorie Chortyk.
