Episode Notes

In this episode of The Pet Factor we talk about Aural Hematomas that result from damage to the ears, including the causes and various treatments including non-surgical and surgical. Our Pet News segments reports on a study that tests if parrots can be selfless; a survey of Millennials that shows they chose their own pet’s health needs over their own, and research showing that childhood exposure to dogs can reduce the incidence of mental illness in people. Our case of the week features a dog with a torn cruciate facing surgery and alternatives we could offer. Brittney talks about how to find the right dog park for your pet and whether or not they are a good idea for everyone.
