Welcome to Maine’s radio show and podcast all about dogs and cats and the people that share their lives. Our goal is to inform and educate you about the needs and wants of your furry friends so that your lives together can be the best that they can be. 

Kate and I discuss the latest news from the pet world covering a wide range of topics such as; basic healthcare, how to choose a good cat or dog food, training, behavior, and management of your pet, resolving problem behavior, serious health issues, and more. Sometimes a show is just the two of us having a conversation, but we also have guests on the shows from our hometown, Bangor, ME and from all throughout the USA. Veterinarians, authors, trainers, behaviorists, filmmakers, shelter managers, and others have all shared their knowledge with us on The Woof Meow Show

Whether you listen to our podcast or to the show as it is broadcast on Saturday at 9 AM on Z62 Retro Radio AM620, WZON, and WKIT HD3, we hope you find the show enjoyable and a valuable resource and that you become a regular listener. If you have a topic you would like us to consider for the show, contact me at

It's a Saturday afternoon and your male cat keeps going back and forth to his litterbox trying to urinate. It's 8PM on a Tuesday and your dog looks like they've swallowed a basketball and is pacing uncomfortably. It's Sunday morning and you dog seems fine but has bloody diarrhea. Which of these situations require an immediate trip to the emergency veterinary clinic and which can wait until morning or after the weekend is over? Don and Kate talk with the Veazie Veterinary Clinic's Dr. Dave Cloutier about how to know when you have a real life or death emergency and what to do. We discuss obstruction of the urethra in male cats, canine gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV) or bloat, shock as well as what to do when your pet has consumed something that may be toxic. We examine why a call to the emergency veterinary clinic or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center ((888) 426-4435) is a better strategy then searching online with Google. Some of the more common toxic substances consumed by pets will also be discussed. Tune in, what you learn just may save your pet's life. For more information on the Woof Meow Show go to:
