Pet Health and Well-being

People love their pets- dogs, cats, birds and lizards- some people even consider chickens their pets. Taking an animal in, regardless of species, is a commitment of time and resources. We talk with veterinarian Steven Atwood about some of the most common pet diseases in our region, prevention and treatment options, and we take your pet health questions.

Our guest in the studio is Dr. Steven Atwood, veterinarian at Martha's Vineyard Animal Health Care.  Mindy Todd hosts.

Here's a link for information on Pet Health from the American Veterinary Medical Associates.

Also, here's a clip of" target="_blank">Harold, a cat who lives in Wellfleet.  He likes to be vacuumed.

Mindy Todd is the host and producer of The Point on WCAI which examines critical issues for Cape Cod and the Islands. She brings more than 30 years of experience in radio and television to WCAI.
