The Woof Meow Show


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 donh@greenacreskennel.com.

In recognition of February being National Pet Dental Health Month Kate and Don talk with Dr. Mark Hanks, discussing why all pet guardians should be concerned about dental disease in their pets. The American Veterinary Medical Association website reports that more than 85% of dogs and cats that are at least 4 years old have a condition in which bacteria attack the soft gum tissue - periodontal disease. The bacteria in the gum line due to periodontal disease can easily spread to other parts of the body such as the heart, causing serious illness. Dr. Hanks describes the procedure for cleaning a pets teeth and why general anesthesia is required. We talk about various approaches to preventing dental issues in both dogs and cats and the benefits of starting when our pets are still less than 16 weeks of age. Lastly we discuss which breeds are more prone to dental issues. We wrap up the show talking about a related issue; nose bleeds in dogs.
