Apr 04 2018 35 mins  
You can't see, smell or hear them but each day we are all surrounded by high EMFs (ambient and man-made electromagnetic fields) in our homes and the outside world. These EMFs are proven to cause issues with insects and migratory birds' flying patterns, but how do EMFs affect the dogs and cats living in our home? Can EMFs increase pain symptoms and create problems for people and animals with compromised immune systems? Today's Tripawd Talk Radio takes a look at these questions.On this pre-recorded episode of Tripawd Talk Radio you'll hear from two people who can shed some light on the EMF issue. First we'll chat with 2018 TEDx Speaker Dr. Don Nixdorf, DC, formerly Executive Director of the British Columbia Chiropractic Association and Board of Advisors member for Farabloc Development Corporation, producers of the Farabloc medical aid that reduces exposure to high frequency electro magnetic fields.Next up, you'll meet Holly, mom to Purrkins, a front-leg feline amputee who suddenly developed phantom pain when the local power provider introduced a smart meter into his home.In this episode, we discuss:Why the absence of high EMF (ambient and man-made electromagnetic fields) has a profound impact on injury including recovery from surgery, burns, amputee phantom pain and chronic pain.Current research that demonstrates how faster wound repair and less associated pain when you reduce exposure to high EMFs.And, how Purrkins has found relief from phantom pain after the Farabloc blanket was introduced into his living area.Join the discussion on this topic here.

Vets Compare Homemade Versus Store-Bought Pet Foods
May 19 2017 30 mins  
Are home cooked pet food diets really better for cats and dogs? A group of vet nutritionists are looking at fresh versus store-bought pet foods in a groundbreaking new study. On this episode of Tripawd Talk Radio we'll speak with pet nutrition expert Dr. Donna Raditic, DVM, DACVN, CVA.Fresh Versus Store-Bought Pet Foods Study Needs Your SupportMillions of dogs and cats are fed high heat processed, commercial foods throughout their lives. But is this really the best nutrition we can offer?Heat treatment of foods can cause a reaction between the proteins and sugars called "the Maillard reaction" which results in the formation of what is termed dietary Advanced Glycation End- Products or AGEs. Studies have shown that elevated levels of AGEs in tissues are associated with age-related diseases in humans, rats, and dogs including diabetes, cataracts, osteoarthritis, atherosclerosis, renal disease, cardiovascular diseases, and cancers. Dietary AGEs and their accumulation in the body may be one of the ways diets can impact age- related diseases in humans and our companion animals.Preliminary data suggests some pet foods may contain over 122 time the AGEs found in processed human foods!A groundbreaking independent study led by the Companion Animal Nutrition and Wellness Institute (CANWI) will compare the levels of AGEs in processed and fresh food pet diets and evaluate the influence of feeding differing intakes of dietary AGEs. The study will involve veterinary nutritionists, food scientists and one of the most prestigious veterinary colleges in the Country.Learn how his study can help pet parents make better food choices for our cats and dogs. Dr, Raditic will explain what CANWI does and how pet parent support is critical to the health of our pets.

Meet Bart, the award winning three legged AKC champion! Tune in to hear Darcy Duval talk about her dog Bart, a 3-year osteosarcoma survivor and world-famous AKC show champion and master hunting dog who was the first Vizsla in history to have accomplished this title (start to finish) on 3 legs. Along with Bart we'll meet his long-time veterinarian, Dr. Abby Huggins, DVM, from Terrell Mill Animal Hospital in Marietta, Georgia, who discovered Bart's osteosarcoma in June, 2008. Dr. Huggins has worked with Bart since he was two months old. She graduated from Duke University in 1997 with a BS in marine biology and received her DVM from the Ohio State University in 2001, where she was inducted into Phi Zeta, the national verterinary honors society. Dr. Huggin's veterinary interests include soft tissue surgery, ophthalmology, and doing her part in promoting the human-animal bond.About Bart: In 2008, three year-old Bart was going along his daily life practicing for field trials, hunting and running up to 16 miles with his Mom Darcy. After a persistent limp wouldn't go away with R&R, Darcy took Bart to Dr. Huggins, his regular vet, who gave them the sad news that Bart had osteosarcoma growing in his scapula. Three years later, Bart is still in remission! Nothing slows Bart down and his accomplishments are many.
