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?
Our inaugural PurrPodcast episode features a discussion of the stone types in cats, how they differ from stones in dogs, and how to diagnose them. Episode 2 is about management and prevention options for the different bladder stone types. Episode 3 discusses more management options, especially minimally invasive approaches.
