Thriving Dog Pawcast

Jun 4, 2020

This one’s for those of us who’ve ever thought:


“Can I give my dog  ______?”


Who’ve rushed to Google after your dog scarfed down your leftovers.


Or, spent way too much at the vet when you fed him pepperoni. (YIKES!)


… (crickets)


Okay, maybe you haven’t done all that. But I know you've at least wondered what you should or shouldn’t feed your dog. And if so, this show is for you!


We have veterinarian, Dr. Mari Delaney, who created an app JUST FOR THAT!


Vet Protect is an app that helps pet parents prevent accidental poisoning. It lets you know what medication and food is safe or NOT safe for pets.


Not only that, it lets you know the amount you’ll likely spend at the vet for making this bonehead move. 




We chat about

  • Common culprits of accidental poisoning 
  • Symptoms of gettin’ chocolate wasted (Hello, Grown Ups anyone?!)
  • How the Vet Protect app works


Having seen too many patients for accidental poisoning, she thought, “I gotta help these pet parents out.”


Thus, the idea for Vet Protect was born.


So go download the app. It’s available on Google Play and the Apple App store.


Your dog (and your wallet) will thank you.
