Description
Dr. Nicholas Dodman is back. He is the world’s foremost expert on animal psychiatry. He’ll tell us about a horse with Tourette’s and dogs with Attention Deficit Disorder. He says our pets suffer from the same psychiatric maladies as humans and are often treated with the same medications. Also, Comedian Christine O’Leary not only teaches comedians how to be funny, she uses her powers for the greater good. Her shows raise money to rescue dogs from Aruba. She’ll tell us why comedy is like watching Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom. Also, Americans’ attachment to their pets has fostered a $60 billion industry that is producing best-in-show stock performance. Shares of several companies that sell pet food, develop diagnostic medical tests for animals and offer veterinary care, have far outrun the many other types of stocks this year, with an average total return of nearly 35% versus around 8.3% for the S & P 500. And finally, Virgin Australia Airlines is positioning itself as the “Pet Friendly” airline and you won’t believe what they’re doing to back up that claim. They have offered to fly rescue dogs across the country to new owners for free! Not bad in a day and age when most airlines ‘nickel and dime’ you for everything.
