Dr. Marty Becker (moderator): Veterinary visits are down, particularly for cats. Luckily, there is not only an answer to declining veterinary visits but a way to ensure that pet owners think of veterinarians as the true pet health expert and, moreover, say yes to our professional recommendations: Fear Free veterinary visits. Simply put, you just have to take a pet’s emotional well-being in one hand and physical well-being in the other. Learn how to help YOUR cat, dog, ferret, bunny, significant “furry wonder” take the “fear” out of proper care.

Denise Fleck:  Having taught 10,000 pet lovers animal life-saving skills, Denise will help you rescue Rover or help Fluffy feel better BEFORE you can get to veterinary care, but will also provide tips, techniques and tools to help your pet become more comfortable around his second best friend...his veterinarian!  Sunny-dog Ink and the Pet Safety Crusader (TM) help you keep it “fear free” for your pet's sake.

Dr. Elizabeth Colleran:  Cats still have three out of four feet firmly planted in their wild origins. The New Cat Science explains who cats are, how they experience the world, how they think and why they act the way they do to bust common misunderstandings/misconceptions when it comes to cats and their health.
