This week on Radio Pet Vet Dr. Randy is joined by Bernadine Cruz, D.V.M. representing AVMA. Dr. Cruz specializes in companion animal medicine and has been practicing veterinary medicine for more than 20 years. She is a nationally active speaker on general pet care, emergency preparedness and veterinary medicine. Dr. Cruz assisted in the development of the “First Aid for Pets — Dogs & Cats” course endorsed by the American Red Cross and the Humane Society of the United States. She is the author of “the Secret Sex Life of Dogs and Cats”; a text for pet owners that entertains and at the same time educates them on the reproductive behaviors of their pets. Dr. Randy and Dr. Cruz discuss the importance of proper identification and micro-chipping for our pets and how being prepared includes planning ahead.
