8-4-12: The Itchy Pet
Our expert guest on the August 4th show was Dr. Lindsay McKay, a board-certified specialist in veterinary dermatology. Dr. McKay discussed how allergy issues are the number one reason people bring their pets in for an exam and can encompass many symptoms from scratching, rubbing, and licking to ear infections. Dr. McKay also discussed advanced diagnostic and therapeutic techniques. Our feature, “The Real Scoop or the Real Poop,” involved the myth of grain-free diets. Dr. McKay explained to our listeners that most allergies are caused by proteins. She recommended a novel protein and carbohydrate diet to improve food allergies.
