    Real Rescue, a Rogue Rescue or a Hoarder? Tune in and learn the difference!

    in Pets

    There has been a lot of talk lately about what is a reputable rescue vs. a questionable one. Why are we seeing more and more cases of animal hoarding? In some cases, these animal hoarders are associated within the rescue community. "Animal hoarding is a complex and intricate issue with far-reaching effects that encompass mental health, animal welfare and public safety concerns. Animals "collected" by hoarders range in species from cats and dogs to reptiles, rodents, birds, exotics and even farm animals." This quote was taken from the article below.

    Fish Keeping 101 Beginner Guide: Setting up & Planning your First Aquarium

    in Pets

    The Tropical Fish Keeping Hobby has been getting more popular over the last few years and for good reasons.Fish tanks have been proven to be a great stress and high blood pressure reducer as the fish help soothe the mind and soul and make you feel calm and enjoy the watery scenery. Many people either enter the aquarium hobby from a family member who had a tank but no longer wanted it, or they want a new pet. Movies like Finding Nemo and Finding Dory have also caused kids to want to rush out and get an aquarium to keep fish. However, not everyone who gets into the aquarium hobby will succeed because this hobby requires a lot of research and time! Most people fail because they add fish too fast or get the wrong fish.

    Vets Compare Homemade Versus Store-Bought Pet Foods

    in Pets

    Are home cooked pet food diets really better for cats and dogs? A group of vet nutritionists are looking at fresh versus store-bought pet foods in a groundbreaking new study. On this episode of Tripawd Talk Radio we'll speak with pet nutrition expert Dr. Donna Raditic, DVM, DACVN, CVA.
    Fresh Versus Store-Bought Pet Foods Study Needs Your Support
    Millions of dogs and cats are fed high heat processed, commercial foods throughout their lives. But is this really the best nutrition we can offer?
    Heat treatment of foods can cause a reaction between the proteins and sugars called "the Maillard reaction" which results in the formation of what is termed dietary Advanced Glycation End- Products or AGEs. Studies have shown that elevated levels of AGEs in tissues are associated with age-related diseases in humans, rats, and dogs including diabetes, cataracts, osteoarthritis, atherosclerosis, renal disease, cardiovascular diseases, and cancers. Dietary AGEs and their accumulation in the body may be one of the ways diets can impact age- related diseases in humans and our companion animals.
    Preliminary data suggests some pet foods may contain over 122 time the AGEs found in processed human foods!
    A groundbreaking independent study led by the Companion Animal Nutrition and Wellness Institute (CANWI) will compare the levels of AGEs in processed and fresh food pet diets and evaluate the influence of feeding differing intakes of dietary AGEs. The study will involve veterinary nutritionists, food scientists and one of the most prestigious veterinary colleges in the Country.
    Learn how his study can help pet parents make better food choices for our cats and dogs. Dr, Raditic will explain what CANWI does and how pet parent support is critical to the health of our pets.

    Empire State Reptiles Live with Justin Kobylka

    in Pets

    Tonight's show is sponsored by KingDubia.com
    Like many in this business Justin  had an unexplainable attraction to cold-blooded creatures since birth. Throughout his life Justin has kept reptiles, early on it was usually anything he could find in the wild around his home. In high school Justin began keeping different types of constrictors including Ball Pythons and a Boa Constrictor, as well as a couple rattlesnakes that he found in rural Oklahoma. 
    About us:
    We are reptiles enthusiasts from Brooklyn, New York and we have always been some of the many that ask ALOT of questions about an animal before buying them. We have always had the same dilemma with nearly every breeder we encountered; communication!  We always wanted to keep breeders on the phone forever and ask them any question that came to my mind, however we knew that was not possible since they have personal lives just like we do our selves. We wanted to create a platform where breeders and their fans can connect while sharing knowledge at the same time. After 18 months of trial and error, Empire State Reptiles Live was born. We hope that you all find our show enjoyable and that you tune in for many years to come!

About Family

Like the TV show, modern families come in all shapes and sizes. Many children are a product of divorce, are in touch with both their biological and adopted parents, have two moms or two dads (or both), or are being raised by their grandparents. No matter how atypical the face of today's family, the values stay the same: love and support. Moms and dads will find plenty of support in BlogTalkRadio's parenting shows, especially those about time-management topics that fit both stay-at-home and working parents: organizing kids' activity schedules, decluttering, reducing the workweek, managing stress, making quick meals and more. We've also got shows about friendship – you know, your family of choice rather than family of origin. Just remember: everyone's family seems dysfunctional in its own way. And family may irritate you, but more often than not, you can always count on family to pick you up from the airport.
