41: Spewing!

Welcome to the VetGurus podcast! Where else can you find out how to stop seagulls getting drunk, learn about a new species of venomous snake, hear about breeding rhinos in Australia and debate the pros and cons of animal research? Nowhere else! That’s why you listen (sometimes) and why we provide you with the best (or maybe the most obscure) news items.. and keep the emails coming in with news items for us to share.

Our main topic this week is vomiting in dogs. Brendan and Mark chat about cases of ‘garbage guts’ – acute vomiting in dogs. They discuss their top 10 – or maybe 20 – tips for dealing with these cases, such as how long do you ‘rest the gut’? What diagnostics to consider (or not)?
