44: On the nose

Brendan wants to go to Bali – for work of course. Maybe he will be less angry about the situation with greyhound racing in New South Wales if he had a break? Mark goes mad about the pesky parasite toxoplasmosis, then sniffs out a story details dog’s detecting cancer in our final news story this week.

Upper respiratory tract diseases of the rabbit is our main topic this week. ‘Snuffles’ is the catch-all phrase often used to describe these disorders. We talk about the various causes of these commonly seen upper respiratory diseases in rabbits. Mark and Brendan then get down to a serious discussion of treatment and have a philosophical debate on the possibility of preventing these conditions.
