Episodes 30 & 31: Dr. Joe Bartges

Urine luck! We have two episodes with Joe Bartges, DVM, PhD, DACVIM, DACVN of the College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Georgia. Joe says urine is liquid gold – discuss! We chat about idiopathic cystitis, a frustrating disease that most vets know all too well. We also manage to talk about chronic gastrointestinal disease, diabetes mellitus, bladder and kidney stones, and even more importantly – Who is the world’s most cunning cat? Why won’t Jolle eat octopus? Tune in and find out – are cats aliens or gods?
