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 Pet Dentistry month and time for our annual show on the importance of dental health for our 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. This can contribute to even more serious health issues. Kate and Don talk with Dr. Dave Cloutier of the Veazie Veterinary Clinic about why it’s so important to have your veterinarian include a through dental exam as part of your pet’s annual wellness checkup. We discuss the benefits of having this exam performed by a veterinarian and what the procedure entails. Dental issues specific to both cats and dogs are reviewed as well as what you can do to at home to promote dental health and thereby minimize the need for dental procedures at the vets.
